I’m not going to pretend that any of you are familiar with the original “Contrast” as performed by the German band Microtrauma, and that’s probably because the song isn’t even out yet. But while you cannot listen to the original track, you can listen to UK-based Max Cooper’s phenomenal remix of it.

The track immediately hits you with strong beats that hold true for the whole track, and—at least in my opinion—vaguely resemble the work of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross for the fantastic The Social Network soundtrack. While there is no vocal work or any lyrics to speak of, the track possesses a certain measured, but elaborate beauty to its arrangement. Perhaps one of the most phenomenal things about this remix of “Contrast” is how versatile is. While the strong beats could easily place it in a club environment, the dulled down siren in the background practically allows it to go anywhere. It’s a beautiful piece of music that I wouldn’t mind listening to on repeat as I work or travel.
