Ben Frost announces V A R I A N T remix EP with Regis, HTRK and more – hear Evian Christ's 'Venter'

Icelandic composer recruits a few dark and dangerous characters.

Ben Frost has announced a remix EP to accompany his gargantuan 2014 album A U R O R A, a record FACT’s Maya Kalev lauded as “his most accomplished yet”.

Titled V A R I A N T, the five-track releases includes reworkings of album tracks by industrial techno boss Regis, Australian band HTRK, French artist and producer Kangding Ray, Gang Gang Dance’s Tim DeWit under his Dutch E Germ alias, and young gun Evian Christ.

The EP is out digitally on December 9 in the US and December 8 in Europe via Mute, with vinyl set to arrive in January. Check the tracklist below to see which tracks have been remixed, and hear Evian Christ’s remix of ‘Venter’ below, via Pitchfork.

FACT had an audience with Frost earlier this year to talk about the strange influences behind his latest record, from black holes to Brian Eno.
