Alex Di Stefano, Zach Zlov & EverLight Unleash ‘The Art of Skullduggery Vol. III’



Out with what is undoubtably the most monstrous mix compilation of the year thus far, Alex Di Stefano, Zach Zlov and EverLight have unleashed The Art of Skullduggery Vol.III. Featuring an extraordinary 58 songs, this mega soundtrack clocks in at just under four hours.

Over that course of the journey you’ll find new audio dynamite from Cold Blue, Activa, Chris Schweizer, Solarstone, Stoneface & Terminal and dozens upon dozens of others of both new & established.    

First to the Vol. III is Alex Di Stefano, and while the Italian’s showcased some tougher mettle previously, you’ve never heard anything quite like this. Firing its starting gun are ‘Out Of Order’ & ‘ORKA’ from David Forbes, while the tellingly-titled ‘Weather The Storm’ & ‘Fight For Your Right’, courtesy of Renegade System and Kriess Guyte further up its frontend thunder. Deeper in, Alex is joined by label honcho Greg for ‘Among Us’ (Chris Schweizer on the mix), while his own powerful reworks of Solarstone’s ‘Seven Cities’ and ‘Shine’ by Cold Blue build an unstoppable head of pressure for the mix.
A man with something to prove perhaps, Zach Zlov – Skullduggery’s newest newcomer, weighs in with no less than ten of his own productions. Representing a full half of his mix, inside the first eight tracks alone, he drops new, desk-hot studioware including ‘Starborn’, ‘Into The Jungle’, ‘Ergo’, ‘Chemicals’ & ‘Nightfall’. Having played fast & loose inside the Psy, Breaks & Tech-Trance triangle, he expands its stylistic themes further with a deuce from Hassan Jewel and ‘Digital Deaf Tones’ from Zlov’s own mentor, Enrique Calvetty. Activa pres Mekk V’s ‘Rotation’ and Beatman & Ludmilla’s ‘Terrible’ are next to the laser, before Zach signs off with the flourish of his own ‘Noviembre’.
In one of his first mix-comp showings, EverLight also brings plenty of his own brew to the Vol. III party. ‘Renegade Bass’ and ‘100%’ (w/Tasso) provides the sandwich for the tech filling of Ed Lynam’s ‘Catecholamine’, as the masked wonder puts both hands to the mix’s pump. ‘Dangerous’, ‘Raucous’ and ‘Razor Blade’ are title-and-description as one, as the UK DJ gets ungodly on its midsection. With his remix of Greg Downey’s ‘Sense’, he draws down a touch, only however to allow the full weight of ‘What A Rush’ from Kriess Guyte and Blashear’s ‘Future Self’ to exact maximum set-closing damage.
