Skrillex Feat. Sirah – Bangarang (Cryptex Reglitcharang)
LA beat-slicer Cryptex is at it again, this time with a chopped and sliced mashup remix of the title track from Skrillex’s brand new EP, “Bangerang”. The original clocks in at a stomping 110 BPM, right in the heart of Cryptex’s midtempo realm. Syncopated cuts quickly morph from twisting snares to a familiar step, all the way retaining the high energy of the original. A few splashes of flavor come in the form of melodic bits from acclaimed Skrillex classics, serving to keep up the variation that Cryptex brings to the table.
Hailing from Los Angeles, CA, Cryptex is an 18-year-old
glitch hop producer whose dense rhythms and evocative electronic
music have earned wide acclaim and dedicated followers in a remarkably
brief period of time.
The son of two radio industry professionals, Cryptex grew
up listening to hip hop and pop, and discovered glitch hop when
at a young age after moving to L.A. to pursue acting. He was drawn to the
genre’s unlimited potential to express emotion and relay a story,
especially the unique, post-digital edginess of glitch music. After
listening to everything he could find, he began producing his own
remixes and original songs, and found there was no turning back.
With strong influences from groups like the Glitch Mob,
Cryptex is captivated by the endless variety of sounds that can be
created. It’s a truly limitless palette, where he can turn the
familiar into the unknown, change the past into the contemporary, and
transform the unwanted into the irresistible. Combined with an amazing
rhythmic complexity, Cryptex’s music never fails to be intriguing,
surprising, and exhilarating.
