Now I’m certainly not what you would call a Fenech-Soler fan. They are just a little bit too handsome and clean and tasteful for me. However, I do love me a bit of Drums of Death and I’ll take it wherever I can get it. His album, Generation Hexed, was one of my favourite albums of 2010 because it managed to sound like a warehouse party that took place in a permanent Halloween. In a different universe. Or something. It was amazing, anyway.
On this remix, he has managed to take Fenech-Soler’s nicely-assembled pop and give it a wonky and sinister edge, and all without any heavy-handed Salem-style gothic choirs. It also manages to be weirdly cyclical, because it ends with the same beat as it starts, you can put it on repeat on iTunes with the right crossfader settings (2 seconds sounds cool), and you won’t notice it go back to the beginning, putting you in a permanent Drums of Death-inspired coma.
Er….anyway, they are giving it away for free below, so grab it while you can.
