Moby "The Perfect Life (TRUST Remix)"

Lifted from Moby's most recent full-length, anthemic sing-along "The Perfect Life" has been remixed once again, this time by Toronto-based darkwave artist TRUST (a.k.a Robert Alfons). Not unlike Andrew Weatherall's version of Moby's new single, "The Perfect Life (TRUST Remix)" elects to juxtapose major-key melodic elements with a steamrolling, sub-heavy backbone that adds an undeniable grit and thrust. It's not a drastic reinterpretation, but Alfons succeeds in keeping the original track's optimistic serenade buoyant while simultaneously dragging it into the dark corners of a seedy nightclub.
