Check Out Elyse Rich’s Take On Steady Rollin – When The Judgement Comes

When Elyse Rich was drafted to implement a DJ friendly version of ‘When The Judgement Comes’ by Wide Awake Recordings and Steady Rollin, you can only assume that any notion of starting with a formula or tried and tested method would be of little use when trying to fuse genres that sit so far apart in the spectrum. That is the very reason why this remix deserves to be appreciated and listened to with a discerning ear, especially for those that appreciate the production process and how electronic music construction is an artform that derives from minds that strive to break traditions and expectation. The way that Elyse Rich deals with this remix task is highly original and showcases a real understanding and appreciation of the nuances of genre.

Elyse Rich took the original and thrusted it into a new dimension of electronic bliss via a full throttle 303 acid line which replaces the prominent centre-stage elements of the original and teleports the atmosphere of the original into something entirely dancefloor-centric. As to be expected with a remix that crossed genres in this most unexpected fashion – it’s mainly Fernando Poma’s original vocals that survive the remix process as implementing other acoustic instruments from the Rock and Blues world is a real genre-bending task – but Elyse somehow manages to even work in the guitar riffs, stacked with synths and electronic basslines without ever sounding out of place, which is easier said than done.

You can hear Elyse’s production process shining through from the fundamentals of the source material and where creative decisions have been fostered to transform the remix into something new. Interpreting new revisions of the original and letting those outcomes dictate the momentum of the project results in a version of the track that doesn’t really conform to any particular restraint of sub genres – but breathes easily and goes where the music and creativity wanted to flow. This is what remixing is all about when done well.
