After a hugely prolific year for the Local Suicide duo, which has brought us collaborations with names such as Low Manuel and Mijo as well as DJ sets across Europe and Asia, they are joining the Mexican label Duro with a three-track EP as a joint effort with the label’s owner Theus Mago. This Mexican producer comes off the back of a similarly hectic year, most recently releasing the ‘Inertials’ single and the acclaimed ‘Ella’ EP, featuring remixes from Arthur Johnson and Il Est Vilaine. This collaborative EP is a masterful blend of styles, merging Local Suicide’s characteristic catchy techno-disco sound with the darker notes typical of Theus Mago. His signature style is that of freeform, synth-driven, moody techno that brings together intricately interwoven influences from across the spectrum of electronic music, providing a perfect foil to Local Suicide’s infectious rhythms.
Fledgling electronic live act UNDERHER have released their third official EP, ‘Mercy’. Due for release on their own imprint IAMHER, the package includes two original UNDERHER tracks, ‘Mercy’ and ‘Strung’, plus remixes from French production duo The Dualz, Greek Hotworkz label boss Harri Agnel, upcoming Austrian producer dörfler, and New Yorker Allies For Everyone.
The Chemical Brothers have shared “MAH,” a new song from the duo’s forthcoming ninth studio album, No Geography. The track is accompanied by a visual filmed at the band’s recent sold-out London shows at Alexandra Palace. Directed by Marcus Lyall and featuring visuals created by Adam Smith & Marcus, the clip captures a taste of the band’s live spectacle, regarded as one of the best shows in the world.
Earlier in 2018, leftfield electronic DJ / producer Henri debuted on Anjuna Deep with her single “Hiding,” followed by the release of her melodic deep house single “Last Dance,” feat. Imogen Rose. Sofi Tukker’s remix of “Last Dance” came out just before Christmas and so it seems fitting that they should end 2018 with this brooding, cinematic take on Sofi Tukker’s “Benadryl,” the final remix package from their Grammy-nominated album “Treehouse.”
Using snippets of Sophie’s ethereal vocal to punctuate the track, Henri’s remix is driven by a huge brassy bassline, deep melodies and a dark, atmospheric intro, tantalizing its listeners so that by the time all the components culminate and the crescendoing string arrangement comes sweeping in, the remix delivers everything you could possibly hope for.
