One of the best electronic music events I have ever been to – actually it was quite possibly THE best, even though it was only my second – was Hard Haunted Mansion 2008 in Los Angeles, CA. Imagine just starting your venture into electro house, then having a night where 2 Many DJs (aka Soulwax) were spinning “E Talking” when you walked in, Crookers “Thunderstruck” you, and Deadmau5 first dropped “Ghosts ‘N Stuff” before a live audience. Today, ProtoypeRaptor delivers a stunning remix of Soulwax’s “Krack”, taking me back to that fateful Halloween four years ago. The track detours from the Raptor’s usual set of weapons, featuring a slower BPM and smorgasbord of glitch elements. This slightly calmer release may be a little less untz but it is just as packed with flavor, and definitely pays tribute to the original. If we are lucky, this is just a taste of the variety and talent we will be hearing in his new album, which apparently will be released by the end of the year. Stay tuned for more information on his release, and more shows (he has one in Salt Lake City tomorrow), by checking out his Facebook.
