Holly Herndon “Fade (NHK Remix)”

23 Jan 2013 — Henning Lahmann


Our favourite track of 2012 just received this terrific remix treatment, masterfully executed by PAN associate and Berlin via Japan producer NHK aka Kouhei Matsunaga, whose excellent Dance Classics Vol. I and Dance Classics Vol. II were released last year. Matsunaga tears Holly Herndon's original apart and focuses on her chopped up vocals that provide the foundation for a staggering, house-informed bass drum assault that holds the listener captive for almost eight minutes.

Holly Herndon will perform at Berghain as part of CTM Festival on January 31, and at Boiler Room Berlin on February 1.
