After hearing Kotchy's mix of Empire of the Sun's 'We Are the People' a while back BlackPlastic has been looking forward to Kotchy's EP I'd Have To Be High and it is now out.
Off of the EP, 'A Superstar' is a sleazy mishmash of styles - one minute it's Prince getting frisky with a back-alley garage punk track and the next minute it turns into some seriously heavy bassline action. It's schizophrenic and doesn't know what it wants to be and highlights Kotchy as one to watch for the future.
Haily from Canada but now based in Berlin, duo HRDVSION have also had a stab at remixing the track and the result is a little more focused and possibly even better than the original. The influence of their new home has clearly influenced their sound with a dark techno sound rearing its head on this remix - the result is a paranoid, glitchy, sleazy track that manages to sound both credible and accessible.
