Ahead of their new album’s release Canadian noise makers MSTRKRFT are giving away a rowdy remix from fellow French noise maker Mr Oizo – and it bangs.
They’ve also unveiled a brand-new track from the album, ‘Priceless’, which features Sonny Kay of The VSS.
MSTRKRFT’s Al-P explains how the collaboration came about. “Our desire to make a techno record with a punk aesthetic guided our choices for vocal contributions. Some of our initial ideas on who we wanted on the record started to seem like too grandiose a gesture after being away for so long, so we started thinking about records we listened to from our past.
“From a time when were playing in and recording bands that were absolutely punk. The VSS record ‘Nervous Circuits’ was something that was constantly referenced, and the vocal stylings and production heavily admired.”
He adds, “When we asked Sonny Kay to write something he was very enthusiastic, which excited us, and somehow validated our idea of asking punk rockers to be involved in the album. Sonny ended up delivering a masterful composition of word play with an intense performance that was used almost untouched in its entirety.”
‘Operator’ is out July 22 via Last Gang Records.
