Has anyone else noticed that NERO has silently been releasing edits right under everyone’s noses? Beyond a deleted tweet that led to rumors of an Ultra booking in 2019, along with Dan Stephens and Alana Watson announcing their side-project a year earlier, the globally celebrated trio has been largely silent on the new music front. Until now. After three long years of radio silence, the Grammy-winning, platinum-selling group has returned with a series of impromptu re-edits.
The latest of which is Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s 1984 hit, “Relax.” The trio holds onto original’s prevalence of 80s synths and disco beats, while adding in ethereal organ chords and those signature NERO electro stabs. It’s a tame edit on an old classic that demands respect from any remixer. Also, be sure to listen to NERO edits of Daft Punk‘s “Emotion” and Tame Impala‘s “Disciples” below.
There are many more edits to follow, which is a welcomed reemergence for one of the most prominent dance music acts of the last decade, and perhaps an indicator of more activity as the band gears up to celebrate the tenth anniversary of their chart-topping debut album, Welcome Reality.
