Austra, the recording project led by Canadian vocalist and producer Katie Stelmanis, recently announced their third full length LP Future Politics, out January 20th 2017 via Domino. Now, Austra have released a remix by Hyperdub’s Ikonika for Future Politics’ lead single ‘Utopia’.
Stelmanis says; “Ikonika is one of my favorite producers and I was super excited she wanted to do a remix. I love what she did with ‘Utopia’; the new chord progressions are really unexpected but come together so beautifully in the chorus.”
As did Ikonika, who said:
“Good form is ubiquitous. We all wanna share our achievements via social media. We can easily be distracted by it. One lyric I had on loop making this remix was ‘My work is valid, I can’t prove it, but I know’. I always thought of myself as online shy, but I learnt I just can’t be bothered much.”
