New Jersey’s Aylen is a colossal talent in the U.S. EDM machine who routinely impresses dance music crowds with his pedal-to-the-metal remixes. In years past, the young producer has put his flourishes on tracks by Duke Dumont, Coldplay, and Tchami and has seen releases on Hysteria and Liftoff Recordings.
His newest work, a remix of Montell Jordan’s classic 90’s hitÂ Get It On Tonite, carries Aylen into uncharted waters and could possibly establish his skills in new sub genres of dance music. Marking a slight sidestep away from the more aggressive electro sound he’s perfected for festival stages in the past, Aylen focuses on a lighter, UK grime infused deep house sound which meshes incredibly well with his signature electro stabs and progressive backbeat before eventually making way for a cycling vocal sample that adds an air of ambience. And while it’s clear that 90’s jams are making a strong comeback, the young New Jersey producer manages to re-purpose this throwback into something both modern and satisfying without losing his identity which can be a remarkably difficult task in and of itself.
