Holy Other "Yr Love (Magick Mountain Deep Cover Remix)"

Born and raised in New York, Harry Bornstein is producer Magick Mountain (pictured above), a lover of deep, dubby vibes and dense, repetitious soundscapes. Also a fan of the dark musical arts is the multi-national Holy Other, and the two outfits join forces here. Bornstein's remix of "Yr Love" (a tune taken from Holy Other's recently released 7" on Transparent/The Pop Manifesto) plays with a few sounds from the original and folds in his own additions over the course of an intense seven minutes. What was once a disturbingly lovelorn ballad from beyond becomes a driving dancefloor number that is equally ripe for headphone listening, as Magick Mountain keeps the original's haunting energy intact with floating vocal snippets, sparse synth rumbles, and a brooding atmosphere.
