after a first listen to the new track by The Killers I knew it was time to remix them again. I emailed Matt D'Arduini at Island immediately & this became a reality. having done "Somebody Told Me" back in the day, this had to be special if I was going to revisit such a classic band. I knew to do this right I needed NYC's best kept secret, @secretweaponsofficial to dive in with me on this. we flipped it upside down, subtracted lots of things & added low end muscle & Disco guitars to made it the electronic record it deserves to be. @slatin did the mastering so this one is set to abuse speakers worldwide. I hope you enjoy listening to this as much as we did making it.
