Tuesday – Tech House remix. 10/01/12. Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (Bastian Van Shield remix)

Tuesday’s child had deja vu,

The Daily Remix Blog followers will know that I have already written about Rishi‘s remix to Gotye‘s breakout single Somebody That I Used To Know a month back, but if you aren’t aware, I’ll give you 8 minutes to go and check and it out here (2 minutes to read, 4 minutes to listen & 2 minutes to gush about how good it is (the write-up, not the song, although thats pretty good too).

Where Rishi brought us a beautifully deep soulful remix, Bastian Van Shield has delivered a club ready Christmas present 49 weeks early. The German remix machine has added his nuances to everyone from Michael Jackson, Red Hot Chili Peppers & John “I’ve-composed-every-movie-ever” Williams, and today releases a promotional Tech House bootleg of the highest quality.

The original and Rishi’s remix alike are wonderfully crafted songs, but outside of a chic lounge, there is no room for them in a DJ’s set. Van Shield has produced a dark resonating techy bassline to accentuate the deep chords and Gotye’s haunting vocals. What I love best is the prominence of the original xylophone notes that serve to swell and deepen the listener’s emotions to empathize with the inequitable fable of the ones you loved the most dwindling into complete strangers.

For those following over the past few days will know I have been writing emotionally charged pieces about emotionally powerful songs, and this track is no different. Expect a few more like this as I work through my own relationship inequities, music gives me reason, but writing is an outlet. I encourage every music fan to do the same and really listen to the message the artist is trying to convey, the best songs are composed from personal challenges and through their pain, beauty can arise, today’s song is about as beautiful as it can get.
