Earlier this year, London crooner Genuflex (pictured above) released his "The Last Gods" single via Federal Prism. A dark and pulsing pop song lined with screeching textures, the track has now been given a remix treatment courtesy of fellow London trio Eaux. In its hands, Eaux reshapes "The Last Gods" into a more understated production, softening the original tune's edges in order to fit them into a more heavenly assemblage of active synth lines and bathing them in rich ambience. Likely the result of improvised manipulations, the remix eventually breaks down to a beatless mass of reverb-laden vocals and distant loops, which fade into the bell-like drones and restless electronics that appear in the rework's closing moments.
Set to appear on an upcoming remix 12", a full stream of John Talabot's rework for Bicep's "Satisfy" has surfaced, along with a free download of the Barcelona artist's "AltMix" of the track. Read more »

Miyake will join the likes of Todd Edwards, Visionist, and DJ Haus at Rinse FM's upcoming party, a flier for which can be seen after the jump, while more information can be found here. Read more »
