Cosmic Gate Releases New Single “Crushed”

With “Storm Chaser” – their first single since the release of Wake Your Mind – still raising big room temperatures globally, EDM cosmonauts Nic Chagall and Bossi are poised to send the Fahrenheit flying again. See what I did there? “Crushed” quickly became a set-request standing order for crowds at Cosmic Gate gigs. Now, with its anthem credentials already well advanced, its long awaited official release is close at hand.

Beating the remix path for the track, Comic Gate have handed the keys from “Crushed” to underground Dutch heroes Rafaël Frost and Mark Sixma.

Premiered on “Corsten’s Countdown 313,” Frost crushes in both harmonic shades and electro aspects to the frontend of his version. He builds the boom-factor with big concussive tech-trance sequences; allows the pitch wheel to climb high-rise high, and with a final flourish serves “Crushed”‘s big stabbed anthemic mainline.

Armin van Buuren meanwhile has been all over the Mark Sixma’s mix, champing it on “ASOT618” and “619.” Sixma super-charges his rework with striking rimshot percussion, festival-revving EDM FX and some seismic bass and drums. The Tilburg-based producer masterfully sets up “Crushed” harmonic/euphoric interchange with some crowd-flaming modulation lines, pulling off a dazzling, head-spin top-of-the-drop moment.

Full disclosure: your speakers might never be quite the same again!
