Son Lux – Flickers (Zeds Dead Remix) [Free Download]
With remixes that range from Nina Simone to Bon Iver to The Prodigy, the question for DC and Hooks is not why but why not. The Zeds Dead boys have proven star chameleons in the musical landscape, gracefully blending genres while holding on to their vague, grimey shape. And though its been a hot minute since a track has been deemed worthy of the remix treatment, “Flickers” has made the cut. A rework of the haunting tune from New York’s Son Lux, the updated version loses a few strings and ditches some spook but fills the void with a buzzing bass and heavy hi-hats. While structurally predicated on the plodding whole note that backed the original alternative manifesto, Zeds Dead’s version of “Flicker” has its own spark, bringing movement to the melancholy. To further elevate the track, like much of the duo’s discography, “Flickers” is free.
