Best known for his splicing of austere techno and severe post punk, erstwhile Sandwell District member Juan Mendez aka Silent Servant has blindsided us with this heat-hazy remix for Lust For Youth. The Copenhagen-based project—led by Hannes Norrvide but now extended into a trio—have so far been associated with the city’s thriving punk scene. Their forthcoming album International suggests a more fleshed out sound than the primitive synth-driven punk of old, however, with Vår‘s Loke Rahbek joining the line-up along with Malthe Fischer. Here, Mendez redirects the title track’s electro-pop energy into a slowburning body high. Be the first to check out the exclusive EB premiere of the track, from the International Remixes EP, which comes with the LP version of International. The digital remix EP will also be available with deluxe digital version of the album. LFY tour dates below.
