Flying Moon In Space release Minami Deutsch remix of ‘Ardor’
Flying Moon In Space are sharing a killer remix of their track ‘Ardor’ courtesy of Kyotaro Miula of Japanese Krautrock band Minami Deutsch. Arriving following recent remixes by A Place To Bury Strangers and Camera, the Minami Deutsch remix is the latest to be lifted from a new 12” remix EP due out January 28th. Out now with accompanying visuals, you can stream the ‘Ardor’ remix below and pre-order the vinyl here.
On working with Minami Deutsch, Flying Moon In Space said: “We first got to know Minami Deutsch through their self-titled release in 2015 and were really impressed with that super repetitive sound they had during that time. It was really cool to see that were other projects out there that were influenced by experimental Krautrock tunes from the 70s. We met during an underground show here in Leipzig that we played together. We played with two drumsets that evening and played for hours. It was a really great night and we hope to redo it again soon. Kyotaro’s remix came out very special. It’s not only a rework of what we did in the studio before, he adds in his own vocals and instruments. It’s turned out to be a very dancy, feel-good track that combines a 70s era disco vibe with a more modern and repetitive electronic sound.”
With over 50 shows in their home city of Leipzig (often live improvs lasting hours with 6/7 musicians on stage) and a couple of headline tours around Europe behind them, in 2020 Flying Moon In Space released their sold-out self-titled debut album – dealing in an experimental blend of psychedelic pop, krautrock, techno and math-rock. With the album’s follow-up in the works, FMIS are now revisiting their debut with the help of some of their favourite contemporary artists. As well as Minami Deutsch, the incoming EP – released on 180g coloured vinyl – features remixes by Camera, A Place To Bury Strangers, Suuns, Xiu Xiu and Warm Graves.
“For us it’s a really interesting process to have a new perspective on the album. While working in the studio you always come to the point where you have to let go and leave the tracks as they are. Through the remixes there is a chance to bring them back to life again. We were thrilled with the creative approach of all the artists involved. They discovered new textures and sounds and put them together to create a new masterpiece. It’s a chance to rediscover each track from a different angle and also listen to how other artists work in the studio. Every single band has its own individual sound and one thing is clear: you never know what to expect. That’s probably the most beautiful thing about working with remixes.”
