Mr Brightside (Killers Vs. Hudson Mohawke)

January 9, 2011

I came across Datahowler (formerly Objektiv One) today over at DailyBeatz. Apparently he’s been working on a “lo-fi sci-fi” rock album, which really doesn’t appeal to me but hey, it reminded me of some of his mashup work. And he has an interesting approach to mashups, very electronic and, in my favorites, he really brings out overlooked elements in the original songs. For example, in this track, he made me realize that the Killers are actually rapping in Mr. Brightside. The synths are a little abrasive at first if you’re expecting Mr. Brightside, but give it a listen or two. I really like it.

BONUS: And if you like Datahowler’s usage of cool electronic tracks for a background, you should check out this track too.
