Having enjoyed a meteoric rise like no other before him, masked mogul Marshmello sits firmly at the forefront of dance music today, becoming the posterboy for the current crop of the booming electronic music generation.
Now, his hit new track ‘Silence’, which is currently sitting top 20 in the UK charts and top 10 in the iTunes, is given the remix treatment, with Illenium, SUMR Camp, Slushii, and dance legend Tiësto all delivering their own interpretations of the huge Khalid collaboration, ahead of Marshmello’s sold-out headline show at Brixton Academy on 21st October.
Bringing horns and a big room feel to the piece, Tiësto utilises his decades of production prowess to craft looping vocals, and a thumping drop, before San Francisco-based producer Illenium produces a contrasting melancholic reworking, which brings a powerful and emotive feel to 19 year old singer-songwriter Khalid’s smooth vocals. Bringing deep house elements to his first ever official release, mysterious producer SUMR Camp shines, displaying a groovy bass-led beat, with Marshmello’s good friend Slushii lacing his own remix with his signature trap sound. The American, who has previously worked with the likes of Ookay, and Mello himself on collaborative track ‘Twinbow’ after catching the attention of OWLSA boss Skrillex, will also play as a support act for Marshmello at the Brixton Academy show on 21st October.
