DREAM KIT releases Dune Year remix EP / Live at ACMI this Thursday for Galactic Nights by blak3b5

Dune Year Remix EP cover by Carl Breitkreuz

Since releasing the Future Tense EP in April, Dream Kithas been wiling away the winter meditating on deep space, drum sounds and the endless ability of sub bass to warm one’s heart. With remixes for Otouto, Near Myth and Geoffrey O’Connor waiting in the wings for release and a stack of projects for new label collective // THIS THING // on the go, Dream Kit dispersed the techno dancehall skeleton of Dune Year – the brooding closing track to Future Tense – to willing remixers.

Geoffrey O’Connor found some time in between releasing his new LP Vanity Is Forever to tune the gated reverb just right and deliver a true remix, juggling and interspersing the rugged original sounds with some bombastic 80’s beats.

Dream Kit collaborator Rambl takes a more drastic approach on his production debut, discarding much of the original and artfully disguising what’s left with a stripped back warehouse rave intro that shifts gears into a Detroit garage vibe right on the 2011 tip. Fans of Lone and Falty DL will enjoy this one.

David Evans, sticks man for This Is Your Captain Speaking and fresh from a beautiful record out on Sensory Projects, mutates Dune Year into an all too brief tribal drum excursion that yearns for an African Future.

Bombastic; Dynamic; Trippy: Three wild remixes straight out of Melbourne. You can download the EP tomorrow from Bandcamp, including the awesome Rambl remix, which you can listen to below…

Dream Kit will be playing live at ACMI, this Thursday December 15th at Galactic Nights (part of the amazing Star Voyager exhibition) with visuals by Blake Byron-Smith and soaring DJ sets by Simon Winkler (RRR). Doors open 6pm, Dream Kit on at 7pm, tickets here

The Future Tense EP, featuring Dune Year, is available now on limited edition 12″ vinyl and for digital download. You can find it in all good record stores, the Two Bright Lakes online store and through iTunes and Bandcamp.
