Darkstar -Civic Jams Remixes


Civic Jams Remixes

Release date: August 07, 2020
Label: Warp Records
A photonegative of a dance record shaped by a dialogue between shoegaze atmospherics and UK bass music's 'hardcore continuum'. We've tried to look at the juxtaposition of being comfortable in an often claustrophobic era of unrest both politically and culturally. Tangible space is where this album focuses - it's about having the last warning on a tax bill and going to a rave. It's resigned to having a drink while Brexit blares out in the background. Being able to enjoy the sun while another 0845 number rings out on your mobile for god knows what. We wanted to look at singling out those moments when you balance the everyday f*ckery you find yourself in with being in a place or a community that resonates with you and eases the burden. We've trivially written about debt, f*ck it, think about it tomorrow. Explored Brex-IN rather than Brex-IT, imagine joining rather than leaving. Observed how comforting it is having a local to take the edge off while you chat sh*t to your mate and tried articulating if all of this was any different - would it be as graceful?
