Dublin’s finest, Figure Of 8, is back with a brand new reMix! this time the bearded-one is turning his attention to fellow Irishmen Hylo and their Our Krypton Son featuring Never Be Lonely. Released as part of a mixed media art project called Dreamscape, for the time being the track will only be downloadable through scanning a QR code that is part of the accompanying artwork at the Culturetech Festival in Derry between 9/11 and 17/11, to be released on Figure Of 8’s DreamQuest label at a later date.
Musically, their reMixes DNA can be tracked right back through Techno to early EBM and electronic experimentalists such as Test Dept. and Cabaret Voltaire. Abrasive percussive synths and growling, hypnotic arpeggios serve as a nice counterpoint to the stomping dance beat and haunting, yet soulful, vocals. This is one for darken rooms with the strobe light on just a little too long. Intense stuff.
