Digital-Witness-Darkside
Something about Darkside’s remix of Digital Witness seems appropriate given the message that the song’s originator, St. Vincent, was trying to send about technology. The track completely distorts St. Vincent’s vocals, draining every sense of her layout of the song and, by extension, its humanity. The remix is the original’s sonic antithesis, but it works. Even if you’re not the biggest fan of the remix, you have to give credit where credit is due. Darkside has invented something really interesting. The remix will be featured on an upcoming 12-inch that will also include instrumental and a cappella versions of the song. Check out the alienating remix now over at Other People.
