Paul Woolford, Maceo Plex, and Bernard Sumners submit respective remixes of New Order’s ‘Be a Rebel’
New Order have shared part one of their “Be a Rebel” remixes, directing re-imaginative duties to Paul Woolford, Maceo Plex, and Bernard Sumners. All three reinterpretations highlight the late ’80s electronic sound; Sumner’s “Outlaw Mix” fully immerses fans with a vintage showcase of vocoders, keys, drums, synths, and bass. Both Woolford and Maceo Plex’s remixes cross over into contemporary deep techno and progressive while incorporating break-beat and synth-pop.
New Order recently announced a homecoming show in Manchester, UK on September 10, 2021, after which they plan tour the United States at venues such as Madison Square Garden (New York), The Gorge (Washington), and the Hollywood Bowl (California). A full list of dates is available here; the first part of the “Be a Rebel” remixes can be found below.
