Back a few years ago, 3LAU cemented himself as one of the premiere mashup producers in the world, captivating listeners with bold blends of the day's greatest hits. Over the last year, however, Justin Blau has come into his own by releasing praiseworthy originals, like "Escape", "How You Love Me", and the epic "Vikings" with Botnek. Taking this journey to new heights, 3LAU sees his track, "Bang", bootlegged by the legendary Dutch artist Tiesto. Back in October 2013, Blau sent the instrumental version to the dance maestro who thought to twist the track with a bit of a throwback. In that vein, "Bang" touches on a mashup past by layering The Bloodhound Gang's unforgettable lyrics on top of varied electro house phrases, giving the song the feel of different tracks woven together into one.
