FRESH JUICE: MANSIONAIR – EASIER (ILJUSWIFMO REMIX)

By February 9, 2017 No Comments

Mansionair are doing some great things in the pop sphere right now, but trust IljusWifmo to be the ones that take them a trip into the depths of electronica. The Sydney duo stripped their fellow Sydneysiders’ atmospheric slow jam, ‘Easier’, away – leaving only the bare bones of its former self. In almost a Frankenstein kind of way, IljusWifmo then build it back up with new limbs, organs and flesh – but it’s all different, deformed in a way. The airy tones, are instead drenched in thuds of industrial distortion, and the simplistic gorgeous beat is replaced with skittering percussion and low, pulsating bass. The vocals are now just a whirling whisper, ghostlike even. What once was built in clarity, is now dripping in texture. Downtempo industrial sounds and sweeping synths – alongside the likes of Melbourne’s Null, IljusWifmo are ushering in another wave of darkness within electronica. This remix is a true monster. A true beautiful monster.

Mansionair’s ‘Easier EP’ is out now.
