Erasure "Sacred" (Chris Cox remix)
Published Jan 26, 2015Electro-pop professionals Erasure have passed the torch to a few friends on an upcoming remix EP behind The Violet Flame's "Sacred." One of those revamps comes from Grammy Award nominee Chris Cox (Katy Perry, Avicii, Cher), whose house-spiked interpretation can be streamed ahead of the set's March 17 due date through Mute.
The song plays pretty true to the original, with a four-on-the-floor beat pounding behind a symphony of synths sounds, various electronic textures and Andy Bell's devotional coo. The beat pumps earlier on in the redo than the original, though, and maintains the pulsing theme the whole song through.
The rest of the remix release will feature Phil Marriott & Rich B, Black Light Odyssey, Vibora Park, 88Ninety and more.
