DISCLOSURE REMIX FLUME'S 'NEVER BE LIKE YOU' AND FANS OF BOTH ARE PISSED

"This is not a remix, this is rape"...

On paper Disclosure remixing Australian man-of-the-moment Flume, and his track 'Never Be Like You', should be a homerun for everyone involved, right? Well, no. For some fans, Disclosure's remix  which was posted to Soundcloud today  is the worst thing to happen to them in 2016. 

Disclosure's remix is quite literally flypaper for hatred and warped moral outrage on the track's comments at the moment  with one user, Blowndub, taking it way too far with: "This is not a remix, this is rape", and others, well, they're clearly still in a state of shock. "So confused Disclosure. Weak". 

Soundcloud's comments usually consist of a few catergories, from the classic "First" and "Posted here" to the more usual Soundcloud fodder of "OMG" and "those feels <3". Rarely, then, do the comments crystalise into such wide-spread and universal hatred.

One user hits the nail on the head with: "I never seen a track be so polarising in the comments." So is it really that bad? Well, on first inspection it doesn't really hit the spot; the EDM-ish, detuned foghorn really doesn't work on any level  but it does get better, as Disclosure furnish the rest of the track with their trademark tubular basslines and melodies for something of an anti-climatic finish.  

What do you think of Disclosure's remix? Let us know in the comment below. 

Update: It would appear Future Classic has removed the track, and all the priceless comments with it, from Soundcloud  you can, however, still hear the track in question on Youtube, where the comments are bound to be just as colourful and cruel.
