KillaGraham, Chuckie and Dirtyphonics are among the names on the release, which focuses on remixes of ‘Alive’ and ‘Killin’ It’ but also includes a free new song, ‘Come & Get It’ (download the track on Krewella’s Facebook page). The remixes run the gamut, from a well-tailored banger of a rework by EDM pop act Cash Cash and New York DJ and producer Kalkutta to a vocal mix of ‘Killin’ It’ that features Dutch house producer Chuckie.”
