KRANE & Alexander Lewis redefine ‘Onset’


There’s always been this common practice of how remixers go about wanting to remix something- like it’s a measure of the original artist and their reputation, or how hyped up they are at the moment. I really just wanted to move away from that and hopefully do justice to something I found to be really special and different.

Sinjin Hawke‘s debut album, First Opus, has attracted many eyes (and ears) since its release – including the likes of Alexander Lewis and KRANE, who pay homage to one of the album’s biggest songs.

Whereas the original has more of a retro-trap-hybrid feel to it, this verison decides to go full trap. It takes things a bit slower, and delivers an amplified sense of triumph, which adds nicely to the trumpet fanfare heard throughout. What really makes the song stand out is its explosive moment near the end, where it reaches for the skies with its high-hitting synths and heavenly melody. ‘Onset’ is available for download – if you haven’t started your summer compilation, this would be a grand way to kick things off!
