Songs from the band’s recent LP get remixed by two of dance music’s most dissonant producers.

Near the end of 2014, Brooklyn duo Azar Swan released And Blow Us A Kiss. Now, two songs from that album have been remixed by Vatican Shadow and Cut Hands (power electronics pioneer William Bennett) for a new 12″ titled Azar Swan Variations due May 19 via Handmade Birds.

Vatican Shadow takes stretches ‘We Hunger‘ in a sooty nine minute churner while Bennett fills ‘For Last And Forever‘ with clattering, hypnotic percussion. As different as they sound from the originals both producers wisely keep the focus frontwoman Zohra Atash’s powerful vocals which naturally fit with the chaotic new sounds.
