Then the incredible first EP by Henry Goes Dirty, Seb & Eric’s side project, citing Sonic Youth and Syd Barett as well as Phuture as influences. A bizarre mix of electro-pop-rock revealing the roots of what is now Remote’s identity: a totally personal appropriation of current trends tinged with a certain independent romantism. In 2005, the duo reforms as Jenny Goes Dirty for their first EP on kill the dj. A collaboration with Jennifer Cardini for a cold synthetic cover of Elli & Jacno’s tragic/classic track: “Amoureux solitaire”. Romantism [once again], and a slap in the face. Then Get A Real Job under the name Remote.
The maxi is played and praised by Tiga, James Holden, Tiefschwarz and Ivan Smagghe, and Teaser – one of the tracks on the EP – becomes a timeless underground anthem. Now is the time of Dark Enough. The first album for a music originally meant to be made for maxis. And it damn works! Dificult to talk about as it is more something one feels in the guts.
With a voluntary opaqueness, against the tide of trendiness, they play it heavy and slow, the exact opposite of the light fluffy minimalist clouds. This is a storm we are talking about… and Carpenter is not far off. Dark Enough is about techno and disco meeting on a same dancefloor. The choice is one of a certain roughness, anchored in the ghetto sound of Detroit.
They actually explain it very clearly: “We tried to make a techno that is contemporary, but which doesn’t leave behind its acid house and techno roots, while not giving in to the easy void sound design or minimal flourishes. Dark but not cold. Hard but not insensitive.” And if we didn’t know that they weren’t capable of such a thing it could almost be the perfect promotional text! 2) Russian sludge band from Kaluga formed in 2012. Discography LP: 'Великий Бонг Бухенвальда' (The Great Bong of Buchenwald, 2014) and 'The Gift' (2016); EP: 'Dualism' (2012); SP: 'Оймякон' (Oymyakon, 2013). 3) REMOTE is a band from Paris and completed it's line up in 2010. The band features members of HKY and Quartier Rouge. REMOTE’s music could be defined as a chaotic, aggressive kind of post-hardcore with a hint of dark noise. It's inspired by every negative feelings.
