A formidable and equally adept producer in his own right, Israeli producer and DJ MR.BLACK is a leading face in the dance music industry of his country. His rise to the high-ends of Europe’s major labels – with latest releases on Hardwell’s Revealed and on Tiesto’s Musical Freedom – has made him one of the keenly followed personalities amidst producers all over the industry. And now that the story has taken a global turn with production stalwart and DJ KSHMR announcing a collaboration with MR.BLACK, the future is an exciting prospect for the fans of both. While fans keenly await the collaboration, MR.BLACK has keeping their interest at heart and released a free remix of KSHMR’s ‘Strange Lands‘ track.
If the original was not already influenced by a strong sense of heavy and sharp beat-work and tempo, then – with the careful craft of MR.BLACK – the remix certainly stamps it home. Focusing on a more main-stage oriented production style, the Israeli producer one-ups the original by masterfully transforming its juggernaut sound and carrying over the Arabic vocal layovers into a episode of unadulterated high energy. As far as styles are concerned, a new one seems to have taken birth in the works of MR.BLACK, who draws from his preceding fellow producers to deliver the crafty sound for the big stages and major labels – the ‘Strange Lands’ remix being a glimpse of that.
