Major Moment - 2021

Today, HM is proud to premiere a brand new remix of Major Moment’s 2020 single, “The Flood.” Following the release of the song’s music video (above), Major Moment teamed up with Hoss Haus, an electronic trance/house crossover project founded by Paul “Paulie Hoss” Draicchio, to reimagine their most popular single to date.

The remix will be featured on the band’s upcoming EP, The Flood: Remixed & Reimagined, featuring an array of producers from LA to Berlin, New York to Russia. Spearheaded by two Russian-born vocalists, Major Moment has developed an intense and diverse cinematic rock soundscape that integrates heavy guitar riffs, multi-layered synths, and melodic vocals — all with an international essence that has rocked the Boston music scene since their formation in 2018.

We spoke with vocalist and synth player Audrey Borzykin about the remixed track:

“Earlier this year I saw Paul’s post on social media, it was about starting a new project in the EDM direction, which was definitely surprising to me, I’ve only seen his heavy 7-string side before. Me & Sasha were just thinking about what we were going to do with Major Moment’s upcoming release: we already had a couple remixes done by our friends, but it felt like we could take it even further, from what was originally planned as a single / EP release to a full remix album. I reached out to Paul, and he was happy to add his spin to ‘The Flood.’ It felt great to have a fellow metalhead be a part of our (slightly crazy) remix party.”

Draicchio, a former metal guitarist, also weighed in on the collaboration: “I fell in love with Major Moment’s music while working on their light show. When the opportunity was presented to collaborate on a song I could not pass on the chance!”

Check out the remix below and keep up with Major Moment on Facebook and Instagram.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
