Deftones - Diamond Eyes album artDeftones have always had a sound that is broader than the metal tag they received thanks to their nu-metal roots and continued grip on the genre. Two genres in particular that have helped their music be both melodic and hypnotic are dream pop and shoegaze. It’s fitting then that M83 would decide to remix Deftones’ first single, “Rocket Skates,” from their new album Diamond Eyes. The remix does a great job of setting Chino’s vocals to buzzy synth lines, but this remix isn’t just a club banger. Somewhere along the way, the song takes off and becomes an intense, electronic march, employing an array of characteristic M83 organ tones and vocal samples. Though a bit ridiculous to be my Track of the Day I figured it’d be a nice way to commemorate the May 4 release of Diamond Eyes.

I like this song, but I'm not a big fan of the remix.

It's really weak, almost brings out a crunk vibe.

Some of the synths are obnoxious sounding, but I think it's decent enough. Maybe it's just because the vocals are so excellent, but meh whatever.

The vocals are made even worse with M83's music.

I don't understand how this was mentioned as a "club banger"

I agree, the track is just full of broken beats, nothing really solid.

Excellent...listening it for the 4th time. I wish the original should've had a such a melancholic vibe aswell.
