The title track from Lorn's critically-acclaimed second album "Weigh Me Down" gets some proper 12" remix action. The original version of "Weigh Me Down" is a prime example of how Lorn's sound has evolved - deep and full of feeling, with ghostly atmosphere and driving rhythms. Illum Sphere sees the direction and draws out even more of the melancholy feeling with a subdued remix that highlights that ghostly hook. Next up, Mike Slott brings the attention back to the rhythms with a percussion heavy remix, backed by heavy bass synths that combine with the vocals for a powerful climax, while Mono/Poly takes the tempo back down with chopped guitars and distored vocals for some next level beat slumps. Also includes the dubstep style remix of "Diamonds" by Dolor, a heavy breaks remix of "Ghosst(s)" by Shed and the wicked Lorn original "Karma." Clear vinyl in pic sleeve.
