Today (September 14), Canada’s MSTRKRFT (JESSE F. KEELER and AL-P) present a new remix by Patrick Stump for their song “Runaway.” The Fall Out Boy front man taps into his studio skills by switching his guitar prowess for samples and drum machine mastery, creating an alternate dance floor-friendly jam. Listen here.
“I think for us, especially coming from our remixing career, that era when we were doing a ton of remixes, we would always try to take whatever song we’re working on and recontextualize it as much as we could, while still respecting the song,” adds AL-P. “I noticed kind of a similar approach from him, just from the amount of vocal that he used and how it’s vastly different from the original. I think that’s what makes this a successful remix.”
“Runaway” appears on MSTRKRFT‘s third album, the much-buzzed-about OPERATOR on Last Gang Records, which marksthe follow-up to 2009’s Fist of God. Jonathan Bates of Big Black Delta lends his voice to “Runaway.” View its video here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=LtICAtp3lp0.
