Infected Mushroom – Demons of Pain (Freccero Remix)

No Comments Music

Here is my remix of Demons of Pain by Infected Mushroom! I had a really fun time remixing this track, and I put a unique Deep House/Tech House/Dark House spin on the original. Infected Mushroom was the first artist that really got me into Electronic Music and EDM, so I wanted to combine a house feel with some psychedelic elements.

Song Explanation

Like I said above, Infected Mushroom was the first artist that really got me into EDM. I played the game Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) when I was younger, and after really liking the techno songs in the game, I searched for other artists and discovered Infected Mushroom – and that was it for me.

So for this remix, I wanted to take it a different direction – something I would want to play live, and possibly Infected Mushroom would want to play out as well.

I took this song down from 145bpm to 128, as I wanted to do a more housey spin on the original.

I started it off with the lyrics and no other elements, just to highlight the interesting and unique vocals from the original. Upon the last phrase, I loop the vocal while adding a sub bass, signifying something is about to happen. The track then builds up, transitioning into the house drop.

On this drop, I went for a Deep House style with a dark/psychedelic spin. I had the sub bass doing it’s own melody line, while I created a unique sounding synth in serum to really give it a gritty and dark feel.

As the drop continues, I bring in a sample from the original track, a nice vocal splicing element that they used.

The track then jumps into another build after the drop, transitioning quickly into the second drop of the song. For this drop, I wanted to use the synth like a siren, creating a minimalistic atmosphere while still being dark and deep.

Although this song is definitely a lot shorter than other tracks I’ve released, I wanted it to be minimalistic in nature while still having a bunch of elements blended into one.

 

Song Lyrics

Just when I thought that I knew when I’m moody of
Your faith, understand, and the love that you have brought upon
Me and you, against the other one

Together I’ve defeated for the first time that I’m vivid
so I don’t know why I’m dreaming of

Demons of pain
Looping all betrayals I’ve done in shame
Again and again
I thought that I’d been saved yet here I am

Those demons of pain
Looping my mistakes I’ve done in vain
Again and again
I thought that I’d been saved yet here I am

Just when I thought there’s no door to escape my downs
You took all my pain and my shame and you pulled me up
Towards my dreams against the other ones

Together I’ve defeated for the first time that I’m vivid
so I don’t know why I’m dreaming of

Demons of pain
Looping all betrayals I’ve done in shame
Again and again
I thought that I’d been saved yet here I am

Those demons of pain
Looping my mistakes I’ve done in vain
Again and again
I thought that I’d been saved yet here I am
