As It Is have released a Shikari Sound System remix of their song The Wounded World.
Released to coincide with their European support tour with Enter Shikari, the boys in As It Is gave their track to Rou Reynolds to play with – and this is what the Enter Shikari frontman was able to conjure up.
Reynolds wanted to do something with one of their support buddies’ songs and picked The Wounded World as the perfect candidate.
“As we embark on a big European tour with the lads we thought it’d be a solid idea to remix one of their tracks,” explained the singer.
When the track initially was a big, mosh classic – Reynolds wants it to be a staple on any dance floor as well as any sweaty pit.
“I gave The Wounded World the triple S treatment. I’m sure this will now fill dance floors just as the original filled mosh pits,” he concluded.
As It Is frontman Patty Walters continued to say that the remix fits in with the kind of 2019 that the band is having. They’re trying different things and a SSS remix is just up their street.
“2019 is a year of reimagining for us so we’re very excited today to bring you Shikari Sound System’s remix of The Wounded World,” said Walters.
Walters continue to cite influences such as The Prodigy and express delight that Reynolds was able to be a part of the remix after influencing As It Is’s sound.
“The song and especially the drum loop in the verses was originally influenced by drum & bass, specifically artists such as The Prodigy so it’s incredible to see Shikari, a band we grew up admiring turn it into a full blown drum & bass track. Rou absolutely nailed this remix and we can’t wait to spend the next three weeks touring Europe together. Crank this one loud and dance, this is As It Is like you’ve never heard before… again.”
