UZ – Inferno ft Oski & Craze (Machinedrum Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

Travis Stewart, better known as Machinedrum, is a groundbreaking DJ/producer whose manic, break-beat inspired style of bass music has established him as one of the most scintillating and sought after artists in the current landscape of dance music. Recently, Quality Good Music records enlisted Stewart as one of the many artists to feature on an upcoming remix project for UZ‘s Layers LP. Machinedrum completely took off the gloves with his reimagining of UZ’s already raucous track “Inferno.”

In its original iteration, ‘Inferno,’ which features Craze and Oski, trembles with modulated bass growls and wicked rolling hi-hats. True to form, Stewart completely revitalizes “Inferno” with imaginative and aggressive composition. Cacophonous percussive elements collide brazenly with rattling basslines as the remix raises the original banger to another level.

This white-hot remix is ready for download now via Quality Good Records.
