Reptile Youth

Black Swan Born White

 

After the explosive statement of intent that was their debut 7” ‘Speeddance’, Reptile Youth are back with a vengeance – and this time their laser intensity is aimed firmly at the club. The Danish duo drop “Black Swan Born White Remixes” featuring three sublime cuts of hypnotic house - their second single taken from their upcoming album release on hfn music.

Experienced house-meisters Terranova bring the late night underground vibe to the original – providing two stunning mixes. The ‘Terranova Remix’ submerges Mads Damsgaard Kristiansen’s evocative voice into a narcotic groove, teasing out the new wave vocal influences and steadily building the tension into a dancefloor burner.

Terranova also supply the more stripped down dub version, taking the track in to even deeper territories – a depth bomb sure to find its way into the record boxes of many after-hours DJ – late night body music for the elegantly wasted.

The B side is given over to edit-master-turned-house-innovator Mark E, who provides one of his signature journeys, the track building like Lego over seven incredible minutes. A tightly wound groove is propelled by Esben Valløe’s insistent bass, before waves of synth, guitars and robot vocals push the whole thing over the edge - psychedelic, euphoric and epic.
