When it first appeared in May 2016, Dawn Richard's Kingdom-produced Infrared EP was rightly praised by critics for its fusion of future R&B songs, bass-heavy rhythms, and intergalactic electronics. Fade To Mind has bowed to pressure and finally released the previously download-only EP on vinyl and CD, accompanying the four original tracks with a swathe of fresh remixes. These are largely more club-ready than the sweet and seductive original versions, whilst retaining much of the original essence of Infrared. Kingdom delivers his own 'Honest VTX' mix of 'Baptize", but it's the revisions from Ikonika, Rizzla, Leonce and Helix that hit home hardest.
