Since the release of their album Wonderland (2016), Demdike Stare have been recording material for this new doublepack Passion; an asymmetric re-imagining of UK club styles taking in frenzied drum trax, shortwave jungle, pinging dancehall and clipped, post punk riddims.
Passion continues a process they began on their Testpressing series of dismantling barriers between urban realism and fantasy, between experimental, pop and soundsystem cultures. It's an outlandish configuration of avant-garde and ultimately functional club weapons designed and honed for the weightiest bassbins, and also their most direct and fuucked up record to date - a raucous, joyful 9-track smash that comes off like a night on a glamorous, neon-lit bender.
