Steve Angello seems to have undergone some sort of musical identity crisis in his post-Swedish House Mafia years. Far be it from us to glorify whatever mental anguish might be coloring the SIZE Records founder’s recent releases, but to be honest, we kind of hope he doesn’t recover from it anytime soon.
Angello and label mate AN21’s remix of Susanne Sundfør’s “Kamikaze” is definitely dance music, but it’s a unique sound in and of itself. With arpeggiated moog synths and artfully arranged vocal samples, the sound of the track is almost reminiscent of French electro duo Justice – but with an even stronger rock music influence. Alongside his other recent releases like “Children of the Wild,” the song makes us hopeful that the EDM icon could redefine dance music in a novel way once more.
