Kayzo’s rock-electronic crossover sound is exactly what “First Time” needed.
Kayzo has been on a tear in 2021. The Houston-born producer recently released his collaboration with Sullivan King and Papa Roach, “DOMINATION,” as well as “Never Let You Down” with TELLE and “Lifeline” with Black Tiger Sex Machine. Today, he returns with a remix of ILLENIUM and iann dior‘s “First Time.”
Kayzo’s rework of “First Time” reimagines the love ballad by embracing his signature rock-electronic crossover sound. Forgoing the piano of the original, Kayzo has opted for a subtle guitar in the intro. As the track builds to the drop, listeners are hit with a more intense guitar riff all accompanied by dior’s emotive vocals. The second drop adds a layer of heavy, distorted synths, drastically increasing the intensity.
Kayzo’s remix fits perfectly alongside that of Sam Feldt and Goodboys, both of which released earlier this year.
