With Ellen Allien’s latest album ‘Alientronic’ in full flight, in comes the first batch of remixes. For Rmxs 1, it’s Terence Fixmer, Introversion and Regal, three artists, three fresh remixes and a special edit. It starts with two remixes of ‘Love Distortion.’ First up is Frenchman Terence Fixmer. His rework gets extra bold percussion that slams down with purpose as a gnarly guitar-esque riff rocks it out.

Next up is Introversion’s take. The rhythm gallops along with beats and kicks. This track’s overall feel is murky until a trancey breakdown introduces a hypnotic motif and takes you into the main body of the track. 

 

The third remix in this package comes from BPitch Control regular Regal. His ‘XTC Remix’ of ‘Electronic Joy’ injects a ravey energy to the original. The percussion is high octane and pumping, while the main riff has a retro feel.

 

Last up it’s ‘Love Distortion (Edit1)’, a special edit of the cut. A sombre intro leads into this restrained track that utilises its power in a considered manner. There’s a tough kick drum, which works in tandem with the undulating low end to get your body moving - but the overall atmosphere is relatively melancholy and muted.

 

It’s out 19 July, check it out below.
