Satori Drops His Remix Of Leonard Cohen’s “You Want It Darker”



Satori’s longtime goal of creating an official remix of one of Cohen’s records stemmed from a deep admiration for his work and mystical musical style. Shortly after his passing in 2016, Satori reached out to his family intending to honor his legacy through his music. “You Want It Darker” was the obvious contender, given that it was one of the last songs Cohen wrote before he passed at 82. Satori was granted permission and this emotional masterpiece of a remix was officially underway.

Now the Serbian/Dutch producer, live performer, and instrumentalist Satori released the eagerly awaited remix of Leonard Cohen’s timeless haunting masterpiece, “You Want It Darker.” The official remix preserves the integrity of the original record while blending Satori’s deep, melodic electronic touch with Cohen’s introspective and poetic storytelling talents.

The original record reflects Cohen’s poetic soul, rattled by his questions of mortality and faith, which he was flooded with at the peak of his life. The motifs of his youthful inquisitiveness, desire to explore his struggles, and eventual reconciliation with his faith are further propelled in Satori’s remix, which invites listeners to resonate with these themes in a brand-new way. The Satori remix of Leonard Cohen’s “You Want It Darker” is out now on all streaming platforms.
