California-based duo Two Owls have made major strides in 2017 with a full rebrand, numerous releases and festivals across the country. Combining trap, dub and future style production, the duo is the full package, refusing to be constrained by genres. Their hit single “Waking Up The Dead” featuring Elle Zee pays testament to their more melodic style, combining rhythmic synths with Zee’s haunting vocal quality for an upbeat future style track. Now they’ve teamed with some of their favorite up and comers to take their own spin on the track.
Teaming with AWAL, Blacklist, Clips X Ahoy, Fransis Derelle and Harley Knox for 5 sensational recreations of the track, the remix EP is filled with surprises.
From AWAL’s heavy dub flip to Blacklist’s experimental trap style, bass fans will be headbanging while swaying to the original vocal, while Fransis Derelle and Harley Knox tie more into the future style production for a more upbeat tone. Ending the remix EP with Clips X Ahoy’s flip featuring trap centric production and haunting verses, the 5 track compilation adequately represents Two Owl’s own motto of never sticking to just one sound or style.
