Flying Moon In Space share Camera remix of ‘Where Lovers Meet’
Leipzig-based six-piece Flying Moon In Space are today sharing a remix of their track ‘Where Lovers Meet’ by Berlin-based krautrock group Camera. Arriving following an A Place To bury Strangers remix of ‘The Observer’ released last month, the Camera remix is the latest to be lifted from a new 12” remix EP due out January 28th on Fuzz Club Records. As well as Camera and APTBS, the EP also sees the likes of Xiu Xiu, Suuns, Minami Deutsch and Warm Graves reimagine songs from Flying Moon In Space’s highly-praised 2020 debut album. You can stream ‘Where Lovers Meet (Camera Remix)’ and its accompanying visuals below.
With over 50 shows in their home-city (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 signed to London-based label Fuzz Club Records. In December that year, their self-titled debut was released to international praise – exhibiting a shapeshifting, fiercely experimental blend of psychedelic pop, krautrock, techno and math-rock. Now, the band are revisiting the album with the help of some of their favourite contemporary artists. On the Camera remix, which sees ‘Where Lovers Meet’ transformed into a piece of sticky synthesised Krautrock made, Flying Moon In Space said:
“We’ve known Camera for several years now - we’ve shared stages on a number of occasions and jam and make music together. Improvisation plays a key role in both bands so it's very cool that we share this approach. We’re both always exploring new sounds and searching for something behind the first layer. As we were thinking of having some of our tracks remixed we immediately thought that it would be a great idea to have them rework our song. And it turned out really great. We really appreciate the punk attitude Camera applies to all of their projects. They’ve turned ‘Where Lovers Meet’ into a bittersweet, shimmering song marked by nostalgic 80s synths. It's a vibrant and inventive version of a track that, beforehand, was more atmospheric and wide-open. Camera took this holy atmosphere and brought it somewhere else without losing context.”
On the EP as a whole, they add: “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 alive 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. For us it’s a chance to rediscover each single 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.”
