Download a New Remix from Darkstar
- Words: James Eaton
UK downer-pop trio Darkstar was once better known for its forward-thinking beats than its poignant melodies, and the outfit seems to have returned to the former territory on a recent remix it did of "Young Hearts," a cut lifted off the band's own News from Nowhere LP for Warp. The track will appear as part of a forthcoming series of remix EPs, alongside productions from Motor City Drum Ensemble and Zomby, and finds Darkstar working out a gummy, punch-drunk groove that strangely recalls Gerry Read's brand of blunted and raw house music. "Young Hearts (Darkstar Remix)" can be streamed in full below and downloaded for the price of an email here.
