Franz Ferdinand have shared a pair of remix bundles of Always Ascending, the title track from their much-acclaimed fifth album which was released on Domino in February of this year.
Available from 12th July, the first package includes remixes from Cassius and Prins Thomas and a Nina Kraviz House mix. The second, titled Nina Kraviz v Franz Ferdinand, features the Nina Kraviz Techno Mix and the Nina Kraviz Late Night Remix.
For the ”˜House Remix, Nina creates an escalating swirl of shuffling percussion and funked up bass full of cathartic vocal stabs ”“ a nod to 90s house, but altogether much weirder.
For the second bundle entitled Nina Kraviz v Franz Ferdinand, Nina presents two disorienting doses of bumping techno. ”˜Always Ascending (Late Night Remix) is a stripped back roller full of murky vocals and glistening computer glitches, whilst the ”˜Techno Remix spirals through a dark warehouse punctuated by unnerving fragments of speech from Nina.
Vinyl lovers should look out for FF vs NK remixes 12”³ coming soon.
