Sullivan King Drops Massive Remix Album Featuring Blanke, Kompany & more + Exclusive Q&A With Remixers

Since initiating his project in 2014, Sullivan King has risen to prominence as a prominent figure in heavy metal and bass music. Particularly noteworthy is his album Thrones Of Blood, introduced from this past March, which has garnered an impressive 40 million streams to date. Now, King is further intertwining these realms by unveiling his massive remix album, Overthrown (The Thrones of Blood Remix Album).

As expected, it’s loaded with a roster of heavy hitters, including Blanke, Kompany, LAYZ, Jessica Audiffred, and plenty of others. This may be one of the most high energy releases of the year, guaranteed to make head bang the whole way though!

A few standouts include Kompany’s flip of King and Kai Wachi’s anthem “Riot.” Using King’s vocal screams to build a wave of energy, that wave comes crashing down when Kompany unleashes an absolutely monstrous drop. Jessica Audiffred’s remix to “The Death March” is of epic proportions – feeling like the perfect main stage track for a festival like Excision’s Paradise Blue.

We’re thrilled to provide you with an exclusive Q&A with six of the remixers (Blanke, Kompany, SIPPY, Chime, GHENGAR, and LOUIEJAYXX) about who takes the throne in bass music. Each artist dove into their top festival, artist, and song across bass music, each providing a quote for their remix as well. Check it out below!

Sullivan King – “End of Us” (Chime Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

Rampage! The variety of genres and cultures that are collected at Rampage and its Open Air events cannot be matched.

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

Au5. Honestly one of the most under-appreciated artists in our scene with a ridiculous catalog of quality and widely varied music. Also, one of my absolute favorite people I have worked with in the industry.

What song takes the throne in bass music?

For this, I will have to pick the most quintessential dubstep track – the one that just does everything I want from the genre. For me, it is Skrillex’s “Right In.”

QUOTE: “For this remix, I wanted to take Color Bass as far over to the heavy side as possible to prove the range of the sub-genre. A melodic Sullivan King track proved the perfect base to make that happen.”

Sullivan King – “Someone Else” (Blanke Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

Lost Lands is the obvious choice here. An absolutely chaotic weekend with all the best artists in bass music getting to play, hang out, and run amok for three days. Because it is so focused on bass music, Lost Lands is awesome to see so many underground artists getting a stage to play on. The guys who usually get the open slots are suddenly playing massive stages at a festival and it is incredible. They have also gotten around to pushing Drum n’ Bass in recent times too, which is huge. 

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

Overall, Skrillex. He has legitimately surpassed any boundary, genre or otherwise, therefore showing that his taste is above all else. He has arguably done more for bass music than anyone else. But as a producer, Space Laces takes the throne as being one of the most influential and inspiring acts solely in bass music. One of the few artists that make other artists want to quit producing out of awe because we do not know how he made this sound or made that groove feel so swaggy, or this mixdown so clean. 

What song takes the throne in bass music?

“Bonfire” by Knife Party. 

QUOTE “Absolutely loved creating this remix for ‘Someone Else.’ I really enjoyed the song after hearing it on tour with Sullivan King a bunch, and was super excited when Keaton asked me to remix it. Being one of the heaviest remixes, in fact, releases I have ever done altogether, I was able to have so much fun writing it. Each drop is its own thing, truly going on a journey with the production and the song overall.”

Sullivan King & Kai Wachi – “Riot” (Kompany Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

Lost Lands – they manage to step their game up every year.

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

Impossible to narrow it down to one person, but my personal favorites have to be Svdden Death and Subtronics.

What song takes the throne in bass music?

That new SVDDEN Death and Marauda ID. I am so excited for that one to drop!

QUOTE: The ‘Riot’ remix was a fun one for me because I got to channel a bunch of aggression into this track to fit the vibe of the original. Also, I had a bunch of fun slowing down the 2nd drop to make something perfect for a circle pit!”

Sullivan King – “Watch The Crown Fall” (SIPPY Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

For me, when it comes to bass music, nothing quite beats Lost Lands. It is named Dubstep Disneyland for good reason. The sense of community that it brings from both an artist and festival-goers is unlike any other for bass music.

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

There are so many that I could put as #1! And there are definitely two fighting for the top spot. But I think the ones that I will put as #1 have to be Zeds Dead. They are one of the reasons why I am here in bass music and I think they have managed to encapsulate the essence of “bass music” over a variety of different sub-genres whilst still keeping true to bass music.  

What song takes the throne in bass music?

My #1 for the song that takes the throne comes from a little left field. “Bring It Down” by Emalkay. This song always gets me hyped. It is from 2012 so really takes me back to the period of time when I was really getting into bass music. It feels like the perfect track that reminds me of why I fell in love with bass music.

QUOTE: “I loved working on this remix! The guitar solo in particular hits me in my feels every single time. It gets me so hype! Writing it just kind of fell together for me; it happened so naturally. So much so that I considered changing it, but once I played it live and saw everyone’s reaction, I realized that this was meant to be! I love playing it in sets and love where I took the original.”

Sullivan King & Excision – “Fall Apart” (GHENGAR Remix)

The best artists are the DMT elves who grant us access to the Akashic records.

The best song in bass music is every GHENGAR song playing at the same time! 

QUOTE

“Sullivan King and I have been friends for nearly 10 years and I have been a fan of Excision since 2011, so to do a remix for them, especially one with such a big and colorful melody, was extremely fun. I feel like I got to experiment a lot with this track, and I am really happy with how it came out!”

Sullivan King, Vastive, & Left to Suffer – “Die By My Hand” (LOUIEJAYXX Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

It would have to be Lost Lands! The overall experience of the festival alone is what takes the throne! The fact that it is not only limited to bass music but features a variety of other electronic music is what helps make it one of the best out there.

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

Subtronics. From his unique sound, to his energetic sets, to the movement he’s created is what allows him to take the throne! 

What song takes the throne in bass music?

A song in our opinion that takes the throne in bass music is “Rumble” by Excision and Space Laces! It takes the throne because of the impact it has had on the culture. Everything about this track to us is perfect. It is definitely a reason why they are some big inspirations for people all around. Everyone already expects something big is about to take place when it starts building up. That is how much impact the song has in the scene!

Road Dog Anthem (Benda Remix)

Lost Lands holds the throne of the best festival in bass music , there really isn’t anything better than dubstep disneyland with all your favorite homies and artists 

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

For the throne of bass music i have to give it to the big boss Excision. From putting countless of underground artists on absolutely huge lineups to putting on some of the craziest festivals – the guy really helps push dubstep to more and more ears each and every year!   

What song takes the throne in bass music?

Currently I think ityx – goober holds the throne! been one of my favorite tunes to play out in my recent sets !! 

“Someone Else” (Bossfight Remix)

What festival takes the throne in bass music?

As a European, I have to go with Rampage. Since Dubstep is so underrepresented here, it’s like magic whenever they host one of their massive events.  

What artist takes the throne in bass music?

Space Laces without a doubt. He’s been, and still is one of the leading innovative forces in almost every aspect for a long time. I’m highly convinced bass music, and especially dubstep, wouldn’t sound the same without him.

What song takes the throne in bass music?

Rumble by Space Laces and Excision. To me, it’s the perfect track. It’s heavy, incredibly memorable, and perfectly mixed and produced.
