The Knife – “Stay Out Here (Kane Roth Remix)”

The Knife will be gone for good soon (rest in peace), but before they embark on their final European tour, they’ve released a few new remixes of Shaking The Habitual tracks. One of them is from French producer Kane Roth, who gave her own take on “Stay Out Here.” “My idea was to make the track accessible to DJs but at the same time to stay true to the song,” Roth said. “I wanted to combine their synth and the vocals with some percussions, a deep bass and a special groove that fits well with the synth.” Listen and read Roth’s full statement below.

The first time I listened to the original track, my thought was, this is a truly amazing piece, the best remix I have ever had to do. I always find it very inspiring working with great sounds that are not mine. I’ve found this project quite challenging and exciting. I was divided by a little fear and a powerful emotion, a little fear can lead you to do your best.

I did several versions but when the track sounded more dark and techno, I started to be satisfied with the remix. My idea was to make the track accessible to DJs but at the same time to stay true to the song. I wanted to combine their synth and the vocals with some percussions, a deep bass and a special groove that fits well with the synth.
