Demur Unleashes First Track, a Remix of "Smells Like Teen Spirit"
A mysterious new artist launched a project called Demur in one of the most unique and intriguing campaigns we've ever encountered. It started with anonymous emails that were sent to us at to EDM.com featuring propaganda-styled artwork exposing the downfalls of modern electronic dance music.
And now the ballsy artist going by the name of Demur has finally unveiled the first track, a remix of one of the greatest songs of all time: Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" from their iconic album Nevermind (1991). Considered to be one of the most legendary anthems of anarchy, riot and revolution, this song choice is more than poignant based on this artist's obvious ambitions to shake things up.
Check out the propaganda art in case you missed them, and then listen and download Demur's remix of "Smells Like Teen Spirit" below...
