Having established the C.A.R. project with a clutch of EPs, former Battant chanteuse and all-round coldwave starlet Chloe Raunet will release her debut album under the alias later this year. Before then, two tracks from the album - "Idle Eyes" and "Angelina" - get the remix treatment. Roman Flugel indulges his new wave fantasies with a rather bizarre but quite brilliant remake of "Idle Eyes" - think warped bass, cut-up rhythms and relentless synth melodies - before Planningtorock lay down a more straightforward leftfield electronic disco take on the same track. The Manfredas instrumental version of "Angelina" chugs hard, occasionally breaking down into delightful synth strings and winding melodies, before Benedikt Frey drops a dark, throbbing, acid-flecked take on "Idle Eyes".
