Panic! At The Disco – Victorious (RAC Mix)
Panic! At The Disco are still trudging along over ten years after their breakout album A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out, penning angsty alternative rock songs that are catchy enough to maintain public interest in the band’s latest endeavors. Their recent single “Victorious,” a poppy rock anthem which speaks of a poisonous romance, has already amassed 14 million views on YouTube since it was posted in mid-November.
RAC targeted the composition as his latest re-work experiment, forging a refined finished product that stays true to its roots. The remix maestro maintains Brendan Urie’s menacing vocals, slowing them down to increase the vibe they put forth. Where he strengthens the song’s ethos through vocals, he softens the guitar’s edge and adds in a light synth flavor to bring “Victorious” to an indie electronic level.
Re-works like this are reminders of why RAC has such a devoted following and a Grammy nomination under his belt — he melds each original track he chooses seamlessly into his own musical vision, drawing from multiple influences to make each piece unique while continuously adding production value.
