EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: Dance With The Dead To This Scandroid Remix

OK I’m going to open this post by just saying: HELL YEAH. That was my first reaction when I learned that Dance With the Dead (of whom we’ve already spoken) were working with Scandroid on a remix of one of his tracks for his upcoming release, Dreams of Neo-Tokyo. Apparently, the new release will feature remixes of all tracks with vocals from Scandroid’s amazing self-titled retrowave release. The idea is to breathe new life into these tracks and re-release them as their own unique story suite. Enter Dance With the Dead and their unique mix of rock and metal with retrowave. Hear the result of this incredible collaboration right below!

Hey! Listen to Dance With the Dead!

You might have noticed that some of us on the blog staff really love Synthwave and Retrowave. And why wouldn’t we? There’s so much in it that appeals, both musically and culturally. Some of it is enjoyable simply because it sounds great; most of it enjoys the added bonus of being culturally interesting, looking back on cultural and historical movements with a critical eye. And some of it is just damn FUN. Case in point: Dance with the Dead. This project straddles the boundaries between synthwave, EDM and plain old dance with its catchy beats and larger than life synth lines. However, it also incorporates a hefty deal of metal influences, with some of the tracks being downright heavy. On the newest release, B​-​Sides: Volume 1, these influences have really been brought to the fore. Just listen to the opening track below.
