The all-star cast of remixers on this album take Blanck Mass's tracks as a template and turn them into something totally new and unexpected.
Favorite track: The Rat (Gazelle Twin Remix).
World Eater Re-Voxed, a digital only release, began as an idea Ben Power, the musician behind the project, had while traveling the globe in support of his critically acclaimed 2017 release World Eater. He contacted some of the most interesting musicians and artists today, and asked them to imbue the tracks with their own sense of meaning.
Power says of the release, ”The theme with this remix EP was to see how a group of other artists visualize and reassess my world sonically and more importantly here, lyrically. The use of human vocals is prominent in my more recent work although I try and steer more towards an emotional language as opposed to conventional syntax, so this was an interesting exercise in interpretation."
The remixes include tracks by Zola Jesus, Naked, M. Lamar and Gazelle Twin.
