HEALTH ‘Disco2′ out in June

05:27 PM

It has been an open secret for quite a while now but today the dear City Slang confirmed that HEALTH will release the second issue of their ‘remix disco series’ with Disco2 this summer. The LP will of course feature numerous remixes of tracks from the band’s last year’s stunning Get Color album and with CFCF and Pictureplane to remixers from the first HEALTH/DISCO LP are on board again joining a list of some of the hottest rising talents across the globe including Small Black, Javelin (both Brooklyn-NYC), the fantastic and mysterious Salem, British electronic favourite Gold Panda and Tobacco (Tom Fec from Black Moth Super Rainbow) among others.

Too, HEALTH got not only together with the infamous Crystal Castles for another remix (of “Eat Flesh”) after the surprising success of the CC’s Crimewave-re-edit, but went to studio with legendary producer Alan Moulder, who produced U2’s Pop as well as albums for the likes of Jesus and the Mary Chain, Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins. The result is the new HEALTH single “USA Boys”, which will open Disco2. See the complete tracklisting, two downloads and release dates below:

HEALTH “We Are Water” Azari & III Remix

01:25 PM

HEALTH from L.A. are almost definitively our favourite band (especially live!) and “We Are Water” is probably the best song on their recent album Get Color. Though, it does not bother us, when the Canadian duo Azari & III transfer only a very slight bit of it into their new remix of the track. After all their re-worl easily conforms with HEALTH’s general idea to take their alien-like feedback noise / sound wall, amplifier and drum orgies to the disco. And here we’re talking about late night disco at its best!

Too, its a some pastime while waiting for the release of the live footage shot in Leizpig, Germany, with HEALTH playing Get Color track-by-track.  Oh, and by the way: we got to this lovely piece, which appeared first on Mola Super Poco, through James Penycate (follow him, it’s a link to his Twitter profile).
