You’ll rarely see anyone remixing Celldweller — the man just doesn’t need it. But of the few remixes that are officially commissioned, you’ll notice a consistent quality between them, and SWARM’s latest remix of “Into The Void” doesn’t disappoint.
Heavy guitar riffs are replaced with distorted synths, natural drums replaced with filtered pads, basslines replaced with synthetic, gritty replicas… every single small detail of the original feels like it’s been recognized and identified and copied over with painstaking scrutiny, albeit with a more dark and sinister electronic inclination. Such a comparison brings to mind franchises like Altered Carbon or Bladerunner, to give you a better idea of the reverence I’m paying to SWARM’s remix.
