Last month, legendary trio Nero kicked off a string of edit releases with a massive rework of Daft Punk's "Emotion." The electronic outfit didn't slow down after that, releasing edits at random intervals throughout the month thereafter, including a take on Tame Impala's "Disciples" and classic 80s track "Relax" by Frankie Goes To Hollywood. Now, the next Nero bootleg is here, and it's glorious.
Travelling back even further in time for an edit of the Phil Collins-era Genesis, Nero's version of "Mama" refreshes a nearly 40- year old song with a clean 2021 sheen. In classic Nero fashion, a dark and synth-driven production provides a nearly cyberpunk atmosphere that fits the trio's aesthetic perfectly.
Collins' vocals still take center stage in the edit, but oscillating synth lines paired with a sexy and danceable rhythm breathe new life into the Genesis classic. Nero's fourth edit in the last month delivers just as much as expected, and fans are hopeful that the clever and refreshing releases keep on coming.
