DJ Afrojack Remixes Thirty Seconds to Mars’ ‘Do or Die': Video
Last August, Thirty Seconds to Mars dropped a 7-minute music video for their single “Do or Die,” which features the band getting lost in the energy surrounding their arena-filled sets.
For DJ Afrojack, “that’s how the story goes” for him as well, so the 26-year-old created an EDM-inspired montage using clips from the Los Angeles rocker’s original video and fusing it with his vantage point. The visual makeover puts a scope on the electrifying atmosphere in the dance culture, and includes cameos from Steve Aoki and Skrillex.
In the newly-treated track, the EDM maestro spotlights frontman Jared Leto‘s soaring vocals by lacing the first verse with a consistent downtempo riff. As the house remix reaches the howling chorus, the Dutch music producer embeds a propulsive synth-heavy drop within the charged anthem.
