About this item

As Björk continues to make waves in the electronic scene, we are now presented with exclusive remixes by boundary-pushing artists and DJs selected by the Icelandic artist.

The ‘Vulnicura’ remix project will be released in very limited quantities for collectors only, as a series of single-sided etched translucent 12” records, each with their own unique etching & die-cut ‘Vulnicura’ wound sleeves, designed by M/M (Paris).

“When i DJ’d for the Tri Angle birthday party i did a mashup of Bloom and Abida Parveen . i wanted the peak of his extrovertsy to meet abida at her most visceral . i kinda asked him if hed do a similar thing for black lake and was thrilled he was up for it . i really adore his beats and i feel hes got a strong signature on his noises that are really his . he choose himself to take on family in an impressive way!” – Björk.

"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-holdsbarred 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." – Bloom.

Available exclusively to independent retailers.
