Spring is upon us. Temperatures are rising. Fall 2021 lineups are dropping. Our parents and grandparents are getting vaccinated. Is that hope we feel in the air? Yes indeed.
On Wednesday (March 31), the one and only Skream adds just a bit more brightness to the collective vibe with his edit of Claptone’s “Zero,” a tech house anthem the masked German producer dropped earlier this month.
On his edit, Skream puts the scintillating percussion and bouncing bass line of the original on the back burner, and instead drenches the production with shimmering synths, adding an effervescent progressive sound that trades Claptone’s carnival mood with one more ethereal. (Think heady sunrise vibes, versus peak-hour revelry.)
Premiering below exclusively on Billboard Dance, the edit is out everywhere Thursday (April 1) via London’s Different Recordings. The remix package also includes a rework from Chicago house icon Gene Ferris.
