Bassjackers just dropped an official remix for Steve Aoki's "Darker Than Blood," which featured long-running alternative rock band Linkin Park. In an interview with Wired, the EDM duo discussed their process working on the remix, and how they arrived at that signature Bassjackers sound.

"For the 'Darker Than Blood' remix we started by loading the stems from the original in FL studio, which is the DAW [digital audio workstation] we use. We check all the stems and select the parts we think we’re going to use for the remix. After introducing the original theme in the breakdown with some extra additions and changes on our side, we switch to a buildup to the drop, this is where we bring that Bassjackers flavour into the remix."

The new remix retains a lot of the core material from the original, while infusing wild electro blips and massive big room leads, set to a pounding four-on-the-floor beat.
