AUDIO: Convert – “Unrestrained Remix EP”
How do you make heavy guitar music like punk, sludge and post-hardcore sound more intense and unhinged? The answer is to run it through a MacBook and create electronic remixes. That’s what Convert did with “Unrestrained Remix EP,” which takes booming sludge riffs like “Concrete Life” and “Watch It Burn” and turns them into dark electronica tracks that sound like Prodigy in a perpetual mosh pit. Each song is remixed by a different underground Milwaukee artist spanning from grime to synthwave. Anyway, zip up your leather pants and turn on a strobe light when listening to this one.
