This particular remix is the work of Twin Shadow's former bassist, Russ Manning (aka Young Midnight). He has drenched "Heavy Burden" with spotty, ragged synths and beats, all deconstructed into a fast-paced dance number that's sure to make you want to move. The combination of smooth, airy vocals with intergalactic electronics makes for a hypnotizing contrast between ethereal and industrial. There's a touch of new wave, a touch of indie pop, and a tinge of dreamwave -- which is a style that we're seeing and hearing more and more of these days. This genre-hopping approach leaves a lot of room for experimentation and rule breaking.
It looks like Young Midnight is on a roll, remixing a handful of up-and-coming acts such as Doe Paoro & Zombri. Keep your eyes and ears peeled for any new and energetic releases from Young Midnight!
