Irish duo Solar Bears – fresh from releasing their critically acclaimed third album ‘Advancement’ earlier this year – have received the remix treatment from seminal DJ, producer & IDM Techno forefather Andrew Weatherall.
It’s a momentous pairing. Both Solar Bears and Weatherall are masters of experimental analogue and digital production techniques, both striving to reinvent and challenge the electronic music form. A testament to their affinity, Solar Bears were in turn asked to remix ‘Kicking The River’ – a track taken from Weatherall’s latest album Convenanza.
Phonica has the honour of premiering Andrew Weatherall’s reimagining of ‘Separate From The Arc’ – ‘Advancement’s’ climactic, swirling & masterfully cathartic closer – Weatherall delivers a leftfield, darker-toned re-shift, preserving the track’s central energy whilst propagating and expanding its percussive elements via glitched-out rhythms and syncopated nuances.
‘Separate From The Arc’ – The Andrew Weatherall Remixes is due for release on July 29th 2016 – available on 12” vinyl (limited to only 300 copies) and also digitally. You can preorder your copy right here to avoid missing out.
