Bjork has launched the final set of remixes from her 'Vulnicura' album, the third re-imagined set to accompany the original version of her album, released back in January.
The four tracks were remixed by New York artist Juliana Huxtable (a DJ best known for her work on the NYC gay scene), Bloom (a Belfast grime artist) and patten (a Warp Records-based London electronic artist known for his exclusive CDR releases).
Speaking of the remixes, Bjork said:
“These are the last four remixes from Vulnicura. I would like to thank especially Robin Carolan for co-curating this with me. It's been such a pleasure!"
“le1f texted me from a sweaty club a clip of Juliana doing a mix of 'Lionsong', so I contacted her and asked her to make it into a proper remix. It's her first remix and I think it's incredible"
“When I DJd for tri angle birthday party I did a mashup of Bloom and Abida Parveen. I wanted the peak of his extrovertsy to meet Abida at her most visceral. I kinda asked him if he'd do a similar thing for 'Black Lake' and was thrilled he was up for it. I really adore his beats and I feel he's got a strong signature on his noises that are really his. He chose himself to take on 'Family' in an impressive way!"
“patten sent me a mix he did of 'Stonemilker' through Robin and I loved it so I asked him if we could put it out”
Bjork cancelled a number of Vulnircura album shows over the summer, explaining the intensity of performing the album, which is based around a recent breakup. Read NME's review of Vulnicura here.
