Christopher Lawrence released a free bootleg remix

As the buzz increased tonight we thought we would introduce the fact that Chris has released a free bootleg remix of U2’s massive single ‘I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight’. We have created a link for the download below.

The single is the fifth track from U2’s new album ‘No Line on the Horizon’. It was one of the highlights of U2’s recent European leg of the tour.

‘I’ll Go Crazy If I Don’t Go Crazy Tonight’ was originally released in the UK on September 7th by Mercury. Other artists who have released remixes include Dirty South, Fish Out Of Water, and Redanka.

Christopher Lawrence kicks up the energy level a notch with this hot new bootleg remix built around a groovy acid bass line and syncopated percussion. Use of the original vocals create dancefloor tension in the build up out of the breakdown. Classic progressive house and trance sounds were used effectively but sparingly to give the track room to breathe.

Christopher Lawrence Christopher says of the remix “being given the opportunity to remix one of U2’s songs was a dream come true. Bono’s voice is a such a signature sound to the band’s identity, I felt it was important to use as much of the original vocals of the song as possible to maintain the integrity of the song”.

U2 collaborated with in the creation of the track. It was first developed by Brian Eno under the title “Diorama” during a break in the recording sessions. Several of the song’s lyrics were influenced by Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. Bono stated to Q magazine that the lyrics “[sound] like a T-shirt slogan to me”, also noting that it was No Line on the Horizon’s equivalent to “Beautiful Day”.
