d3adc0de – “FIGHT OR FLIGHT” (THE CRYSTAL METHOD REMIX)
A SPILL EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE
Following their arrival to Planet Earth a few weeks ago sci-fi electro-rockers, d3adc0de are now teaming up with electronic legends The Crystal Method for a brand new remix for their song “Fight Or Flight,” which releases today independently. The duo, made up of Stephen Sims (vocals) and Steven Morgan (production and instrumentation) have also dropped a visualizer alongside the new remix. It serves as a side-story tease for their ongoing narrative being unveiled through their music and various other forms of multimedia and features an astronaut watching earth under attack before being pulled into a cross dimensional freefall.
Ditching the guitars featured on the original track, the new remix veers into Big Beat territory with glitchy synths, steady drum patterns, and bass breakdowns all taking center stage while still maintaining the cinematic vibes of the original. Merging the organic and the electronic, “Fight or Flight’s” remix fits the visuals of falling through an intergalactic spacial rend perfectly.
“The Crystal Method has been an influence to my song-writing for more than a decade,” explains Morgan. “I’ve had that inspiration ever since hearing the song ‘Trip Like I Do’ where the intro begins with the lyrics ‘another world, another time.’ It seems the collaboration between d3adc0de and The Crystal Method is in the spirit of that message. It’s very exciting to hear the remix version of our debut single. It’s a refreshing twist to the original song that stands out on its own, and makes me feel like I’m listening to a song straight off of Vegas or Tweekend, except, it’s a d3adc0de song.”
“I was very excited to see what The Crystal Method could do with ‘Fight or Flight,’ given their unique and pioneering sound,” adds Sims. “The classic collaboration track with Filter, ‘Trip Like I Do,’ demonstrated their ability to blend rock and electronic, and so we knew that the outcome would blow us away. I still have ‘The Trip Home,’ one of The Crystal Method’s more recent releases on my weekly playlist due heavily to the impressive vocal features and timeless sound. The ‘Fight or Flight’ remix exceeded my already high expectations.”
