The Remix: Apoptygma Berzerk - Mourn (Mesh remix)
Here's a great Mesh remix of Apoptygma Berzerk's "Mourn" from the otherwise execrable recent album of covers and remixes Sonic Diary (Sonic Diahrrea?). Oddly enough this is a very successful attempt to do what Apop has been flailing at for a few records now, that is to find a crossover point between their EBM roots and stadium alternative rock. Kind of hard to figure out how much of that success is attributable to Mesh's efforts versus what they had to work with. The vocals sound rerecorded from the original version, I certainly wouldn't be surprised to find out that El Grotho and company were redoing all their older hits in their new style. At any rate, this is probably the best sounding thing they've had anything to do with since Welcome to Earth, hopefully it'll be making it's way to a playlist near you soon.
