Faithless – We Come 1 2.0 (Armin Van Buuren Remix)
The seminal UK electronica band Faithless seemed to have slipped into obscurity as modern EDM established its reign on the world’s airwaves. This summer, however, they’ve succeeded in re-introducing themselves to the public and fortifying their influence over dance music by recruiting high-profile artists to remix their biggest tracks. The most recent edition to this roster is “The King of Trance” himself, Armin Van Buuren. Remolding Faithless’ classic anthem “We Come 1” into a modern trance track, Van Buuren adds in some gritty electro synths and a more atmospheric touch to the original’s signature leads. Though nothing can truly rival an original Faithless production, Armin does do a good job in maintaining “We Come 1’s” appeal while bathing it in sounds that lesser-experienced EDM ears are used to hearing. The trance maestro’s take on “We Come 1” will be included in Faithless 2.0, the band’s highly anticipated remix album.
