“A Whole Other Country” remixed by Reuben Wu, of the popular British band Ladytron, is a new approach to Leitvox‘s single released in the U.S. last month.

The remix of  “A Whole Other Country” gives the track a much more ominous and desolate tone, punctuated by a faster beat than the original. A combination of simple (even a little uplifting), 8-bit style synths in some parts of the track contrast with segments of dark, soaring melodies in the rest of the track.

The original track features the late British singer Gavin Clark (UNKLE) and it is a beautiful electronic ballad that serves as a message of hope for the young people willing to find new opportunities by leaving their country.

Leitvox is a Mexican producer and composer that recently moved to Miami to open his own studio in Wynwood and start promoting his music in the U.S. His first EP, Fall From You, released in 2012, was acclaimed by the press in his country and served as a foundation for its successor Floating Promises, released this year in the US. The album features collaborations with Ilan Rubin (Nine Inch Nails), Gavin Clark and James Griffith (Unkle) Nina Miranda (Smoke City) and Ana Karla Escobar. In addition to the 9 tracks of the album, Floating Promises  has 4 bonus tracks with remixes by Ladytron, GusGus, Son Lux and Nortec.
