It seems like sacrilege to take a track with as rich and organic of sounds as DJ Cassidy’s “Kill The Lights” and sterilize it with synths and effects. Then you remember that a straight-up disco record wouldn’t work on as many modern dance floors as a future house track would, and suddenly Audien‘s remix doesn’t seem so bad.
