Pegboard Nerds give Celldweller’s ‘The Imperial March’ a drumstep re-up
Who better to celebrate Star Wars Day (“May the 4th be with you”) with a remix of Celldweller‘s “The Imperial March,” than Pegboard Nerds? Monstercat‘s favorite 8-bit Danish-Norwegian duo have brought new intensity and quirkiness to Celldweller’s now iconic three-year-old dance cover.
The Nerds add to the original track’s catalogue of ubiquitous Darth Vader samples, while leaving Celldweller’s “You don’t know the power of the dark side,” as the resonating lead vocal. The Nerds also replace most of Celldweller’s instrumentation with droid beeps and boops, along with an ample archive of other Star Wars’ franchise-reminiscent nods. The wild and animated dub/drumstep rendition will make the listener proud to don their malevolent, red saber this Star Wars Day.
