RAAKMO Beats Get Evil

Personification is used in a countless amount of ways in music, religions and other mediums to express and understand ourselves and the world. Pauzu is not only the latest EP by RAAKMO but the name is also that of an evil spirit of wind that causes famine and protects from other evil spirits ironically. The song reflecting the EP’s title starts off with a familiar melody that generally brings shivers down anyones spine. From the original Exorcist, Pazuzu was though to be the demon possessing poor little Regan MacNeil. For others the name is recognizable as Professor Farnsworth magic dragon in Futurama.

Anyway the 2 track EP holds up to the Hardest Music In Chicago motto RAAKMO has in place. On the second track Carnage, VOVIII hops on production for a collaboration. The two sample the legendary “Blast, Beat, Go” recording by Nari and Milani‘s Atom to lead into heavy hardstyle beat upon a melodic buildup. Pazuzu follows an Avicii remixChupacabra, The Galaxy and Rich Chigga. With bass scarier than the demon itself, this EP is a must have for you sets!

RAAKMO Fades Into Darkness [Free Download]

Many artists had their try at remixing this Avicii‘s Fade Into Darkness house anthem, it was time we got a proper hardstyle remix. Who better than Chicago’s heavy hitting bass head RAAKMO. With Brennan Heart and Timekeeperz remixes standing opposed our heart goes to Chicago. Keeping energy alive from beginning to end balancing heavy bass, synth and vocals evenly. If you were smart you coulda heard it first at evilOlive taking over the backroom with Kyral x Banko.

This track follows a few early summer remixes. Highlighting his diverse portfolio of artists to apply his style to. Previous remixes dealt with hip hop, trap and heavy bass influences. Avicii has more pop appeal and its good to see RAAKMO work his way around it without compromising his style. The track is free so add this gem to your hardstyle playlsit!

RAAKMO Turns Day To Night with these Remixes

Claiming to have the “Hardest Music in Chicago”, we would like to see anyone step up to the plate. You cannot go harder than Hardstyle, and RAAKMO is credited with some the best to come out of the city. Invited to some of the most wild parties such as Porn and Chicken Monday Night Dance Party, why? Just take a listen to his recent series of remixes.

Now RAAKMO typically leans towards Hardstyle but what makes any good artist is to blend style and make your own. His Rich Chigga remix has a trap bass foundation to it but you can clearly hear his hardstyle influence.  Just as well with his Turn Day Turn Night remix with VOVIII.  RAAKMO has an interesting Hardstyle infused trap formula and it works well with his collaborators. With Keku however they two stuck to hardstyle with they remix of Chupacabra by Carnage.
