The Golden Filter: Kill Me (John Talabot Remix)
on 02 November 2014
NYC electronic music duo The Golden Filter's song "Kill Me" causes shivers with vocals veiled in reverb and eerie, bare synths (with an even more disturbing music video depicting a mother's overboard obsession with her son—a metaphor for unhealthy, deceitful relationships). Spanish DJ and producer John Talabot makes the dark tune more danceable, with a hypnotizing, wavering synth melody as its backbone, but preserving its raw emotion. The remix was reissued by Munich-based label Permanent Vacation this week in Volume 3 of their compilation series, and it's available for the first time on 12" vinyl.
