It’s been years since anyone’s attempted to remix a Knife Party track, but i_o and No Mana were up to the task…and they delivered. Separately they’re both Techno and Tech House titans, but together they form something special.
For this remix of “Sleaze”, i_o and No Mana do what they’re both best at by sticking to their respective genres. The beginning of the remix starts with those iconic words, “Until they kick us out…” as the lyrics continue to sound glitched and choppy. As the buildup progresses, perfectly placed claps help raise the hype as it comes out banging with a Techno heavy drop. Little touches like the glitch/scratch effects you hear make it easy to recognize where No Mana contributed.
If you still haven’t checked out either of these amazingly talented artists, let this remix be your excuse. Both i_o and No Mana have been making huge waves this year, and we can’t wait to see what comes next from both. Whether it’s together or apart.
