GENIX + ESKAI & SNR remix Choosing his Angels. Out tomorrow.
Riding its bass, drum & percussion rig, Genix’s approach sees him shoot grungy, moody bass guitar licks through the studio’s mod banks. In its later sections he contrasts its rock-ish proclivities with shafts of melody and chiming FX, supporting the themes of Alex’s mortality-musing song to a tee.
Far from being outshone in the eclectic stakes, Eskai & SNR likewise let their creativity off the leash. Their spin on ‘Choosing His Angels’ leverages metallic percussion and subby-bass against wedges of squelch and some distinctly Wild West-like FX. Deftly though, the pair lose none of the soul, pathos and sentiment of Karweit’s vocal, ultimately winding it up into a final act of heartfelt elevation.
These two dazzling, imaginative reworks in the truest sense of the word ‘remix’ will be out tomorrow!
