Following outstanding critical acclaim for Destroyer’s latest album Poison Season, we are happy to share the remix for “Forces From Above” by DJ firstname.lastname@example.org (a member of Destroyer and The New Pornographers).
Read DJ email@example.com’s statement on the remix
DJ firstname.lastname@example.org has heard of dubstep. DJ email@example.com is sickened by the organic, human nature of the album version of “Forces From Above” and of the Poison Season feel in general, when the words are so often about mechanised abuse at a societal level. It makes no sense. However, DJ firstname.lastname@example.org understands malaise and being lost in the simple maze (a couple of squiggly lines) of one’s dreary thoughts. DJ email@example.com knows for a fact that “Forces From Above” is about CAMPS, like internment camps and concentration camps.
DJ firstname.lastname@example.org heard this from Bejar himself, muttered once or twice, in his bunk. DJ email@example.com mixes are not interested in release; they are exercises in tension that go nowhere, much like a life. DJ firstname.lastname@example.org dabbles in queer theory. DJ email@example.com mixes on an iPhone; too bad
DJ firstname.lastname@example.org says, “Destroyer’s sadness is no match for mine. Mine cannot be contained. It never has been able to be.” Extemporaneous night is something DJ email@example.com is working on. DJ firstname.lastname@example.org mourns the undanceability of his mixes, but it won’t always be this way.
DJ email@example.com does not believe techno music to be a suitable medium for songwriters.
DJ firstname.lastname@example.org created this mix as a response to the challenge of making an unmasterable WAV file.
Destroyer’s European tour kicks off late this month, including a now sold out date at Islington Assembly Hall on 30th October.
