“We wanted to try new sounds for this remix: TOKYO ROSE started with the idea of creating a trance remix that could be emotional and melodic, while also working on a darker style that could represent The Forgotten. We ended up mixing both styles into one single remix, where melodies meet cyberpunk.” – The Forgotten and TOKYO ROSE
ERM takes the reins next, and pivots stylistically with a more hard-hitting intensity. The vocal takes front-and-center for the beginning half before the hefty bass drops hits in full-force.

Ash Milez’s remix immediately begins with an elongated, futuristic soundscape. The low-pitched vocal cut is eventually introduced into the sonic space, and evokes a sense of sheer wonder.

“I aimed to create a high energy anthemic dancefloor Drum & Bass tune, and I knew it would work as soon as I heard the vocals. I wanted to keep that retro feel with the use of synth riffs in addition to the distorted bass guitar, which gives the song some grit.” – MYKOOL
Lastly, BUNNY finishes the 5-track remix EP with their new version of ‘Dreams’.
