For Alison Wonderland fans, its been a long wait between her EP Run and her latests track with M-Phazes; Messiah. Around two years to be exact. So when Alison dropped Messiah, we couldn't help but listen to it on repeat for days on end. The original track itself is a powerful lyrical ballad highlighting Alison's talented vocals. And just like her entire Run EP, we're sure there will be hundreds and hundreds of remixes, flips, edits etc. of her latest single.
The first notable remix of Messiah we found is a Crankdat VIP Crankdat Re-Crank, a mouthful we know. Little is known of the true identity of Crankdat. Regardless, the DJ puts out a massive amount of remixes, VIPs and Re-Cranks on his soundcloud which has an impressive 72.3K followers. Just about every top 40 EDM track has been ‘Re-Crank'ed here, along with other party hits such as Panda by Desiigner.
The beauty of the original track is its simplicity. This allows for a mass amount of remixes, edits, flips etc. by a variety of artists across just about any genre. This versatility also allows for an ample amount of exposure for both Alison and Messiah, which is most artists goal when creating their own tracks.
Similar to the original, the remix starts off low-key with a melodic bass line and Alison's beautiful vocals. The build begins to differ more from the original with more pop influenced rhythms and synths. The drop its self is where the two tracks completely diverge. Crankdat's take on Messiah is a complex compilation of a variety of synths, drums, bass lines and 808's.
If you like the style of this remix, lucky for you, Crankdat is touring currently. His tours just about over, but check below to see if he's hitting a city near you. Otherwise, we're sure it's only a matter of time before her premiers his next ‘crank'.
