Claude VonStroke Gives Disclosure’s Omen A Tech House Twist


Underground house heavyweights like Claude VonStroke seldom remix songs that receive significant radio play, but it looks like even he couldn’t resist the allure of Disclosure’s “Omen.” The Dirtybird label head has released his own version of the track this week with a tastefully tech house inclination, making for one of the more imaginative remixes we’ve heard.

VonStroke’s version of “Omen” makes a short snippet of Sam Smith’s iconic vocal from the original its centerpiece, building the structure of the rest of the song around the rhythm of its syllables. An acid house squelch accompanies pitch shifting and other effects, resulting in a track that sounds as unique as what you would expect from VonStroke.
