Darkstar Announce Remix EP

how to get your ex back

Darkstar have announced a new three-track  01484 EP, featuring their reworkings of tracks from their News From Nowhere, along with remixes from German producer Motor City Drum Ensemble.

News From Nowhere‘s “Young Hearts” and “Armonica” are both reinterpreted as exuberant cuts marked by house-tinged grooves, glistening piano chords and hypnotic bass. Meanwhile, Motor City Drum Ensemble takes “A Day’s Pay for A Day’s Work” in a deliciously ominous direction, with its spliced, heavily distortion vocals,  chopped up synths and relentless drum kicks.

01484 comes out October 15, with a second EP, HD7, coming soon after. “01484 and HD7 are the dial code and postal code of Huddersfield and its surrounding areas,” Darkstar said of the EPs titles. ”We chose to use them on the 12”s as the remixes are an extension of the record News from Nowhere which was recorded in Slaithwaite West Yorkshire.”
