It’s easy to see why The Weeknd’s third album, “Starboy,” is taking the music community by storm. Not the least of which is the Canadian’s smooth and stunning vocal prowess. That sound reigns supreme on the record known as “Rockin;” the subject of a powerful remix from Swedish icon, Marcus Schössow.
Originally a vibed-out R&B record with an instrumental that almost borders on today’s future bass trend, Marcus Schössow imparts his trademark abilities to turn “Rockin” into a house thoroughbred that commands respect on the dancefloor. Rolling synths and artful percussion serve as the perfect companions to a voice that fans instantly recognize.
Marcus Schössow has been synonymous with house music for many years now. His endeavors have included many releases on the world’s most famous record labels including Axwell’s Axtone Records and Sebastian Ingrosso’s Refune Music. He is the man in charge of Code Red Music, a record label, blog, radio show and community where artists and fans get together to enjoy house music.
