The second one is a more darker, deeper track. A fast sequenced melody combined with a dirty kick.

On the B side we have the 2 remixes.

Hush & Sleep Remixed, Enigma. They kept a lot of parts from the original but gave the track a new spin with their signature sound.

1996 got remixed by Wanton! He did an excellent job in making this track into a ravy / industrial banger. Hard hitting kicks, dirty percussion sounds,….

Lone Swordsman
(Chris Carter Remix)

 

Press Info:
Industrial electronic pioneer Chris Carter gives Mute US labelmate Daniel Avery’s ‘Lone Swordsman’ a masterful new remix. Original track was created in tribute to the late producer and DJ Andrew Weatherall.

Hot on the heels of his recent album, Together In Static, and a pair of live shows at London’s Hackney Church, Daniel Avery today shares a new remix of “Lone Swordsman” by Throbbing Gristle’s Chris Carter. The track was originally released in 2020 as an homage to Avery’s hero and friend, the late Andrew Weatherall. Listen to the remix – which is accompanied by a fittingly psychedelic visual – here.

Reflecting on Carter’s reimagining of “Lone Swordsman,” Avery says, “Chris is a true musical inspiration in so many ways, someone who has never stopped creating and a figure whose work continues to sound like it comes from another world. I’m ecstatic to have this one out there.”

“When Daniel asked me if I’d like to remix his Andy Weatherall tribute, how could I refuse,” says Carter. “I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to pay homage. Andy was one of the brightest, funniest people I’ve ever known, I feel privileged to have had the honour of being in his company sharing his countless anecdotes and experiencing his legendary pioneering DJ sets. Who else could play the Pink Panther theme in the middle of a set and get any with it? Andy could… Andy did.”

Press Info:
Following his recent live shows at London’s Hackney Church and the global stream, Daniel Avery shares new album ‘Together In Static’. Out now via Phantasy worldwide and Phantasy/Mute in the United States and Canada, the record was originally conceived for the Hackney Church concerts.

The record has been my own personal beacon of light this year and I’m excited to finally share it with you all following the screening of the live ‘Together in Static’ concert recorded at Hackney Church, directed by Tom Andrew and Sam Davis.

I’m sure I don’t speak for myself alone when I say it’s often felt like the fog has been never-ending recently, but good things are coming. I will see you all on the other side very soon.

Press Info:
Berlin techno luminary, and BPitch label founder, Ellen Allien turns her attention to the romantic darkwave duo Lebanon Hanover, aka Larissa Iceglass and William Maybelline, with this double pack of remixes.

As a DJ and artist, vocals have always been a signature of Ellen’s sound since her first track, using her own voice in her productions and sets. She’s constantly editing and remixing tracks for her own use, playing with voices and effects, to create the exact mood she wants for every dancefloor. These cuts began life as personal edits for her own DJ sets in 2019, appearing in her last Boiler Room and many shows since. They captivated fans of her, and the band, who clamoured for an official release and now those wishes are answered.

The remixes merge the dark touch of both artists to both illuminate and cross pollinate their divergent musical attitudes. Ellen writes: “I’m a fan of Lebanon Hannover – they’re my weekly soundtrack at home, dancing around the carpet with my friends. They display a radical side without screaming, but understated and cool, clever poetry and stories in every song that appeal to me completely. Their lyrics speak to my soul and embody a feeling for me of where I come from. The Berlin of the past, that was empty and changeable, full of possibility from which we were finally able to blossom. Although Larissa sings in a very pretty way, the attitude is one of truth and melancholy, not pretending that the world is sweet and happy, but full of intensity, it’s sexy and truthful.”

For her takes on ‘Living On The Edge’, she pushes up the tempo and adds thumping drums to the arrangement. Larissa’s vocals sit comfortably on top of the club-focused instrumental, which stays true to the original spirit of the song while reconfiguring it for the dancefloor. The melancholy romance is still present, but the energy elevated for body movement. Her explosive 146bpm remix of ‘Living On The Edge’, a digital exclusive, is a vast and perfectly of-the-moment techno cut.

Ellen’s second remix is a techno reinterpretation of ‘Invite Me To Your Country’. Pulsating kick drums and an air of menace pervade throughout. Ellen skilfully piques our emotions, retaining the key motif and guitar riff from the original to great effect. Halfway through Iceglass’ unmistakeable vocals drift in, adding depth and grace to the arrangement.

The remixes are lovingly and respectfully composed by an artist who counts themselves as a sincere fan of Lebanon Hanover. Dark wave and techno have always had a close relationship and these remixes demonstrate how they can be blended seamlessly.
