Berlin-based electronic-rock duo BULLET HEIGHT, featuring Sammi Doll of IAMX and Jon Courtney of Pure Reason Revolution, have released a stunning electronica remix by DJ Hyper for their new single, “Hold Together,” out now via Superball Music (Matt Skiba & The Sekrets, ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Dredg, and more).
The full single is available on all digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, and more, and features “Hold Together,” the DJ Hyper remix, and another another remix of the track by Texan producer ArtVersusIndustry. “When I was sent the Bullet Height material, I knew this was a band whose music made sense to me,” comments DJ Hyper on working with Bullet Height. “It’s exactly the sort of music I would choose to listen to and the ideas for the remix came thick and fast. I’ve aimed to counterpoint beautiful melody with aggression and I couldn’t be happier with the results. It’s one of my favourite remixes of recent years.”
The band added: “Hyper makes brooding electronic beasts – anyone that’s not heard the albums ‘Lies’ or ‘Bully’ absolutely needs to! When the remix came back we were blown away – it struck the perfect tone & vibe. There’s already been talk of a collaboration on his upcoming material, which we’re super excited about.”
A pioneering British electronica and breakbeats DJ, Hyper is both prolific and critically acclaimed, previously working with the likes of The Prodigy, Paul Van Dyk and more. His 2013 award-nominated album ‘Lies’(which featured two Beatport #1’s) was followed up quickly with the ground-breaking and beautiful ‘Symphony Of Lies’ which saw eight of the original album tracks broken down and reinterpreted with strings and sound design as a total juxtaposition to the standard dance floor remix package.
Hyper’s music has been featured on Orange Is The New Black, BBC 6 Nations television coverage and the IMAX trailer for the Everest movie, with remixes for Kelis and Killaflaw also under his belt. His latest studio album (2015’s ‘Bully’) featured Neil Ormandy fresh from his work with Eric Prydz and the stunning voice of Robert Shields, and was widely hailed as a return to form. Bullet Height, meanwhile, recently released theofficial video for ‘Hold Together,’ filmed on location in Berlin by director and long-time artistic collaborator Valquire Veljkovic.
The new track shows yet another side to the increasingly apparent songwriting talents of band members Jon Courtney (Pure Reason Revolution) and Sammi Doll (IAMX), pulling in the heavier elements in the likes of Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode and The Prodigy, and blending them with the hard techno sounds of Gesaffelstein, Gatekeeper, and the brooding, sexual underbelly of Berlin’s macabre underground dance music scene.
