Having worked with DJ Endemix before, Johnny Wore Black has decided he wanted to reach a wider audience with his music. While not mainly driven by commercial interest, the songwriter was more intrigued by the idea to take his music to a different dimension and be able to make as many people as possible listen to it. He likes the thought of his songs being played in clubs and was particularly inspired by Skrillex’ remix on Korn’s ‘Get Up!’.
Although he sees himself primarily as a rock musician, Johnny Wore Black thinks that the beauty of making music stems from the ability to fuse many different elements into one and create something new. Being able to work with DJ Endemix was a way for him to broaden his horizon and step into unknown spheres.
When Johnny Wore Black isn’t creating dynamic sound experiences, he finds a different outlet to release his energy by working as a stuntman.
With online music magazine Metal Temple describing the original version as full of “edgy grooves that make you want to rock around the room”, the new remixes add on some infectious dancefloor vibes. The videos for the Firefly remixes were skilfully recreated from the original animation by Paul Solomons.
The remix of Firefly is out on 26th February 2016
