Xavi showcases his melodic take on remix for Ophelia classic 'Shadows'

Ophelia drops a remix pack for an already established melodic anthem of 2021 produced by Seven Lions, Wooli, and Amidy.


The Filthy Beat Inspectors are always listening and on the look out for the latest heavy-hitting beats in the bass music community. Recently, the walls of our departments have been housing agents who are always on the lookout for something more...something different.


Maintaining their high level of prominence amongst the music community, Ophelia Records has released a remix pack for 'Shadows', one of the hardest-hitting tracks of 2021 thus far. Combining the melodic genius of Seven Lions, the heavy real riddim by Wooli and the angelic voice of Amidy, the growth of such a track truly requires many different takes.



The remix pack features heavy trace hitter Maor Levi, genre-bending Ophelia act Xavi and U.S. drum and bass champion REAPER.

Without any intention of taking away from the other remix pieces, this article is mainly meant to highlight the Xavi take on the original.

 

The Xavi project has provided nothing but the best of ethereal-like originals as well as remixes that provide the same emotional reactions. With every form of composition, Xavi draws feelings of pure happiness and euphoria amongst listeners that simultaneously inspire his work. This remix he produced takes the melodic tempo of the original track and adds an electronica-esque beat that is the textbook definition of 'in your face'.


Following the initial buildup and intense first drop into satisfactory melodic mayhem, the second drop is an ode to old-school trance as described.


"I used this as an opportunity to create something that is heavily influenced by trance, but is still my own style and sound” - Xavi (Ophelia Records)

No stranger to the Filthy Beat Inspectors, Xavi leaves us craving more and waiting to see what the near future has in store for this bright producer. Check out the remix pack below, including a Maor Levi extended mix version as well.



Even the music video for this remix takes listeners to a landscape which provides the perfect setting when paired with every emotion drawn from simply listening to the track itself. Be prepared to hit the replay button a million and one times...



Stay tuned for more from our team of news reporters and the rest of Dubstep FBI!
