Back before I truly got into electronic dance music in around 2006, I used to go to Warped Tour. This is where I saw Bring Me The Horizon and saw the energy and level of craziness that ensued. Come to present day, I saw this track sitting in my email and I was excited to hear a remix. I have covered two prior. Naturally, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Needless to say, I had did not expect this track from EMBRZ. Nope. Caught me 100% off-guard. This is a beautiful “homage” to what they have created. As EMBRZ says, this is not a remix. In fact, read what he had to say and listen to the track below.
I wanted to revisit my old music-making roots, and sample some of my favourite tracks. I decided to go with ‘Drown’, a really special track by Bring Me The Horizon. My intention was to build my own sound around some of the hooks in the original. Really pleased with how it turned out. Rather than this being a remix or an edit, I like to think of this as a homage to the original. I’ve actually sampled 3 different versions of the track. You can hear parts of the original, an acoustic version, and a cover I discovered.
