Berlin’s TRAILS is a bit of a wildcard when it comes to what he’ll produce next. His sound tends to sit cozy in the tropical/future bass end of the 2017 dance music spectrum. You’ll understand my surprise when the last TRAILS release to hit my inbox came completely out of left field.
It was a remix of Starset’s rock ballad “Satellite.” Instead of going the expected TRAILS route, the Berlin artist amplified the guitar and distortion. Much like the “lost on a red planet” narrative of the music video, this remix embodies the trials and tribulations of an astronaut long from home. Exciting, stress-inducing, powerful. This remix blew me away with the power of a 100-story sandstorm.
