Another installment of New Orleans festival Voodoo has officially arrived, bringing 65-plus acts across diverse genres together for one jam-packed Halloween weekend. Taking place in New Orleans’ City Park on the Festival Grounds during weekend of October 25-27, the music and arts experience has attracted more than 2000 artists to play since its 1999 debut.

In his first flex since the blistering S E N T I E N C E EP on Zeds Dead‘s Deadbeats imprint, 1788-L returns to the remix ring with a heavy new flip of The Glitch Mob‘s “Disintegrate Slowly.” The mysterious producer’s contribution to The Glitch Mob’s remix-stuffed deluxe edition of their See Without Eyes LP serves as a loud reminder for any fans remiss of his remixing savvy.
1788-L’s take borrows the original’s hard rock backbone and speeds things up for an extra dose of energy–and that’s before the gritty bass and pounding percussion take hold. Building around a synth-riff steeped in guitar-style twang, the track explodes into one of the artist’s most nuanced drops to date. The familiar distorted crackle envelopes a glitch-heavy breakbeat and a destructively funky bass line. It’s clear the producer is feeling free and easy to expand his sonic signature to new rhythmic and experimental territory. Even among the heavy hitters delivering the album’s remix consignments, including Machinedrum and REZZ, 1788’s rendition is still an unequivocal standout.
1788-L has one-upped himself yet again with his remix of The Glitch Mob’s “Disintegrate Slowly”. Today, The Glitch Mob released an album full of original songs and remixes, but this one stands out from the pack. 1788-L holds some of The Glitch Mob’s original sound but adds in their one-of-a-kind sound that blows us away.

ODESZA blasted back into focus this fall with the release of the horn-powered cinema that is “Loyal”– but that didn’t stop them reaching back to their 2017 track “Falls” for a grip of remixes by a fittingly star-studded set of names. Originally appearing on the duo’s fourth long player A Moment Apart, the Sasha Sloan-assisted cut was pure ODESZA from start to finish, with echoing vocal cuts and tribal percussion. With six stellar artists on hand to reimagine the song, it’s clear the track is headed for exciting new worlds on a stellar array of remixes.
UK-based trap and hip hop savant TroyBoi is up first with a minimal knocker of a rework, featuring sugary guitar strums and twinkling leads over knocking drums. Australian producer Golden Features swoops in next to dial up a menacing and spacey house take that packs equal punch and ambiance. TOKiMONSTA provides a standout addition by preserving the joy and depth of the original along with an injection of stuttering percussion and driving vocal chops. Ever the wildcard, Kaskade surprises with a majestic trap-infused take that lets the vocals soar over rich electro-tinged pads. Photay keeps the unexpected rolling with a rolling and experimental offering that glitches the original’s vocals into a synth like riff. The Glitch Mob wrap the journey up with their sizzling signature electro, capping off a remix pack that brings the ever expansive emotion of ODESZA into the throes of some of electronic music’s most creative minds.

Machinedrum have unveiled a sub-torturing take on The Glitch Mob‘s “Enter Formless,” the opening track to the group’s 2018 album, See Without Eyes. Machinedrum previously supplied remix magic on the electronic group’s 2011 Drink The Sea (Remixes Vol. 2) compilation, and the glitch house stalwart shows no fear this go around crafting a daring and experimental transformation for The Glitch Mob.
The original’s bold synth riffs boom-bap percussion still star in Machinedrum’s rework. The remix opens with the melody flanked gorgeously by acoustic guitars as a snare roll launches into the first drop, a transition that perfectly characterizes the take’s bi-polar sonic structure. Distorted subs swell and expand from behind crunchy breakbeat kicks, before the drop reaches a drum and bass-inspired boil. The guitars and spaced out synth melody return in a wash of echoes and ambiance, before song explodes again into a glitchy drop topped with searing pads. Just as the listener begins settling into the madness, the remix ends on a lone acoustic guitar plucking out the original’s melody to melancholic effect.
Machinedrum’s shape-shifting interpretation latches onto the bold and beautiful elements of the original and dials them up to 11 in their own solo moments, creating a constantly surprising and satisfying new production.
