Abel Tesfaye, better known by his stage name The Weeknd, has undoubtedly been one of 2016’s hottest acts. Following up on his 2015 hit “I Can’t Feel Your Face”, the Canadian singer and songwriter has continued to stun the world with his soulful voice, leading many to call him “the next Michael Jackson.” His most recent studio output, an impressive EP titled “Starboy“, features multiple collaborations with the infamous French electronic duo Daft Punk, as well as an array of other featured artists such as Lana Del Rey and Kendrick Lamar.
While the entire 18-track EP is an outstanding piece of art, one of the tracks that stands out the most is “Rockin'”, the fifth track on the album and one of the highlights of the entire release. The track was bound to get remixed at some point, and it finally has, from one of the most talented producers in the world, Marcus Schossow.
Marcus transforms “Rockin'” into a deep, housey tune with a killer bassline that is sure to rock every dancefloor. The Code Red label boss takes no shortcuts when it comes to crafting a masterful release, and every second of this remix screams his prowess as a producer.
