Three tracks from Mount Kimbie’s Love What Survives are getting the remix treatment from Nina Kraviz, Ellen Allien, Marcel Dettmann and Gerd Janson. The first out of the blocks is Kraviz’s ‘Main Mix’ rework of “Blue Train Lines,” which dropped last week.
The Russian DJ’s remix is almost unrecognizable from the original. She pretty much ditches the live drums, King Krule’s vocals and Mount Kimbie’s indietronica-leaning production in favor of dancefloor-ready techno grooves. And at eight minutes long, the remix is a dark, gritty journey into the underground.
Kraviz’s ‘Main Mix’ features alongside two of her other reworks of “Blue Train Lines” on Love What Survives – Remixes Part 1, which will be released on May 4. Part 2 will drop the following week, and sees Allien take on “TAMED,” and Janson and Dettmann put their spins on “Four Years and One Day.”
