It’s absolutely fucking ballsy to remix legends like The Prodigy, but Vicetone have conjured up an “Omen” reinterpretation that does well to justify ifs creation. Grounded in the upbeat ethos of the original track, it uses the original’s war-cry of a synth to build maximum tension before allowing the sweet release of a drop primed and ready for festival action. It’s an infectious, anthemic peak that emanates images of a sea of fans waving their totem poles and nation’s flags in unison.
Vicetone’s remix strikes a nostalgic chord for me in multiple ways. I used to bump “Omen” at some point in my teenage years, but I can’t figure out when or where exactly – either way it makes me feel connected to my past which is always a plus. That being said, I do know that its drop reminds me of when I’d watch Ultra Miami livestreams from my couch in Georgia and long for the day I could be there. Those were simpler times when I didn’t realize I’d one day be right in the middle of the industry I idolized.
