One of our good friends, Aaron Wayne, recently put out an EP featuring four original tracks and three remixes showcasing some of the up-and-coming talent coming out of the Dallas area. As far as the originals go, they flex everything we have grown to love about an Aaron Wayne tune, powerful electro house style synths, deep kicks, and wonderful moving parts throughout the songs that keep the ear guessing. Of the four, I Hate Music is probably my favorite but I love the progressive feel he pulled off in Vitamin. The four originals play wonderfully together and I highly recommend listening to them from the beginning of Electrogressive to the end of I Hate Music, the evolution of his sounds are quite enjoyable to hear.
As for the remixes, each of them give the track a new style while still maintaining continuity throughout the EP. Taylor Thomas’ remix of Vitamin comes first giving the track a proper electro house extreme makeover. It keeps the beauty of the sounds Aaron crafted but kicks the entire thing into overdrive at all the right moments. IDestiny is next on deck and this one is big. The builds make the track for me, winding and winding until everything is unleashed into a in your face sound monster shaking your innards with massive kicks and snares. Mars Pluto, a new name here on the K, rounds things up with his remix of I Will Be Okay. Like IDestiny, he lets things build wonderfully allowing the original to shine through but when things get going and the bass comes in (his favorite portion of the sound spectrum) a whole new beast emerges.
The EP is free and available through Aaron Wayne’s Facebook but make sure to show some love to IDestiny, Taylor Thomas, and Mars Pluto as well!
