I’m not a Crystal Castles fan. The music is a bit too trance for me. But maybe I should try it again. Whether or not this makes me biased or twisted, I’m going to give them a closer look now because one of my musical heroes is clearly and openly a fan. THURSTON MOORE.
He’s not a remix artist. So why did he do this?
While the original is a house party hit, complete with pulsating electronic effects and soaring angelic vocals, Moore’s treatment turns the song from dance dance to introspective think piece. It sounds like guitars take the place of some electronics, not surprisingly.
