Swedish House Mafia – Save The World (Sullivan King Cover)

On March 1, 2019 by ocedm

Listening to Sullivan King’s take on “Save The World” by Swedish House Mafia for the first time caught me completely flat footed. Although prior songs of his from last year like “Wake Up” and “Fight Through The Pain” from Excision’s album “Apex” and “Shake The Ground” with Snails and Jonah Kay should have prepared me for what I was about to hear, it still put my jaw on the floor. Keaton Prescott expertly fuses rock and dubstep together in the iconic SHM song from 2011, a sound which he started producing and calls metalstep. The Los Angeles based DJ and producer self released his version on Thank You For Raging.

“One of the first electro house tracks I heard was Knife Party’s remix of SHM’s ‘Save The World‘ which was definitely a massive part of my intro into early 2010’s dance music. For years I wanted to find a way to make that song my own for live shows. I don’t play a lot of super well known Top 40 dance songs so when I end up throwing something like this in a set, I love giving it my own take. I toyed with ideas for this for over a year and wasn’t ever really jazzed on any of it. The day before the first show on this year’s Apex Tour with Excision, I wanted to bring something different into my sets. I finished this in about 3-4 hours and drove to Las Vegas for a show the next morning to test it out.”
