In advance of their forthcoming album 'Futurology, Manic Street Preachers announce a special 12' vinyl press of the single 'Europa Geht Durch Mich' remixed by Erol Alkan.
Released on Alkan's own Phantasy label (home to recent releases by The Chemical Brother's Tom Rowlands, Daniel Avery and Connan Mockasin), the forthcoming release features two different signature reworks on a limited edition 12' out June 23rd, alongside a digital exclusive with Beatport released June 30th. Pre-order the 12" from the Phantasy Sound store.
In original form 'Europa Geht Durch Mich' is classic Manics and the subtle motorik feel is enhanced by guest vocals from German actress Nina Hoss, and it's her contribution that Alkan leads with on the 'Mesmerise Eins' rework. A singular line is twisted around a techno production that unfolds with dancefloor precision.
The accompanying 'Mesmerise Zwei' rework takes a darker, dubbier and more psychedelic approach with Alkan's production skills shining through in the mind bending way Hoss's vocal is manipulated.
