Exclusive Remix of Vulnicura!
Björk's latest venture a three-part series of exclusive remixes of her agenda-setting masterpiece Vulnicura, featuring an array of boundary-pushing DJs and producers.
A new remix of Black Lake from Björks ninth album Vulnicura. After playing his breakthrough single Quartz in her occasional DJ sets, Björk asked abstract grime producer Bloom to rework Black Lake in a similar style. The combination of Björks vocal and the machinist thump of its kicks and bass make for a strange but enticing contrast.
"I couldnt believe it when I heard Björk had been playing my stuff at her gigs and I loved Vulnicura so it was an honour to be able to work on remixes with her. With the first one ("Family") I just went in and pretty much created the whole thing in one intense session. I knew shed want me to do my thing no-holds-barred so I just went crazy with it, processing the vocal using it like an instrument. Ive been thinking about making more freeform stuff lately, less club friendly, so this was a perfect opportunity. The second one ("Black Lake") was more of a collaborative process, she emailed me saying shed envisaged the track reworked like some of my earlier stuff so I pulled out the Quartz bass pulse and we bounced a few ideas back and forth, keeping the vocal track more dominant. Its been amazing to work with such a visionary artist, so inspiring." Bloom
