Kx5 – ‘Escape (Spencer Brown Remix)’
“As a teenager, deadmau5 and Kaskade were two pioneers that got me into dance music. ‘I Remember’ was one of the tracks that changed everything for me in high school. Fast forward a decade and I was absolutely honored to be asked to remix ‘Escape’. I spent months working and submitted the final product. Rejected. Feeling down, I whipped up another from scratch while touring. Rejected. Last shot. I booked a flight home with the intention of making a harder-edged version for my sets. 16 hours of work later, the third attempt was born. The next thing I know, one of the hardest to please (deadmau5) was thrilled with it. So much so that he plays it in all of his sets, including the Kx5 debut with Kaskade at EDC. What an honor! Taking a step back, the remix proves that when you fail, sometimes it’s meant to be. This is one of my favorite productions I’ve made in my career. If I gave up after the first two attempts, it wouldn’t exist. The track has been a mega-bomb in my own sets and I can’t wait for the world to hear it.”— Spencer Brown

Dark Heart – ‘Get Down Low (feat. Mia Marvelous)’
“I grew up listening to the original Freak Nasty version of ‘Da’ Dip’, and as I started making music, I always knew I had to flip this one.
