DELERIUM RELEASES “RITUAL” SINGLE FT. REMIXES BY MATT LANGE AND ALEX KLINGLE
The dynamic Canadian duo DELERIUM released their new single “Ritual” today. The single is off the group’s new album Mythologie that captures a new experimental sound that flows perfectly with their original dark ambient vibes. Along with the single “Ritual,” the group will also release numerous remixes to the song that combines variant twists from other artists such as Matt Lange, Alex Klingle, Blush, and Architect who are able to recreate their own versions from the original track.
The Captivating love song “Ritual” is unique from most DELERIUM songs due to its progressive beat and intricate vocals that entrances its audience into a whole new world, which opens it easily to remixes. Signed to deadmau5’s record label mau5trap, Los Angeles-based producer, composer, and DJ Matt Lange is known for his darkly melodic breed of electronic music rooted in energy and emotion and he brings style to his remix, changing rhythms and speed throughout. Vancouver’s Alex Klingle speeds up the tempo on his remix and layers it with organic instrumentation. The other remixes by Architect and Blush Response add their own stamp to the track as well, distorting the synths and creating new versions all their own.
Mixed and mastered by Canadian record sound engineer Greg Reely (Sarah McLachlan, Coldplay, Machine Head, Fear Factory), Mythologie delves deeper into new sounds and vocal textures than ever before as it seduces and shines with its metaphoric lyrics and mesmerizing resonance. Predominant producers and musicians Bill Leeb and Rhys Fulber created these dark ethereal and ambient soundscapes over a two-year period and enlisted Jared Slingerland and Craig Johnsen along with several lyricists blending their signature atmospheric sounds with a unique, modern edge. Guest vocalists and lyricists include, Jael (Lunik), JES (Tiesto, BT, Paul Van Dyk), Mimi Page (Bassnectar), Phildel, Geri Soriano-Lightwood (Supreme Beings of Leisure) and Leah Randi (Pink, Abandoned Pools, Paradise Lost).
The group formed in 1987 originally as a side project of the influential industrial legends Front Line Assembly, DELERIUM quickly amassed attention within the underground music scene and broke through to the mainstream with their worldwide hit “Silence” featuring Sarah McLachlan. It reached Number One on the charts in five countries and is touted as one of the greatest trance songs of all-time. DELERIUM has previously received the remix treatment from a multitude of notable producers and remixers such as Tiesto, Niels van Gogh, Seven Lions, Airscape, and Above & Beyond.
