Eptic - The End (Mayor West Remix)

If you've never heard Eptic's "The End," I don't know how you found this blog, it's got to be one of the most played and remixed tracks in the last two years. There's Breaux's multiple remixes with Carnage, his own VIP and a Crankdat VIP among others, but yesterday another new version dropped. Germany's Mayor West gives "The End" another trap flip, reminding me of the days when trap was just becoming a thing. While the unmistakable Eptic chord progression continues to run the show, this version is driven mainly by simple yet super strong trap percussion. Mayor West relies on a hauntingly, stripped back atmosphere before getting bleepy with touches of hardstyle, which was instrumental in the trap sound when it was first on the rise (see early Flosstradamus). There's no discounting the other versions of "The End," but this may be my favourite take on it yet. Download it for free via Artist Engine here. FOLLOW EPTIC: FACEBOOK SOUNDCLOUD TWITTER
