Track Of The Day: Manic Street Preachers - 'Futurology' (Seiliog Mix)

The Manics are of course one of my favourite bands of all time, which is why remixes of their songs rarely ever have the same impact on me as the unbeatable original versions. But here is a rarity: a remix of a Manics track that I feel improves on the original. For a start, it doesn;t feature that silly line about killing ants. Welsh electro experimentalist R.Seiliog's progressively chaotic take on the title track from the recent 'Futurology' recasts the song into a hypnotic yet dizzying helping of Teutonic flavoured techno. Astonishing. If you like the sound of this, there's a great R.Seiliog track on the Cam 1 compilation released a while ago, and a review of that album from the Monolith Cocktail can be found HERE. Meanwhile you can read my thoughts on the Manics' 'Futurology' HERE.
