Filmmaker and his Body Musick are happy to announce the release of 6-track E.P. ‘Tracer’ by Stockholm-based duo Harlem Electronics. The E.P. features 6-tracks building on the Liaisons Dangereuses-esque electro-funk and no wave showcased on the duo’s album’ Bait’ for Berlin-label Veyl Records last year.
‘Tracer’ brings down the H.E. sound to a creepy tempo driven by propulsive rhythms that build tension and urgency. Chopped-up samples sourced in a way that recalls German artist Hito Steyerl’s essay ‘In defense of the poor image’ and processed for percussive effect intermingle with focused yet unrushed vocals.
Simultaneously sly, seductive, and menacing, the vocals on ‘Tracer’ mirror the record’s theme of false prophets and the contemporary manifestations of religious hegemony. It’s a tough, teasing, and irresistibly contagious soundtrack to humanity’s ongoing mutation.
From this dazzling release, we premiere the track ‘Salt your wound’; a tasty track with its drilling baseline encircled by trainspotting-like vocals and brutal drums.
