Demdike Stare complete Testpressing series with fierce 'Rathe/Patchwork' 12"

Demdike Stare have dropped the seventh and final of their Testpressing series two years after it began with a belting duo of tracks to pull the proverbial rug from under the dancefloor.

A-side ‘Rathe’ is a maelstrom of deformed breaks and industrial screech, while ‘Patchwork’ is a more limb-friendly joint primed to carve up the club – essential stuff, especially for fans of Miles Whittaker’s jungle-informed side project Millie & Andrea. Stream both below.

The limited edition pressing includes an insert with artwork by Alex Solman (the brains behind our FACT mix illustrations) and hand-stamped sleeves, with first 300 copies pressed on smokey grey wax. It’s out now on Modern Love.

The duo recently released a composition created for an audio-visual installation at Geneva’s La Batie Festival, which combined old science fiction footage with music from self-regulated synths. Check out our guide to The Essential… Modern Love.
