Hurry! Put on your dancing shoes and put this track on rotate! The Young Midnight remix of Sleep Party People’s “Heavy Burden” is super charged and ready to roll.
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!
