The Amplifetes Premiere "Where Is The Light" [MtheM Remix] — Song of the Day
The Amplifetes are the Swedish band bringing mesmerizing electro stateside with their new remix, "Where Is The Light." From its cosmic synth and pinball-like dings to its droning undertones and digitized beats, this tune plays out like an epic journey through a constantly shifting electronic stratosphere. In fact, it all feels a bit like you've found the loophole that separates the real world from the virtual, and you've been thrust head-first into your favorite video game. It's quite fitting, actually, considering the accompanying video game and iPhone app the band have launched to promote their forthcoming Where Is The Light album (due out late 2012). The game has players running through dark and cavernous space terrain, set with the mission of obtaining as many light beams as possible. By campaign's end, the player with the highest count of light beams will win a trip to the Kiruna Space Center on the Arctic Circle. Sweet deal — especially considering the app is free. Spin the song, grab the app, and let the light lead you all the way to the Arctic Circle.
