Having dropped some major mashups and edits in the past couple of years, most notably his recent trap and hardstyle hybrid festival edit of ‘Antidote’, Zan Monic returns with another sick festival edit. This time blending ‘Sicko Mode’ and ‘Riverside’ together, Zan Monic delivers with a peak time energetic anthem that showcases once again the talents and diversity that he holds.
The tone and vibe for this edit is set right from the start as a high tempo and banging drums are introduced. After the intro, Zan Monic introduces both of the main samples as they play side by side with Zan Monic building tension for the drop. The drop comes and it blows us away, with a pulsating offbeat bassline shaking our speakers as thumping drums move the rhythm along. As if this edit couldn’t get any better, Zan Monic flips it on its head for the second drop, going for a more thumping hardstyle drop before heading back to what made the first drop special.
