Doomed to Live is of course the theme tune to Sky’s Gomorra and just as thrilling are these accompanying remixes to the original’s Rock intensity. With typical excellence let’s begin with Davide Squillace’s two versions, his Ethnik Remix sequences a kind of rare beauty excelling himself with brushes of emotive piano motifs augmenting the brisk drum hits and crisp rhythmic structures, propelling all movement forward. Next, the Techno Remix gives the game away with more intense drums adding a relevant fury. Baldelli & Dionigi’s Nu Disco Remix then confronts history injecting spacey synthesisers into the equation, while contrasting the breezy eighties melodies with a tougher, excellent Dub version. The punchy remix by Lele Sacchi completes the sequence visiting yet another angle to end the combination of Italian artists engaged in the project.
