Grimes kicked off 2021 by releasing an electronic remix edition of her album Miss Anthropocene featuring a talented array of EDM producers including Richie Hawtin, ANNA, and Rezz. Rezz‘ contribution to the album was a dark midtempo take on collaboration track “Violence” by Grimes and late artist and friend i_o.

Two days before the release of the album Rezz took to Twitter to share her feelings on having remixed a beloved song by her late friend – “Grimes is one of my fav artists. When Garret (i_o) was making “Violence” with her, we were texting a lot during that time. he would send me updates of their song & I told him it was a repeat song for me. Very grateful to have remixed it & it be coming out officially.”

Grimes airy vocals are contrasted by Rezz‘ signature gritty sound. The light vocals build to a powerful midtempo bass drop with a pulsing dark and cosmic energy. Rezz was able to reimagine the track to match her eerie synthy tone while still leaving enough of the original elements to pay tribute to i_o and Grimes original production.

You can check out the “Violence” remix and full Miss Anthropocene (Rave Edition) on Spotify now.
