Direct takes the brooding power of Essenger’s “Downfall” and transforms it into an atmospheric, low-key effort with stunning results on this brand new remix. Echoes of Essenger and Lexi Norton’s singing performances drift across Direct’s soundscape while glitchy new instrumentation spreads across the piece for a ghostly reimagining of the original.
After my first listen of After Dark, I was so inspired by the epic movie-like feeling of the record. When I was invited to remix “Downfall” I knew I had to maintain the epic feeling while adding my sonic twists. What I arrived at was something that could be played in the futuristic nightclub of my dreams.– Direct
The Direct remix of “Downfall” is available now on all platforms from independent synthwave label FiXT Neon
