REVIEW: LOSERS - This is A War (Remixes) out on 61seconds records

LOSERS have quietly taken Hollywood TV and film by storm, seeing their music used by Game Of Thrones, Hercules, CSI, Reign, and Michael Bay's Black Sails among others. 

Made up of Tom Bellamy (ex-Cooper Temple Clause), Paul Mullen (ex-YourCodeNameIs:Milo/Young Legionnaire), Eddy TM (DJ/new music radio and club guru) and Dean Pearson with years of history across a huge range of musical landscapes, LOSERS are the rarest of species, a band with no safety net and no conformist formula to follow. Their previous material has crossed over a huge range of styles and genres with their earlier dance driven material developing all the way into the more rock driven and poignant emotive output of their previous album.  Now, LOSERS are back with another more developed new outlook, as a new band, and more importantly, with their new single ‚This Is A War’ taken from their forthcoming album ‘How To Ruin Other People’s Futures’ (release on Sept. 9th). 

Now it is getting even more exciting for you electronic lovin’ peepz out there… None other than Berlin based, and multi-instrumentalist studio wizard Chi Thanh has taken ‚This Is A War’ to show his remix skillz delivering a solid four to the floor tech house pulse-n-build version that gives Paul Mullen's soaring vocal a chance to shine even more (a Dub mix is included as well), while DJ Hyper has made the tune his own with a genre defying mix, laced with cinematic piano, classic amen breakbeats and brought out LOSERS underlying epic qualities. Fans of bass music will find something to love here. Enjoy!

Taken from the album How To Ruin Other People's Futures.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]The incredible LOSERS present their exceptional single This Is A War. While the original is a superb industrial electronic production with indie rock touches and influences from The Prodigy to the Chemical Brothers coupled with melancholic moody songs, the remixes are absolutely stunning and highly recommended. Firstly the beloved Chi Thanh provides the deep melancholic tech house version packed with epic strings, cinematic synths, brooding basslines, rolling tribalish grooves and haunting atmosphere that will transfer you to the other side. Magical dreamy production with so much strength and  dynamism that pushes you higher than you could ever think and raises the standards for other producers to reach in the future. Spiritual sacred, inspiring and mind-opening Chi Thanh confirms himself as a gamechanger.  Hyper Remix  is dark dubstep meets drum n bass version with heavy vocal distortions, epic cinematic strings and massive wobbly aggressive in your face uncompromising bassline. This is Future Hit Guaranteed.#PureGold Love IT[/content]
