The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living
The life of the dead is placed in the memory of the living, according to Cicero. It is how we continue the endless journey. The Day I Die should therefore include both regret and hope. And that’s how it is with the new deep house remix package from Lopez on Electronic Anarchy.
The Funf Telle Wodka mix has smooth deep house with both a sombre undertow and uplifting synths. Gio Star turns The Day I Die into an uplifting trance-like meditation on rebirth and a prayer to the sky. David Burster makes full use of the vocals from the original to focus on hope and exhilaration in a trance house explosion. The S5E takes the track softly into an electro direction but with a dub element from the repeated bass chords. The package ends with Dennis Herrezeel’s bass heavy offering. This is the most leftfield of the mixes, with backwards masking and even glitching, making you stop and contemplate the meaning of it all.
