Wow. That is the exact word you might use to describe this remix if you just heard it for the first time. We’ve been blessed with a lot of amazing remixes in 2017, but this one absolutely closes out the year with a bang!
Fransis Derelle and SWRVN have both teamed up to bring us this powerful remix of a Deadmau5 classic. You can instantly hear both of their musical styles within this remix as the Future Bass and electronic styles of both clash in the most majestic ways.
“Raise Your Weapon” is a timeless song in its own right, (and also one of my personal favorites from the Mau5 himself). So, when I first heard this I couldn’t help but get the feels. Even up to the very end of the track where you hear the voices of two lovers talking, “This time I’ll be the one that saves you, I promise.” A man says before the woman asks, “Why’s that?” To which he replies passionately, “Because I love you.“
Then…the track ends. This was the perfect way to end a track of that caliber, and also the perfect way to end a year that’s been full of so many emotional moments.
