LISTEN: Soft as Snow's 'Glass Body' EP is remixed
Norwegian duo Soft as Snow return to the label with 'Glass Body Remixed', a collection of reworks that engage with their futuristic, experimental electronic pop. Italian techno impresario Lucy (of Stroboscopic Artefacts) drives ‘Halo Heart’ straight to the dancefloor (listen on Resident Advisor), while Gang Gang Dance’s Brian DeGraw capitalizes on the tripped out, weirdo aspects of the duo’s distinctively synth-based sound ("Although the remix is made up of such surging, bright sounds, there’s something natural and organic about the whole thing," say Tiny Mixtapes), crafting a bouncy, wholly new approach to ‘All Our Beasts’. Side B finds Factory Floor’s Gabe Gurnsey giving ‘Glass Body’ a 7-minute full-fledged acid house rework (which "sounds like an interstellar laser war that somehow turned into a dance battle," according to Stereogum), before Estonia’s Maria Minerva steps in to loop and elevate the vocals on ‘Black Birds’ and bring the EP in full circle straight back to its experimental pop roots (as debuted on FACT).
