Mike Shinoda’s stadium rockers aren’t shy when it comes to pushing the boundaries.
Cue an album of remix reinterpretations of the band’s most recent album Living Things, most of them by artists and DJs from Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak Records stable.
Shinoda’s own remix of Castle Of Glass and Rad Omen’s Roads Untravelled are particularly strong but two versions of A Light That Never Comes – originally unlocked in an Xbox game – steal the show, the first with Aoki and the second a stripped back Rick Rubin reboot.
Not essential but enjoyable all the same. Roll on that Hybrid Theory appearance at Download next year...
