Fresh off the heels of his massive North American Babylon tour, Canadian wunderkind Ekali is blessing us with the fourth installment in his own Awakening mix series. Diverging from his last installment in the series, Ekali decided to go quite a bit heavier with this one, stating via Twitter that Awakening 4 “a lot more hype than two and three. even one.” The hype for this Awakening mix has been real, with fans clamoring on social media for a release date. Thankfully, the wait was well worth it.
Notable parts of the mix include the world debut of the massive NGHTMRE remix of Ekali’s collaboration with ZHU ‘Blame’, as well as an unreleased Habstrakt ID. Rising dubstep star TYNAN is prominently featured with both a new track ID, as well as his flip of the iconic ‘Deep Down Low’ by Valentino Khan. Another personal favorite up-and-comer of mine, Just A Gent, also has two tracks featured in the mix. First is his new insane genre-defying release ‘404’, and his remix of Illenium’s ‘Fortress,’ which was the closing track of the mix. It’s safe to say Ekali keeps an eye out for new talent and wants to use his platform to promote them.
Awakening Mix 4 will definitely pump you up for the week. We’ll be having this one on repeat for awhile. Stream the mix below!
