Ladytron’s Daniel Hunt says, “When we made our last studio album, Gravity the Seducer , we were conscious that although we wanted to make a slightly different type of record, going further into the more atmospheric threads we had experimented with in the past, that our soul was essentially disco, and that we would also make a more upbeat, parallel version of the record in collaboration with a dozen approximately producers we admired. ”
The four paths premiering here show how far the particular producers pushed the source material. For instance, the Tarsius remix of “White Gold” has a more aggressive thumping than the original, making it both threatening and suitable for the club. Whilst “White Gold” is more anchored towards the rhythm, SONOIO presents “Transparent Days” in a significantly louder, dirtier combine, highlighting Ladytron’s shoegaze influences.
Ladytron has constantly pushed their own boundaries from record to record. Gravity the Seducer Remixed shows how far other artists can push it, and that turns out to be pretty far indeed.
