Exclusive look at new Smiling Assassin track ‘Psycho-apathy’

By Penny Bennett

After the success of Smiling Assassin’s debut album ‘Plight of The Millennial’, they have teamed up with veteran DJ/Producer Endoflevelbaddie to bring you ‘Plight of The Millennial [Remix]’.

Flipping the Punk genre on its head and breaking all the rules this album is exactly what it says on the tin, the full debut album remixed from start to finish. Mirroring the relentless chaos and anger that the original album has, Smiling assassin hope to break into a new audience and turn mosh pits into rave pits.

‘I’m a slut for bass.’ says vocalist George Garnett, ‘So the first time I heard the remix I was immediately hooked. The original track is riddled with polyrhythms and Baddie grabbed the bull by the horns and really leaned into it, the sporadic drums over the bass and synth lines is really something special.’

‘I went for something a bit dark and stabby with this one, kept it quite minimal musically and added extra aggro for the chorus. It was one of the earlier tracks I remixed and as easy as it would have been to turn every track into a drum and bass version I wanted to go in a different direction with this one.’ Explains Baddie.
