Predominantly known for his Deep-room vibes, at a mere 18 years of age, Alan Walker is trailblazing the scene as one of the industry’s rising talents. His 2015 track, “Faded”, put the Norway producer into the limelight while gaining enough coverage to be heard by the best; One in particular, Marshmello. Released this past week, the undercover EDM pioneer did what he does best and gave the track his notoriously bouncy-bass. Tackling Walker’s, “Sing Me To Sleep”, Marshmello truly experimented with this one.
From the start of the track, the song’s original ominous foundation still resonates, but on Marshmello’s terms. Vocal heavy with textured bass, the three minute record shows a different production style than most are accustomed too. Instead of his original summery piano notes, the song is more high pitched with super scattered harmonies. Above all a Future-bass record, Marshmello’s ability to cohesively mingle the song’s vocal range with his new, thought out style, might be the reason this track will stand tall as one of his most innovative to date.
A new member of the Red Light Management family, Alan Walker now works along side the likes of Jauz, Ghastly, Slushii, and Marshmello. Out of everyone on the management label to have been matched with Walker, Marshmello was defiantly the most unique choice. With two completely opposing sounds, “Sing Me To Sleep”, is a soon to takeover festival staple.
