UK drums and bass four piece Animal Music have reworked the Killer's alternative rock classic "Mr. Brightside" a d'n'b update, premiered by the folks over at Gigwise.

The remix maintains the frenetic energy of the original track, but plays with its structure and rhythms, putting a pounding jungle drum part under the verse and a syncopated bass drum under the chorus. "Given that this is such a loved and iconic piece of music to start with we are aware that this is a bold move,", commented singer Pete Pocket, "however music and art isn't about playing it safe and we love what we have ended up with." The band also commented that "Mr. Brightside" is one of their favorite songs, which comes through in the way the group preserved much of the original's feel and form.
