New York duo Cults share a Mike Simonetti remix of the title track to their 2017 album ‘Offering.’
Listen to Christopher Port’s remix of Flight Facilities’ ‘All Your Love’.
Marie Davidson’s new album turns the mirror on herself. “Working Class Woman” – released on 5th October on Ninja Tune – is the Montreal-based producer’s fourth and most self-reflective record: it’s a document of her state of mind, of operating within the spheres of dance music and club culture. Drawing on those experiences, as well as an array of writers, thinkers and filmmakers who’ve influenced her, Davidson’s response to such difficult moments is to explore her own reaction to them and poke fun. “It comes from my brain, through my own experiences: the suffering and the humour, the fun and the darkness to be Marie Davidson.” It’s an honest document of where she currently stands. As she puts it,“It’s an egotistical album – and I’m okay with that.”
The sound of “Working Class Woman” is more direct than any of her previous outings. She still mines the same influences, from Italo Disco, to proto-industrial and electro, but leadens them with a gut-punching weight, making for a record that’s more visceral than any she’s released before. Industrial heaviness is balanced by Davidson’s spoken text – rather than spoken word, which she sees as a distinct tradition – dark, textured soundscapes are counterweighted by statements that carry a more darkly humourous edge than before, making observations on both aspects of club culture as well as more oblique critiques of the modern world. It’s something that’s encapsulated in the driving momentum of lead single ‘So Right’, released alongside a remix from John Talabot: it matches pared back lyrics with a melodic bassline and bright synths, her words sketching out a euphoric feeling that chimes with the music.
Maribou State announce the first in a series of remixes and reworks of their forthcoming album “Kingdoms In Colour”, out today, September 7th on Counter Records.
Released now, Maceo Plex takes on recent single “Nervous Tics” featuring Holly Walker on vocals. The remix – perfected in between road testing on dancefloors in London, Dekmantel Festival and beyond – sees the veteran producer draw on the electro influences that have inspired much of his prolific – nearly two decade long – career. “When I got sent the parts I instantly could hear the vocal over a cool breaks track. Soon as I laid it over the breakbeat it pretty much wrote itself.”
Keep an eye out for Maribou State North American shows to be announced in the near future.
Following on from the release of their positivity-packed ninth studio album Blaze Away, British trip-hop pioneers are today releasing 4 remixes courtesy of legendary Norwegian production outfit Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas, who have spun the original into a cosmic Italo-Disco stomper. The lead remix – premiering via DJ Mag, arrives alongside a dub edit, an instrumental version and a radio edit.
An infectiously upbeat track, the original version possesses an undeniable, instant sing-along appeal. Frontwoman Skye Edward’s silky vocals (lyrics co-penned by Lambchop’s Kurt Wagner) drift effortlessly in, accompanied by blissful acoustic guitar chords. A tranquil, laid back beat joins the proceedings, before a wave of golden haze washes over as it builds and drops.
