DC Gore unveils The KVB Remix of “Nietzsche On The Beach”
28th March 2022
Following the release of the satirical, synth-layered single “Nietzsche On The Beach”, today DC Gore releases a pulsating, euphoric remix of the track by the electronic cold wave duo, The KVB.
Whilst the grotesque and romanticised dissection of the British political landscape on holiday remains central - “mobile phone shaped tan lines, the fascist weekender” - The KVB reinterpretation of “Nietzsche On The Beach” evokes the spirit of dancefloors past.
Alongside the release, the Adam Othman-directed visualiser features suitably nostalgic VHS rave footage, acting as the perfect accompaniment to the single.
“You hope a song is strong enough to stand alone,” says DC Gore. “But when the remix came through it was like entering a completely different world. For a moment it was theirs and I was hearing it for the first time - I can’t think of a bigger compliment than that.”
On the remix The KVB commented: “This was the first music we'd worked on after finishing our tour and then recovering from Covid. It was grey and raining outside, so with all the references to the beach in the song, we wanted our remix to capture the feeling of anticipation and longing for the summer that's just around the corner.”
They continued: “We often like to play around with the arrangements on our remixes, but as this song already has such a strong story and a big chorus, it was just about making it even more euphoric and anthemic.”
