In the midst of his solo UK tour, DC Gore today releases the sublimely anarchic remix of “Millennium People” by rising alt-pop band, moa moa. The original version of the track was featured on Gore’s politically charged debut album, All These Things, which was released earlier this year via Domino.

Inspired by the 2003 book of the same name by dystopian science-fiction author J. G. Ballard, “Millennium People” is the surging album opener to All These Things. Featuring a crescendo synth intro, its apocalyptic envisaging lyrics cleverly contrast against hypnotic drum and beats. “”Millennium People” is a song about societal unrest at a time when it really feels like society is collapsing in on itself,”  Gore comments. “Ballard wrote the book 19 years ago and yet it feels like it could have been written tomorrow.”

moa moa’s remix of the track, featuring additional soaring vocals and pulsating beats, beautifully intensifies the chaotic subject matter of the lyrics. “’Millennium People’ takes the collapse of British self-grandeur to a neon-illuminated dance floor,”  the band say. “We chose this song as we heard the fun DC Gore was having with every synth and guitar line. We wanted to elongate and manipulate this playfulness in our remix, experimenting with arpeggiated bass, disco strings, and catchy (yet possibly obnoxious) lead lines.”

Gore further comments: “I love what moa moa have done with the remix because whilst the original has a somewhat cool detachment, their frenetic energy adds a sense of urgency to the whole thing.”
