LISTEN TO ILLENIUM’S SPELLBINDING REMIX OF “SOMETHING IN THE WAY” BY NIRVANA. The remix was created in honor of ILLENIUM’s limited edition “Batman” clothing collection, which he hasn’t issued in almost two years.
ILLENIUM has given a fresh life to a Nirvana classic, “Something In The Way,” which was released in 1991.
“Something In The Way,” written by famed guitarist and lead vocalist Kurt Cobain, debuted on Nirvana’s sophomore album, Nevermind. ILLENIUM remixed the melancholy music into a sluggish trap tune with a distorted drop, eschewing his typical euphoric sound design. It’s the Grammy-nominated producer’s first remix in over two years, and it’s dark, mesmeric, and full of spine-tingling sound design.
Below is a link to ILLENIUM’s remix of “Something In The Way.”
The new remix was created in conjunction with ILLENIUM’s upcoming Batman merch collection, which was created in collaboration with DC Comics and Electric Family. The original “Something In The Way,” as well as music by Alesso, Peggy Gou, and Baauer, was recently included in the soundtrack of this year’s The Batman film.
On Friday, April 22nd, the limited-edition clothing collection will be available online.
ILLENIUM tweeted, “With my Batman collab coming out and hearing this Nirvana song again in the new movie, I really wanted to attempt to put my take on it.” “It’s got a really unique flavor about it, and I had a lot of fun making it.”
