Multigenre Electronic Music Producer (and one of EDM Identity’s Top 5 Picks to see at Dancefestopia 2016) Mr. Kristopher takes on multi-talented actress and Emmy Award Winning songwriter Denyse Tontz’s“United States Of Anxiety” with stunning effect. Premiered on The Music Ninja, “United States Of Anxiety (Mr. Kristopher Remix)” will be featured on the United States Of Anxiety Remixes EP, due out mid-September.
I structured this remix so that it feels like you’re listening to the sounds of someone’s anxiety fluctuating. I loved this remix because it pushed my boundaries of what I could do with my music! – Mr. Kristopher
Mr. Kristopher stayed true to the original’s groovy vibe, but he turned up the bassline with a bit more energy, as well as a darker tone. He pays homage to the old-school electro sound that paved the way for a lot of producers. He manages to keep things fresh, despite taking a bit more of a traditional approach to this remix. The result payed off, as it is a song that both electronic fans will enjoy, as well as fans of the original who may not be entirely into the dance music scene. Mr. Kristopher’s accessible creation is a great song that plays off the actual process of anxiety that many individuals feel. – Tyler Trew – The Music Ninja
“Recreating Sweet Dreams has actually been a “sweet dream” of mine for years now. I wanted to pay homage to
the Eurythmics & Marilyn Manson, but at the same time add the dark Mr. Kristopher flair to it without disrespecting these legendary musicians. For the first part of this official remix I recreated the famous melody from the original Eurythmics sweet dreams, for the next part of the song I pulled out a guitar and actually recorded Marilyn Manson’s heavy bridge section, and then transition all of these parts into my signature sounds, all while using the Skylar Stecker’s vocals that were sent to me! I recently learned that sweet dreams are made of this, who am I to disagree? – Mr. Kristopher
