Daughter "The Youth" (The Love Thy Brother Dubstep Remix)

So today we're dropping our new warm and fuzzy dubstep remix of Daughter's "The Youth". There were a whole bunch of reasons we were drawn to the track. First and foremost, we love Elena Tonra. The 21-year-old songwriter's music is heart-wrenching and dramatic. The names off her Wild Youth EP "Home", "Youth", "Love"and "Medicine" point to the deep kind of intensely personal themes that are best explored through music. With "Youth", the intensely bitter lyrics, the wildly dramatic percussion and the sparse arrangement were perfect for a remix.

To put our spin on it, we wanted to take it and turn it on its head and instead of angst give it that dreamy quality of a wild but happy youth — the teen years right before that moment when the cynicism of your twenties kicks in. So we layered on all our favourite 80s and 90s elements… electric guitars, gameboy sounds, staccato violins, horns and even a harp breakdown… which has got to be the first time harp has been used in a dubstep track! et voila

Hope you like it Earmilkers!

  • Pretty good song, but as a massive fan of the original. I can't say I like it. Remixing Daughter is like remixing Johnny Cash's cover of Hurt in my opinion.

  • Can you milk someone's ears? Oh, you can milk just about anything with nipples. In all seriousness though, this is awesome light dubstep.
