If you don’t already follow the Detroid-based analog mastermind Klayton, now would be a great time to start.
Throughout the years, the producer has consistently shown his ability to make top–the-line music across a vast expanse musical genres, using various aliases to push different styles and narratives.
One Klayton’s most successful endeavors in recent years has been his cyberpunk alias Scandroid, which has been a leading name through the revival synthwave in 2016 & 2017.
Scandroid’s sound is both retrospective and inventive, with the producer constantly finding new ways to reshape the sounds the past (the ’80s, generally). A big part this has come in the form the various covers Scandroid has done, ranging from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” to John Williams’ “The Force Theme.”
One Scandroid’s more popular covers was the Tears for Fears classic “Shout,” found on his Billboard-charting debut album. Scandroid’s take on the track (as well as Blue Stahli’s ultra-funky remix) was no less than mindblowing, taking the song to all-new heights.
A little over a year after the cover’s initial release, Scandroid has pulled “Shout” from the depths once again for one last remix treatment, this time from the mullet-rocking up-and-comer DJ Stranger.
Stranger’s take on “Shout” is a bit different than any other thus far, diving head first into the sounds future house. Though it may not have the same retro vibes as the other two versions Scandroid has put out, DJ Stranger’s remix is the only one the bunch that could play out comfortably at both festivals and clubs.
For DJs that are lovers house music and ’80s pop, this remix is a dream come true. Listen below:
