Creature was, then Hercules And Love Affair alumni, Kim Ann Foxman’s début release back in 2010. Released alongside fellow H&LA’er Andy Butler, the track is now getting it’s first vinyl release at the third release on Kim’s own new imprint, Firehouse Recordings. Back with a host of new reMixes, the Creature vinyl also features this updated mix of the tune from Kim herself. Prepare yourself of some deep Acid vibes.
Like the original, Kim’s new reMix is an ode to classic House music, in this case moody, dimly lit, Chicago warehouse vibes. An enthralling seven minutes of undulating synths and burbling basslines, this reMix of Creature is a hypnotic and intoxicating affair, shifting and evolving over it’s length, from dark and growling Acid House to soulful and haunting electronica. A totally enchanting track set to a shuffling House beat.

The lead track from the EP, ‘Rainy Days And Saturdays’ is a beautiful lament over nostalgia that never existed. With hints of electronic Trip-Hop and a moody synthetic atmosphere tempered by a strain of hope in Miss Martins vocals. The EP comes chock with reMixes, including Kim Ann Foxman’s take on ‘Jalousies And Jealousies’ that got support from Vito Aeroplane in his last mixtape and Industrial legends Chris & Cosey’s deep Acid SynthPop version of ‘Anatomy Of A Plastic Girl ‘/
