With a title like “Quiet Riot,” there’s room for confusion. Is the artist referring to a normally boisterous uproar that in this case is completely silent, or simply paying tribute to the ubiquitous metal band of the same name. Regardless, we like what MSD & Jillian Ann crafted with their momentous anthem.
First up was the original, then the Pegboard Nerd’s version, and now our eardrums have been titillated with an entirely fresh take by Keeno, and it’s bigger than big. The Winchester-based producer flips “Quiet Riot” completely upside down, retaining Jillian Ann’s haunting vocals while pumping the tune full of fervor-inducing instrumentations. A breathtaking blend between drum ‘n’ bass and dubstep serves as the track’s cornerstone, shifting tempos throughout with the grace and ease of a trapeze walker.
Keeno’s remix of “Quiet Riot” is absolutely volcanic, further cementing his unstoppable ascension in the world of bass music. Remove your eyes from the strikingly sexy cover art, and let your ears to the work. Well, unless you can of course multi task.
