Egyptrixx "Phones (Sharkslayer Nassau VIP)"
A couple of Fridays ago, we posted the premiere of the second of Sharkslayer's annual DJ mixes, entitled Dead Men Tell No Tales. The Finnish duo included a few of its own productions within the mix of club-ready tunes heavy with low-end, including this remix of Egyptrixx's (pictured above) "Phones." Rubbery bass melodies, crunchy four-on-the-floor beats, wonky noise explosions, and sparse percussion all work together with precision and tenacity in Sharkslayer's treatment, which is essentially a slightly tweaked, lengthy edit of the tune on all kinds of performance-enhancing and psychotropic drugs.
