The new Clark remix album Feast/Beast arrives next month, and it's an album where Clark takes other people's music and remixes it in his own Clark vision. The song Spur above is from Barker and Baumecker, and has a nice Clark spin on it, with the amazing attention to detail and sonic inflections.
"I've always wanted to remix Sam Barker music, we've made a lot of material together. I wanted to do something with the stunning almost post rock melody at the end of the Barker & Baumecker track, so I gave it a kind of night time, hazy muted aesthetic that gets more widescreen and emotional as the tune progresses," said Clark.
Feast/Beast features two discs of material weighing in at 28 songs. It will include Clark's remix of his song "Suns of Temper," you can check out the Bear Paw Kicks version here. Also in on the remixes: Bibio and Nathan Fake. The remix compilation will be called Feast/Beast.
“In some ways these remixes represent the range of music I have released over the 10 years in my albums. But they are more unhinged - there is more freedom involved when using other people’s material. And particularly when friends are involved, it can push you into electric new terrain.
I really enjoyed working with Alma Haser on the cover - I saw her work and instantly found it compelling, I couldn't peel my eyes off of it. I love the idea of exploding hands and eyes that spread out in macabre yet meticulous detail you can almost touch. Music has always been a tactile thing for me - fleshy, substantial. Alma's work perfectly matches that aesthetic.”
