Some songs need remixing to be great, but when they don't it's hard to see how the remix can be much of an improvement. Standing by itself, The Killers "Runaways" is a great tune. Strip away the drums and guitar and you are left with the booming voice of Brandon Flowers. Add in a slower bouncy synth melody and you have the RAC remix. It's not as fast paced as the original but it's a quality remix.
If you've been following us for awhile now, you'll know what big fans we are of RAC . Never have we doubted that we'd like a new production put out by RAC's André Allen Anjos. And that won't change after hearing his newest remix of The Killers Runaways . In usual RAC fashion, André has managed to make the track all his own while fully doing the original justice. He's stripped it down and lightly dusted it's bones with bouncing beats, spinning a magical jam worthy of all the attention it will surely get. Get your hands on it [...]

RAC are back with another tasty remix, this time a take on the Killers' "Runaways." In the same vein as their signature indie-electronic sound, the track starts out with cosmic synths and a tropical melody as RAC gently morph the rock anthem into a dance beat. The song succeeds because of its simplicity; RAC strips out the wall of guitars and synth to bring out Brandon Flowers' voice. Another good one - can't wait to see what the collective delivers next.

Guest Post By: Heather The new release from The Killers, Battle Born, reflects the band's Vegas roots with a grown up musical sound. Brandon Flowers continues to belt it out like a Broadway singer, but this time with a greater range and precision than he had on previous efforts. It sounds as though he has [...]
It's a grey and rainy day here so we thought we'd start the week off with some heat. Sound Remedy has been growing a lot as an artist over the past year, expanding and experimenting with his sound. There's no doubt he's seen a lot of success due to his persistent, hard-working energy. But what we're really digging about this new remix he's done of The Killers Runaways is that it's a throwback to the old Sound Remedy style that initially got us hooked. His epic step into the meat of the track, where we're hit with [...]
In a circumstance of unexpectedly leaked material, Sound Remedy makes the kind gesture to make this particular piece available, and we're damn glad that's the case. "Runaways" gets done up to result in a pleasantly up-beat and feel-good few minutes, plenty appropriate to kick off one's week...enjoy, but in relative moderation.
Please forgive me hipsters for I have sinned, and I don’t think there is enough Hail William and Maries for me to repent this time. Let me start from the beginning, I like the Killers. Yes, the Killers. The Las Vegas pop band that came onto the scene with the 2004 album Hot Fuss . In working for a radio station, I get exposed to a lot of great and mostly underground music, but when I am alone in my room, you are way more likely to find me dancing around [...]
Sound Remedy continues his rapid rise to the elite crew of remix-focused producers. The vast majority of everything he puts out there for us to hear has been well received, and this is no exception. If I listen to The Killers' "Runaways," I think Bruce Springsteen. When Sound Remedy hears ... Read More
Battle Born starts off simply enough, an Atari-esque metronomic beat blooms into a momentous climax after a guitar-fueled, synth-laden build-up. But, as easy as most of Battle Born ’s cuts seem to rattle off, the band’s fourth album is by no means a simple affair to make. In the four years since their last album, The Killers have weathered a lengthy hiatus and a dangerously close encounter with disbanding that still hangs ominously over the band. It’s very much obvious from any interview how the group’s amity is [...]
The Killers - Batlle Born (2012) 5/10 It’s a musical typhoon but I believe that perhaps the hype was over-inflated, or perhaps the musical prodigies that are The Killers underestimated the scale of the anticipation such a pumped-up title as Battle Born would cause. Known for its remarkable ability to make rock not only survive but thrive thanks to modern touches, the Las Vegas born band – who’s music inherited the punch of its hometown without its superficial glitter - just cranked out the long-awaited fourth studio album. And long-awaited [...]
Los chicos de The Killers están aceitadísimos. Hace unos días hice la reseña de Battle Born , que es su última producción, y me pareció un disco espectacular, que volvió a las raíces y que nos dio a los seguidores de la banda un disco para disfrutar y canciones bellísimas. La agrupación, como es normal, está presentándose en cada programa que lo invitan, dando todas las entrevistas posibles y haciendo todo lo que está a su alcance para poder promocionar la producción. Esta vez estuvieron [...]
