“Since the release of their album ‘Wonderland’ in 2016, Demdike Stare have been recording material for this new doublepack ‘Passion’ – an asymmetric re-imagining of UK club styles taking in frenzied drum trax, shortwave jungle, pinging dancehall and clipped, post punk riddims.” – Modern Love (Boomkat‘s label).

The film you see, hear and feel, created by Michael England, includes documentary footage filmed at a Voguing event in NYC, Blackpool promenade and a Newark, New Jersey roller rink, the end result smudging the lines between live performance, documentary and sonic cinema.

Recommended for lovers of Errorsmith to Príncipe, Dem 2, Jon E Cash, Wiley to Joy Division, DJ Scud, Equiknoxx, Anthony ‘Shake’ Shakir or Bernard Parmegiani… Yeah, we’ll take aaaall of that.

‘Pile up’ is a club annihilator and personal favourite from the album. Click below to listen in full and cop it while you’re there. ‘Passion”s available in digital, a limited run of 500 clear vinyl and a black vinyl addition.
