Arcade Fire is a group that really needs no introduction. Pioneers of oddity and individuality, this multi-member band is definitely one that will help define our generation in the history books.
Flume, a very talented young artist out of Australia, just released a remix of their track "Afterlife" at the group's behest after they spent time with the gent Down Under on their current tour.
Its grandeur can be spotted in each element, starting with the length since it clocks it at just over ten minutes. Epic and constantly scaling, Flume masterfully combines his smooth electronic style with Arcade Fire's rough yet delicate aesthetic. Every element of the original is amped up with beautiful layering and progressively building elements.
The word remix really does not do the caliber of this track credit, so hats off to Flume on this production; it's truly a masterpiece.
