The stark, sinister minimalism of Australia’s MY DISCO is one of the most genuine and chilling examples of psychedelic music in the world right now. Their most realized album to date, Severe, gets remixed by a pair of producers whose work is equally as grave and intense.
Regis takes MY DISCO’s penchant for heavy repetition and hammers it into nightmarish factory filth on “Our Decade (Regis Mix)”. On the flip side, Lustmord returns – on the eve of his first new album in over a decade – with a 12-minute, slow-burning meditation on the resonant space between MY DISCO’s iconic, pounding stabs. Taken as a whole, these remixes take the deceptively sparse few elements MY DISCO’s music, and push them to a terrifying precipice. It is that terror, that feeling of uneasiness and pitch-black confusion that makes them ideal companions to the original tracks that make up MY DISCO’s aptly named Severe.
