About this item

Montreal duo Essaie pas return to DFA with a single that picks up where their 2018 album ‘New Path’ left off. ‘Earth’ is a blistering ride through the rave, an amalgamation of techno and trance. The galloping bassline is the backbone of the song and Marie Davidson’s vocals climb to new heights against synth stabs. ‘Corps Étranger’, with its stuttering percussion, is a slow burner in comparison. For the remix of ‘Earth’, Marco Passarani of Tiger & Woods (Running Back, Numbers) doubles down on the Italo disco angle and doesn’t shy away from the more anthemic moments of the original, managing to rework it into something akin to a celebration of this place we call Earth.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: DFA duo Essaie Pas find their inner Faithless with a trancey techno journey on the A-side before knuckling down for some arthouse electro on the flip. Italian legend Passarani steps up on the remix doing a 'Lectric Workers meets Visage Italo romper perfect for the next Red Laser party.
