Shogun Delivers High Power Remix For Conjure One & Jeza’s “Wolves At The Door”

Returning to the release radar with his first offering of the year, established force Shogun is back with a remix of Conjure One & Jeza’s new single ‘Wolves at the Door’. The massive rendition reconstructs the original’s syncopated bass pulse and downtempo nature by increasing the intensity, introducing a thumping bassline with a culmination of striking synths. Shogun’s latest offering follows the December release of his original production, ‘Dreamland’. Injecting his signature trance flair into ‘Wolves at the Door,’ the new iteration is now available across all streaming platforms via Black Hole Recordings.

STREAM: CONJURE ONE & JEZA – ‘WOLVES AT THE DOOR’ (SHOGUN REMIX)

Transforming the darker tones and emotive sensibilities of the original track, Shogun takes ‘Wolves at the Door’ and delivers a club-ready trance hit. The remix sees the addition of a warped bassline, surrounded by a pulsating rhythm. With oscillating synths and a propelling soundscape, Shogun’s rendition adds a new dimension to the track, taking listeners to a hypnotizing atmosphere with layered, pulse-raising percussive elements. Showcasing Shogun’s musical style, he’s delivered another palpably addictive, anthemic hit that is sure to set dance floors ablaze.

“For this remix, I wanted to produce a faster techno, future rave, trance style since ‘Delerium – Silence’ is one of my all-time favorite songs. I drew inspiration from a lot of the Conjure One & Delerium classics so I kept the bpm at a faster pace while minimizing the vocals a bit.. this way it would be ready for the dance floor. I really loved the original, so wanted to keep that emotional aspect but also make it more banging at the same time.”

ABOUT CONJURE ONE – Rhys Fulber spent nearly two decades as a member of pioneering acts Delerium and Front Line Assembly before emerging as Conjure One. Born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, he spent his early years surrounded by instruments. Influenced by his father’s recorded collection, Fulber began playing drums and went on to learn the way of working in a studio. As a teenager he found himself discovering the first wave of the electronic underground culture, leading him to join electro-industrial band Front Line Assembly after meeting founding member Bill Leeb at a local alternative fashion store. As they took on tours of Europe and the US, the band landed a cemented position in industrial dance. Finding themselves in a period of experimentation, the band went on to develop side project, Delerium, as an outlet for more ambient textures and soundscapes. But by 1996, Fulber decided to leave the band to pursue a solo career as Conjure One, setting up a studio in Amsterdam. Soon after, his debut album, Conjure One, was released in 2002, featuring hit track ‘Tears from the Moon’ featuring Sinéad O’Connor. Now returning after his 2015 album on Armada Music, Holoscenic, Conjure One recently released his new track ‘Wolves at the Door’ in collaboration with JEZA.
