Two-piece band Lea Porcelain released their new album Hymns To The Night in June. The singles have started to emerge and “Loose Life” is a getting a hefty batch of remixes that includes one from German producer Julien Bracht and one of the members of the group. The Frankfurt-born producer takes the original and turns it into a dark and foreboding techno track.
“Loose Life” gets turned into a very different piece of music with this remix, perfect for Halloween. Bracht takes the vocal and gives them a minimal part in the track, adding them disparately as it echoes in the background over white noise, percussion and distorted synths.
“I did this remix a while ago, when we first came up with the idea of letting Roman Flügel remix our track ‘Loose Life.’ It's very different to the other 3 remixes on the EP and it feels like the right missing link,” says Bracht to Magnetic.
“It's rough, it's ravey, it's industrial and it feels like ‘Julien Bracht’ with the feeling of Lea Porcelain. I tried this one after a festival we played with Lea Porcelain this summer, when I had the chance to play a techno set with our live drummer Jan. It was a really surprising moment and my remix of ‘Loose Life’ was a highlight of the set. I felt it and the people felt it too. I hope that people love this combination. I heard some comments of people that it reminds them a bit of Nathan Fake together with Boards of Canada... But I leave it up to you! Love.”
The remix will come out tomorrow as part of a larger package that includes others from Thom from alt-J, Scuba, Ruede Hagelstein & Amin Fallaha.
