Museum of Love (Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem + DJ McNany of Jee Day) return with a collection of tracks that bring last year’s self-titled effort from daytime to nighttime, from the art gallery to the club, and from the minimal to the maximal. The Remixes starts off with a brand new single, “Never Let It End,” released last year as a super-limited vinyl-only 12”. “Never Let It End” is a classic DFA slo-motion banger – live drums, a pulsing bassline, and synth flourishes across its eight minutes – classic DFA sounds in every sense – all qualities accentuated and made even more bumping by a dance floor-shaking remix by Hardway Bros. The remix lineup features reworks from a real “who’s-who” of contemporary & classic DJs and producers. Featured are Italian cosmic disco superstars Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi, who turn in two separate remixes, tropical psychedelic shaman Secret Circuit (aka Eddie Ruscha Jr) , LA party monsters Daniel.T. & Cooper Saver, as well as top notch disco producers Bottin, Bjorn Torske & Young Marco. Museum of Love’s The Remixes is released digitally on June 30, 2015 by DFA Records and [PIAS] Cooperative.

Wolfram is really one of the hardest-working folks. Hot on the heels of his DFA debut, he is set to release a trio of remixes, one made and two commissioned by the man himself.
Up first is the Club Mix of “Talking To You” – fairly faithful to the original, but with some added cymbals and claps and a little extra thump to the bassline. The vinyl is cut at 45, so make sure your needles are well balanced, this one is LOUD. The flip is shared between two DFA pals and Brooklyn natives – Jacques Renault and Mark Verbos, and Secret Circuit.
Jacques Renault (Let’s Play House, Throne Of Blood, and constant gigs around NYC and the world) and Mark Verbos (a self-proclaimed Analog Synthesizer Aficionado) turn in an acidy remix that explodes the sonic palette of the original. Rounding out the package is a remix by Secret Circuit (Eddie Ruscha Jr., check out his LP from last year on DFA Alumni Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label) that starts with a heartbeat and ends somewhere out in the cosmos.
