Xavi, REAPER, and Maor Levi have all offered a unique take on the bass anthem.
The remix EP features longtime Ophelia Records favorite Xavi as well as drum & bass guru REAPER and trance vet Maor Levi. Each producer offers a unique take on “Shadows,” infusing the melodic bass anthem with a diverse sound palette.
Xavi’s remix maintains the heaviest feel of the trio released in the EP, as the impassioned sonics of the original have been replaced by a rumbling bassline. REAPER holds nothing back on his edit, similarly taking a heavy route. Amidy’s vocals remain the focal point leading into a dramatic, eerie breakdown followed by relentless drum & bass and halftime drops.
The final remix by Levi is by far the most divergent of the three remixes, bravely venturing away from the bass music and into Levi’s home of trance. The heaviness hasn’t been abandoned, however, as the track opens with an onslaught of menacing bass patches. The climactic drop holds out until the final third of the track, turning the ballad into a tense nail-biter.
