Australian producer AXEN is on the rise! He has been on a solid roll as of late and was included in the InTheMix’s list of the ‘The New Breed – Top 10 Producers You Need to Hear.’ On top of that, he was also asked by Flux Pavilion to do a remix of his track ‘Feel Your Love’ with NGHTMRE. AXEN dominates the bass music scene even more in 2020 and made his first move by releasing a remix of Herobust’s hard-hitting track, ‘Smoke.’ He now dropped his special droid bass remix of Daft Punk’s extremely popular and iconic song, ‘Television Rules the Nation.’ This remix depicts his vision of what the French duo would sound like if they opted for a darker electronic music style and stated:
“Daft Punk was the first electronic artists I discovered that got me into music production, I feel that I created an accurate representation of what Daft Punk would sound like if it was built around this darker electronic style.”
AXEN infuses the bass with jaunty energy in his remix of Daft Punk’s ‘Television Rules the Nation’. This remix is more bass-driven than any of his previous releases. In this track, he flips the traditional rhythms, and bass patterns in such a way that it wraps neatly around itself. The effect is tautly controlled with vehemence, and builds progressively with an oblique synth riff. The suspenseful hook loops around a drop that comes, ultimately, but not necessarily in the way you’d expect. The pulsating bass works around claustrophobic clicks and vocal repetition.
AXEN’s remix of Daft Punk’s classic ‘Television Rules the Nation’ features irrepressible synth lines that intertwine themselves around energetic bass patterns. This makes the track the one you would like to hear at peak time in a DJ set. We have AXEN’s new midtempo bass banger on repeat and we can’t get enough of it.
