Skrillex‘s introductory record Recess, spawned a number of originals that became inescapable this year. Along with the grip of new Skrillex jams, multiple marquee remixers have stepped up to deliver their own renditions of tracks such as “Ragga Bomb” and “Recess.” Now, GTA‘s metalic, clanging spin on “Ease My Mind” has reached the wire, and the genre-defiant duo’s rework takes a bold stance boasting a wide array of sounds.
“Ease My Mind” has become an emotive closer in live Skrillex sets this past year, and the GTA version has found itself accompanying the original in many of Sonny’s biggest outings of the year. The rework incorporates sharp steel drum punches, allowing Niki and the Dove’s melodic contributions to flow freely over the tightly arranged hi-hat rolls that push the tune onward. Working in accute trap music elements, as well as light additions of dance hall-inspired sounds, GTA makes “Ease My Mind” their own. A love song at its core, GTA’s reimagining of “Ease My Mind” gives the tune a uniquely different vibe, however holds true to the original’s impassioned appeal.
A collection of “Ease My Mind” and “Ragga Bomb” remixes will be officially available via OWSLA on November 24th.
Stream the tune below and enjoy.
Edit: Jai Wolf’s remix of “Ease My Mind” just popped into our feed and it is a track we know Run The Trap readers will appreciate. He takes the track in a different direction turning it into a fantastic trap edit that’ll have your head nodding. Enjoy both of the remixes below and be sure to pick up your copy when they drop on November 24th.
