In conjunction with Skrillex and Atlantic Records, Swedish producer Blende has been commissioned to offer his own rendition to “Drop Dead.” Premiered last night on Sirius XM and offered up today as a free download, Blende’s signature cross of hard-hitting electro and funky disco groove is seen throughout the release. Blende has been filling a gap amidst the over saturated electronic music world — transforming Skrillex’s relentless dubstep sound into a relaxed melodic progression. The end result gives it a modern day Daft Punk feel — palatable on all fronts. One thing is abundantly clear: Blende is quickly becoming a standout act amongst his Swedish peers as he continues to champion his eccentric nu-disco sound.
