More Info:

'Australia-based duo Lunar Disco land on Crosstown Rebels with new single 'Devil's Hands', remixed by house heavyweights Luciano and Anthony Middleton. Comprised of DJ and composer Nicolas Blistene and his singer-songwriter partner Kate Elsworth, Lunar Disco rose through the Parisian house scene but are now based in Australia, producing music that fuses live vocals and rich electronic textures. They veer towards the deeper, more sensual and playful end of the spectrum, while Kate has also been in hot demand as a vocalist by the likes of Deep Dish and labels such as Mobilee. Building on releases via Blond: ish's Abracadabra Music, Kindisch and their own Suck My Disco imprint, late July welcomes a debut appearance on Crosstown Rebels for the release of their latest single, 'Devil's Hands'. 'Devil's Hand' is a low-slung and sleazy take on indie disco. The bass is rough, with wild guitar ri?s adding an extra layer next to the swinging, macho disco drums, while Kate's steamy vocal brings inviting human soul as psyched-out guitars add a spaghetti western-style energy. The track then comes as a 'Dirty Club Mix' by Lunar Disco and Rebellion signee TAYA., opting for a rubbery groove for the back room, with moody bass and electronic pulses taking it deep into the night. Swiss-Chilean minimal maestro, long-time cult underground hero, and Cadenza boss Luciano heads up the B-side as he draws on his Latin heritage to cook up intricate percussive grooves across his remix to lock in listeners. His drums are rolling but heavy, and the claps and hits are layered carefully into an infectious tangle that never let's up. As both one half of Audiofly and on his own, final remixer Anthony Middleton has been at the heart of the house scene for many years, featuring as a vital presence in Ibiza each summer. His remix is sparse, with cosmic synths unfolding over elastic drums and bass. It's subtle but emotionally intense and will make for a perfect late-night trip.
