If you were to plan world domination, starting with music influence would be smart. RAAKMO seems to be foreshadowing; his latest collab Take Over with an artist named Gl0bal? Maybe only obvious to some. Working together last year on their track Slept On ft Malcolm Flex following the Pazuzu EP, seems they been plotting for a while, as their style certainly got heavier and production quality got cleaner. RAAKMO also worked with Porn & Chicken recently releasing Get Back. Gearing up for festival season crowds, tracks like these will cause a ruckus!
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!
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.
