Holy smokes — Gesaffelstein has done it again! If there’s one person who hasn’t succumbed to any type of EDM standard, it’s this guy. With each and every one of his releases, he continues to defy all odds with his brooding and unforgiving breed of techno. His remix to Justice’s “Helix” has been on our radar since it popped up on live videos throughout YouTube — and today, we are finally treated to a decent quality preview ripped from French radio.
Justice’s original electro-rock anthem is stripped down and transformed into a completely new track. Gesaffelstein’s rework borrows the vocal and sets a loop over a stabbing chord sequence that will cause a spine-tingling feeling if played at the proper volume. Layers of extraordinary noises mount up to form a symphony of dark techno. The track is set to release January 7, 2013.
