Hit It


Today, alt-J and Code Orange have released new remixes of alt-J tracks “Adeline” and “Hit Me Like That Snare.”

alt-J drummer Thom Sonny Green has long been a fan of Code Orange’s music, which prompted the collaboration.

Code Orange guitarist / vocalist Shade explains, “I wanted to dismantle the songs entirely and completely rebuild them as if they had come from a different world, and that’s what I did. See the world with Code Orange vision.  No boxes, no boundaries, no fear.”

alt-J was equally excited about the collaboration stating, “It’s not often we get to collaborate with heavy artists so having Code Orange step up and give us two amazing remixes is a real treat. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.”

Both remixes are available today via Canvasback/Roadrunner Records & Infectious.  Check out the visuals for the remixes created by Dmitry Zakharov (“HIT ME LIKE THAT SNARE” & “ADELINE“). Artwork for each track designed by Shade from Code Orange (attached).

Zakharov previously co-directed with Shade on Code Orange’s animated video for “Mud” which you can view here.
