Norwegian sensation Alan Walker is undoubtedly one of the fastest-rising music producers within this industry. Through his impeccable implementation of his awe-inspiring signature sounds alongside some astonishing vocals, the young superstar has successfully accumulated an immensely strong following all across the globe.
Especially with his recent progressive house masterpiece titled “Sing Me to Sleep” and his mind-boggling remix of Coldplay’s “Hymn for the Weekend”, Walker simply continues to effectively showcase his prowess through his unique productions and to rapidly evolve as one of the electronic music scene’s most tremendous talents.
Of course, the particular track that most notably brought Walker toward greater prominence was his breakthrough hit called “Faded”. Since its release, this breathtaking song was able to not only rank first in numerous charts from around the world but also receive a highly coveted platinum record and amass over 500 million views on Youtube.
Aside from the massive support from fans, many of Walker’s fellow producers, such as Dutch legends Tiësto and Dash Berlin, have also provided their own rendition of this majestic piece of gem. After a diverse and plentiful set of remixes from some of the biggest names in the business, “Faded” receives another marvelous take, this time, from up-and-coming American artist Slushii.
Formerly known as DJ Swoon, New Jersey-native Julian Scanlan has now emerged as his other alter ego Slushii, who is certainly set to have an illustrious career within the realm of dance music. Since releasing his first-rate remixes of Kaskade’s “Disarm You” and Galantis’ “In My Head”, Slushii has clearly not stopped his impressive streak of releases.
Besides his remixes, he has also dropped a number of brilliant solo productions including “Emptiness” and “Statik Shock”. Following his latest single titled “All For You”, Slushii is back with an emphatic statement as his remix of Alan Walker’s “Faded” is nothing short of amazing.
Featuring some spine-tingling melodic progressions and ravishing synths, this remix surely delivers an incredible auditory experience from start to finish. For his version, Slushii also seamlessly mixes the original vocals alongside his captivating instrumentals, which would be capable of pleasing an entire crowd in a club or festival environment of any magnitude.
In addition, with its addictive basslines and staggering trap sounds, this remix also has the right amount of punch that would provide a lot of energy for any music event, including this upcoming weekend’s Hard Summer Music Festival in which Slushii is set to perform in his first-ever live show. Overall, this merge between progressive house and trap styles is an absolute treat to hear, proving Slushii’s creativity and versatility in producing music once again.
