(Los Angeles) March 3rd Disciple Recordings and Firepower Records have teamed up again to bring you a special release of Datsik and Barely Alive’s new single “The Blastaz”. Due out March 9th, this will be the third special collaboration between our partners in crime across the pond.
“The Blastaz” comes out early with a buildup, which clearly displays both Barely Alive and Datsik’s creative sound engineering techniques. The drop reveals a heavy, swampy, and electrified rhythm, free from the more melodic overtones both Datsik and Barely Alive tend to produce. The focus is on the synth arrangement that slices its way into your skull. It’s minimal but large, and is designed to unhinge minds and infect bodies with bass.
On remix duty is Diskord, who immediately introduces a series of melodic fixtures to the track. Then all Hell breaks loose. Diskord maneuvers the track into a heavy Trap anthem by continuing to maintain the melody. He adds a creative Hip Hop drum kit to fill in the gaps and let’s fly with all sorts of Trap madness. The remix keeps the aggressive filth of the original while placing it into the Trap style. The result is a festival banger that would work in all kinds of playlists and on all kinds of stages.
The tracklist is:
1. Datsik and Barely Alive – “The Blastaz”
2. Datsik and Barely Alive – “The Blastaz” (Diskord Remix)
