“the Brighton producer takes Great Pagans’ original into deep ambient territory, morphing the outfit’s song into a cavernous affair full of dense, amorphous textures that help land the remix much closer on the spectrum to the blissful works of Gas than to Great Pagans’ shimmering pop constructions. “
XLR8R are giving away Bernholz’s ambient reworking of Great Pagans’ ‘Happy Now’ from the forthcoming debut ‘Cupid In Error’ out for release on 20 October.
Decades… 33 years to be exact, have passed since ‘Closer’ was released – just two months after Ian Curtis closed his own chapter – on 18 July, 1980 on Factory Records.
The album has influenced thousands of young men and women, for better or worse, ever since.
To celebrate this anniversary and Ian Curtis’ 57th birthday (also this week on 15 July), we’re offering Gazelle Twin’s cover of ‘The Eternal’ as a free download – limited to 100 only via Soundcloud. We released the Joy Division cover as a b-side to her single, ‘I Am Shell I Am Bone’, way back in May 2011. It was also the first release of our steadily growing catalogue – AGMR001.
