I’m not going to lie, I’m pretty skeptical of Taylor Swift remixes. Actually, I’m pretty skeptical of most Top 40 remixes in general. It takes a special touch to take a track that the radio’s played over and over again and make it something worth listening to on another level. That being said, however, when a remix of Swift’s hit “Blank Space” popped up on my Facebook feed courtesy of local producer, Ryan Kenton, I had to give it a listen. And I’m glad I did. Kenton blends the expected electro-pop vibes throughout the intro, and the first hard hitting, festival style drop not only catches the listener completely off guard, but immediately takes the track to that new level that I mentioned above.
Consider this your proper introduction to Mr. Kenton, and join me in hoping that he continues to progress with his production skills and put out more pieces like this. In the meantime, enjoy the track above and grab the free download below.
