Even though Steve Aoki has an electronic approach to music, he’s no stranger to remixing some of alternative rock’s biggest names. Aoki shared his remix of My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome to the Black Parade” today, which arrives in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the band’s hit album The Black Parade.
Gerard Way’s vocals remain front and center, but Aoki fuses his particular brand of hype-electronica around Way’s voice, so that My Chemical Romance’s alternative rock sound takes on a greater EDM quality. As a result, the already anthemic song reaches new heights. Aoki’s particular bass drop works well with Way’s voice and My Chemical Romance’s guitars.
