Exclusive Remix of Vulnicura!
Björk's latest venture – a three-part series of exclusive remixes of her
agenda-setting masterpiece Vulnicura, featuring an array of boundary-pushing
DJ’s and producers.
A new remix of ‘Black Lake’ from Björk’s ninth album Vulnicura. After playing
his breakthrough single ‘Quartz’ in her occasional DJ sets, Björk asked abstract
grime producer Bloom to rework ‘Black Lake’ in a similar style. The combination
of Björk’s vocal and the machinist thump of its kicks and bass make for a
strange but enticing contrast.
"I couldn’t believe it when I heard Björk had been playing my stuff at her gigs
and I loved Vulnicura so it was an honour to be able to work on remixes with
her. With the first one ("Family") I just went in and pretty much created the
whole thing in one intense session. I knew she’d want me to do my thing
no-holds-barred so I just went crazy with it, processing the vocal using it like
an instrument. I’ve been thinking about making more freeform stuff lately, less
club friendly, so this was a perfect opportunity. The second one ("Black Lake")
was more of a collaborative process, she emailed me saying she’d envisaged the
track reworked like some of my earlier stuff so I pulled out the Quartz bass
pulse and we bounced a few ideas back and forth, keeping the vocal track more
dominant. It’s been amazing to work with such a visionary artist, so inspiring."
