I saw two possible ways for the remix; one was to pick up on the house piano and do a old school, chicago house mix and the other was to pick up on the New Order vibe of the guitar melody. I choose the latter and I am very pleased with the result.
Once finished with the remix I tried to get back to the russian gentleman who sent me the request, but he seemed to absent from Facebook and didnt answer my messages .After a couple of weeks of waiting I tracked down the band directly and managed to get in contact with them.
They liked my mix and I am very thankful that my work will come to use. Check out Dark Phenomenon if you are into melancholy synth pop in the vein of Pet Shop Boys and DM.
