about

The Dust Collision of Swiss voodoo priestess Kate Wax’s recently unveiled album takes its titular inspiration from Switzerland’s world-leading Large Hadron Collider, where sub-atomic particles are accelerated into one another, and the subsequent fallout observed for our universal scientific advancement. The first single to be lifted from said album – title track Dust Collision – is a cornerstone of self-producing autocrat Kate Wax’s personal album philosophy, where humans find new lovers through passing encounters in the night, like particles colliding in the LHC – momentary, exhilarating, predatory, intimate and ecstatic.

And it is of course entirely fitting that this shiver-inducing anthem to the nightlife experience – a heady concoction of soaring vocals, driving bassline and epic strings – should be subjected to the club-friendly remix treatment upon its single release: Ghostly International‘s vintage synthesizer guru Solvent turns in an acidic slice of electro-pop that is just sweet enough to expose a tantalising glimmer of Kate Wax’s latent pop potential, but at the same time just sharp enough to spark the obligatory heads-down acid freakout on the dancefloor, whilst Border Community’s recent Italian recruits Margot take things in an altogether groovier direction with their decidedly on-message take on modern house music, building from a functional blend of rotund bassline, twisted vocals and fidgety blips to quite the melancholy emotional peak. The final slot on the vinyl B-side is reserved for an acapella vocal bounce for the creative DJ’s turntablist pleasure, running us through the full gamut of Kate Wax’s playful vocal dexterity to take in looping spoken word performance art, cold wave robotic vocal synthesis, ecstatic other-worldly soaring disco diva, staccato panting and dead-eyed drone-mantra.
