Nina Las Vegas takes on Machinedrum with new remix
MACHINEDRUM‘s techy tune ‘Angel Speak’ has been granted a hyperactive remix by none other than NINA LAS VEGAS. One of the most prominent personalities in the Australian music industry, Nina has been working on a plethora of exciting and innovative projects. One of these being NLV Records, the artist’s very own newfound record label. Still in its infancy and already fostering a multitude of electronic talent, NLV will certainly be pushing out a number of dynamic tastemakers.
Amongst the hype and hard work, Nina Las Vegas has stuck to her guns and dropped a remix of Machinedrum‘s ‘Angel Speak’, no doubt a track for the dirty dance floors.
The beats are not beats, they are rousing thuds. And the drops are not drops, they are absolute explosions. The song is packed with vehement character. Featuring MeLo-X, Machinedrum‘s original tune is a buzzing concoction of heightening anticipation. But for the remix, instead Nina opts less for escalation and more for an upfront gift of eruption. The track has no chill, what feels like thousands of small sounds amplify together, leaving three minutes of enterprising electro sounds.
Nina’s own musicianship is rampant, elevating the track in her own direction, ‘Angel Speak’ sounds less heavenly and more hellishly exciting.
