Decay and https://soundcloud.com/zakaria-ahmed (Simple Automaton) have done a remix of Linkin Park's "Guilty All The Same" (from their forthcoming album "The Hunting Party"), as part of the Monthly Mix-Up contest, held by Linkin Park Association.
On the process of making the remix:
"https://soundcloud.com/zakaria-ahmed and me wanted to make a remix together. I already started on one before, which served as a base for this remix. Over time, the remix became more and more agressive. Immediately, we knew this was the direction we were meant to go in. We had a lot of fun and we hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did producing it!"
An early listener on the remix:
"Absolutely rips your face off, throws it on the ground, stomps on it, then makes a half-arsed attempt to reattach it to your head using its own bodily fluids as an adhesive, and then repeats the process until you surrender."
This remix contains vocal samples from "Victimized", a track from Linkin Park's previous album "Living Things".
I saw this month's theme and found "War" to be an interesting song to try and remix with Nu-Disco/French House in mind. The original song has these pauses throughout the song that I also thought would be interesting to use in a remix with this genre. I tried to somewhat keep the energy from the original, but put it into a Nu-Disco/French House context.
Finally, with the vocal samples, I kind of wanted to put song into context. The original pretty much mainly speaks of war killing people, but it does more than that: it fucks up people's minds. And that's not limited to innocent citizens victimized by war, but also soldiers fighting in and getting prepared for war.
Anyways, I hope you guys like it!
