We've got a really wonderful and strange collaboration on our hands right here. Legendary German electronic musician Marcel Dettmann, who has been shaping the progression of techno since the 1990s, remixed a track by Slovenian industrial innovators Laibach. Laibach, in case you don't know, founded the influential Slovenian art collective NSK, and thanks to their use of WWII imagery they were accused of being Nazis by the 90s PC crowd.

Dettmann's remix of Laibach's song "Eurovision" layers the group's muttering, militant vocals over some beats that sound like they could score that Christian Bale movie Equilibrium. The song is part of the upcoming Spectremix album, a collection of remixes that will accompany the release of Laibach's bonus version of Spectre, out March 31 on Mute Records. Listen to the remix and imagine you're fighting against an EU police state in the not-so-distant future.

Preorder Spectremix via Mute Records.
