There are cities around the world that come with their own unique personality, no matter what your background, we all know the rule, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas’. That being said, one band that calls the gambling wonderland home, is the incredibly versatile alternative rock group, The Killers. The band recently released their fifth studio album titled Wonderful Wonderful, further solidifying the firm foundation set forward by their alternative rock roots.
A single, released on June 14th this year titled The Man, has already been climbing the charts with its perfect fusion of organic and synthetic elements. The track gets straight to the point, immediately kicking into a funk-filled groove, with lead singer Brandon Flowers delivering his trademark dramatic vocal.
As if the original hadn’t already hit the sweet spot, English DJ/Producer Duke Dumont has put his own spin on things, with a remix that takes all the best elements from the original track and warmly tucks it into a bed of dirty beats, distorting synths and dance floor dropping basslines. The remix shows a new side to the producer’s familiar deep house sound, coming hot on the heels of his latest collaboration with Gorgon City, titled Real Life.
