Belgium’s Orphan Swords craft some of the most menacing modern electronics in the game, shoving vicious acid and shards of noise beneath the skin of burnt electronics—basically a musical version of Tetsuo: The Iron Man, putting it in the category of “extremely our thing”. On December 15th, the Brussels duo will release a free new EP of remixes off their previous EP License To Desire, featuring Helm, Black Rain, Icon Template, Svengalisghost and Prostitutes—whose remix we’re premiering above.
The Ohio-based experimental techno producer chops away the buzzing clang of the original, giving it a slightly more upbeat frame (comparatively, at least) that will upset any dance floor in the best possible way. We’re heavily excited for this one to drop, and you should be too.
