Florida duo Foreign Suspects have released their searing remix of TWO OWLS‘ “Waking up the Dead” feat. Elle Vee, one of 2017’s standout electronic singles.
While the panoramic scope of the original is still present, and Elle Vee’s vocals cascade airily over the track, Foreign Suspects revamp give the song a lip-biting attack reminiscent of Herobust‘s or Nitti Gritti‘s depraved trap remixes.
The second drop is particularly heavy, with Vee’s stirring “waking up the dead” lyric stuttering brokenly across sirens and 808 bombast. Then the third drop, a melodic refrain with clean synths and uplifting textures to push back against the insanity.
Foreign Suspects are definitely producers to look out for in 2018.
