ZAXX Drops Remix to Franke Single ‘Bad Tattoo’
ZAXX continues his 2018 musical evolution with a mind-bending remix of Franke’s “Bad Tattoo,” out everywhere April 20. The Staten Island based producer stuns in his take on the track by showcasing his impressive ability to leave his own masterful mark on anything. ZAXX’s take on “Bad Tattoo” combines Franke’s punctuating pop vocals with beautiful ambient synths in the first drop. The second drop takes a complete 180 as ZAXX rattles listeners with grimly powerful bass. ZAXX’s “Bad Tattoo” remix is yet another stunning showcase of his musical talents and true versatility as an artist.
After releasing his remix of Cash Cash’s “Jewel” two weeks ago, as well as his remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Sick Boy,” — which the DJs even dropped during their Ultra mainstage closing set — ZAXX continues to prove that he is a real jack of all trades. His ability to rework tracks and leave his lasting personal imprint on them sets ZAXX apart. As we travel through 2018, make sure to keep an eye on ZAXX to find out where he truly belongs.
“When Franke showed me ‘Bad Tattoo,’ I knew that I wanted to take it to a completely different place musically. I took his powerful vocals and added my own synths and booming basslines to take the track into a completely different light. Over all, it was an absolute pleasure to be able to create my own take on a friend like Franke’s song.” – ZAXX
Greg Zaccagnino, the mastermind behind ZAXX, started making music during his early high school years and hasn’t looked back since. By his junior year, ZAXX had his first college tour under his belt. Since then, he’s collaborated with artists like KSHMR, released solo material on Tiesto’s imprint Musical Freedom, and accumulated millions of streams — over 20 million of which come from his remix of The Chainsmokers’ “Roses” alone. During a recent hiatus, ZAXX focused on producing music highlighting his true talents, whether that be producing timeless melodies or singing and writing his own songs. ZAXX’s musical evolution has taken place, and the world is ready to hear. Let’s see where ZAXX belongs.
