Human Woman, Iceland’s white-hot electro-sleeze-punk-groovers, drop another stunning release for our delectation on Hamburg’s hfn music.
This frankly quite exceptional remix-album contains 12 remixes of Human Woman tracks. All original versions of these tracks have been taken from the band’s much-lauded eponymous debut album.
‘Great Woman’ receives three previously unreleased and diverse mixes – firstly from the band themselves, made up of Jón Atli (Sexy Lazer) and Gísli (Galdur). Their 9-minute epic showcases the deeper, dancefloor influences of the band, stretching out the low-slung groove into an atmospheric late night trip into the netherworlds of house.
Fellow Icelanders Gluteus Maximus deliver a sleek techno track, stripping away the original completely. Perhaps the most experimental of the mixes is Truffle Shuffle’s ‘Papa Was A Trolling Stoner Dub‘ - a startling slice of scuzzed-out electro-rock.
Elsewhere, this release collects together five hot mixes of ‘Delusional’, the band’s well-received single from earlier this year – reworked by the all star line up of Kasper Bjørke, Vincenzo, Gus Gus, Zev and Human Woman’s very own Galdur.
‘Love Games’ is also well represented, with Captain Fufanu’s Dub Mix perfectly complemented by his magical and unreleased ‘Chill Out Mix’, alongside Bix’s deep and trippy take. Completing the epic package is the also unreleased Strung Fellows Remix of ‘It’s Gonna Hurt You’, a joyous housed-up burner with acidic tendencies.
