HYPETRAK Premiere: Gotye – Somebody That I Used To Know (Gang Colours Remix)

We've heard a great deal of interpretations of Gotye's global monster "Somebody That I Used To Know." With over 5 million copies sold to date, top chart positions in 15 countries, and a massive 180 million YouTube views, this is arguably the biggest record of the year so far. We also know that the Australian artist does not co-sign every single one of them of the remixes. HYPETRAK received the honor to world premiere one remix that has been officially approved by Gotye himself. Southampton's Will Ozanne aka Gang Colours delivers a hypnotic take on the ubiquitous track, even providing an additional dimension to the much-interpreted song. Gotye's new single, "Eyes Wide Open," is scheduled for an official June 4 release in the UK.

    this is shit 

  • I don’t like this.

    Uhm... no.

  • Joan Griffiths

    Don't like this version

  • MerrySea

    I'm not a remix person, but I like it.  Nothing like the original though.  There's nothing like the Winston Musical Fence and I can't get enough of it!  I'd take a meditation CD of it!  It makes me float!

  • Mike_dapice

    I'll pass on this, but if you want a better creative and refreshing take on the song check this version out. 


  • Ehmskiify

    Sorry but, I will stick to the original version.

  • simbakittycat

    tragic, why would he approve this crap.

  • CoRy

    KA KA !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Eakroll

    Check out this "Brazilian Groove Version" 

  • No

    This is THE shit. All the naysayers must not be musically in line with Gotye himself

  • Fluorideshot

    terrible. i don't understand why gotye (or anyone for that matter) would like this. no offense.

  • Amplitudinal

    Having trouble seeing the point of this version. Blips and beeps but not a lot of substance.

    this sucks!

  • Eniat G.N.

    Wow, I was skimming the comments while it loaded, and I don't get all the hate. This is quite cool and refreshing!

  • Foofighters

     That is not very good, I like this one, but the original is the best.

  • allan james

    Love it. Fresh. Cool afternoon Jam. I now like 3 out of a 100 remixes out there of this track. Get remixing the other tracks Wally. Mixed Blood 2.

  • Gredgmt

    pretty sure most of the commenters would've heard the original in the top 40 and have a pretty narrow pop orientated taste when it comes to music. great remix, it sounds like something goyte would like.

  • http://www.facebook.com/joanie.andersonlewis Joanie Anderson Lewis

    No thanks...don't care at all for this version. 

  • Spyder

    Dun like :-(

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003107774267 Brittany Jurisin

    you fuckers are crazy this remix is great

  • VG

    I agree.  This is kind of strange

  • Chickabittie

    sorry, it sucks AZZZZZZZ.  Will stick to the original. Going to go wash my ears out with soap.

  • Mellochello007

    loved it and thats Gotye all over, quirky and kool, thanx Wally :x

  • shut up

    Gotye obviously would approve this because ITS MORE HIS STYLE AND YOU GUYS THAT ARE HERE FROM THE TOP 40 because you think you're so INDIE would know that

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000044815265 Trina Anido

    Gotye is probably tired of hearing all of the covers sounding the same. I love it 

  • Explosion

    A little uneven at the start, and bit off putting. Though the chorus came through and it gradually pulled through till the end, but the start is what gets you interested in song in the first place. So cut out the first minute I should think then it will be fine.

    im feelin this remix, it strays far away from the basic and simple remixes and offers  new take 

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=716606853 Mandy Williams

    Its different,a bit popcorny But my money is on the original

  • no12identify

    because he was taking the same drugs he took making the original video to this song...:S that or they are part of the same label or something....

  • Nata_qwerty_lp

    Fuck This is really great... why they dont like it???

  • Redheadmonster85

    I like everything except the "bop" vocal. Kept expecting Hanson to start joining in. The rest was good. Of course, the original is the best, but I like how they mixed Kimbra's voice. All in all a nice re-mix.  I would like to hear a good mash-up of this song, Kimbra has a great one with Two Weeks by Grizzly Bear and Head over Heals by Tears for Fears. Anyone heard a good mash-up of this song?
