Aurora Borealis is proud to unleash Orphan Swords’ “License To Desire Remixes” LP on limited edition vinyl on Aurora Borealis on May 15th, alongside the reissue of “License To Desire”.
The sonic tangle and entheogenic orgy of the demonically inspired “Asmoday” and the tranced-out “Hooker”, are given workovers by Helm, Icon Template, Black Rain, Prostitutes and Svengalisghost.
This is remix as rite of destruction, the tracks being disfigured rather than beautified for commodification. Awkward, uncomfortable listening rubs shoulders with pounding bass, post-techno hiss squall prevails. And then there’s the superbly dirty fever-dream lope of the Black Rain remix.
