One of my favorite releases in the last couple of months was “Reason” by Nervo and Hook N Sling. There haven’t been too many vocal tracks that I absolutely loved with a passion, but this one is undeniably great. The lyrics struck a chord with me and I couldn’t resist singing along every time it came on in my car. Also, this was one track that I hadn’t heard any remixes of… until now.
Sevag, a resident at Mister East nightclub in Roselle, NJ, has been popping up non-stop in my news feed since I first found out about this talented artist early last year. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing him spin on several occasions; most notably his massive five-hour set at Surf Club opening for Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano in August. “Incredible” is an understatement to the skills that Sevag has in the DJ booth.
On behalf of EDMNYC, I’m honored to present the debut release and free download link for the Sevag remix of “Reason”. This remix is really great because it changes the whole vibe of the track and makes it a heavy-hitting dance floor progressive banger. The catchy pop vocal elements are diminished with new chords and a driving kick that will make the whole club shake, for sure. The highlight of this remix, for me, is at the four minute mark when we get a hard beat with a sprinkle of the vocal looped over the killer synths Sevag created.
There are so many times when I hear remixes of tracks and don’t like them because the elements I love in the original are gone, however, this is definitely not the case. Sevag took one of my favorite tracks and made it so much better, which is totally impressive and completely commendable. If this banging remix is a sign of what’s to come from Sevag in 2013, I think it would be safe to say that this year belongs to him, and I can’t wait to see what else he’ll give us in the upcoming months ahead.
If you haven’t had the privilege of hearing Sevag spin yet, head over to Mister East every Saturday night for an amazing time that you’ll be telling all of your friends about. And of course, be sure to check out Sevag on his social media sites below:
