Torontonian ElectroPop chanteuse Austra is gearing up for the release of her brand new EP. Titled Habitat the new one will come not only in digital format, but also in a limited run of 500 12”s. Following on from her last single, Hurt Me Now, itself taken from the amazing Olympia album, Habitat sees Katie Stelmanis returning to her more ethereal roots whilst injecting a little Deep House flair.
Long time live favourite, Habitat is an undulating, tribal epic. Moody and enigmatic, the bass rumbles, the kick drives and the uneasy industrial instrumentation rattles around the track creating a magical and futuristic soundscape. Katie’s haunting vocals temper the track’s edge and instilling a cinematic, narrative, feel. A timeless slice of electronic music.

Ready for something bassy and boomy? Here’s Belgian electronic Maestro A.N.D.Y.’s reMix of Anna Lunoe recent single Breathe. A.N.D.Y.’s giving the track away as he’s got a lot to celebrate. Being signed to Sony Music, handled by Live Nation and a string of festival appearances added up to a killer 2013 for the man. He’s particularly Belgian reMix is the perfect way to end the year.
Kicking off with a early Electro beat, loaded with B-Boy vibes, the track soon charges head first into the realms of mid-80s Belgian EBM. Clanging Industrial percussion and, metallic, sampled riffs conjure up a back-clad stomp which you would thing contrasted with the tracks House roots, or the the big piano House breakdowns in the reMix, but it really doesn’t. Add a sprinkling of Acidic burbling and you’ve got a melting pot of electronic awesome.
