Dan Curtin remixes Galcher Lustwerk on new split 12”, ‘Can’t Believe’
Mix is named after the freeway that runs through Ohio
Arriving after a flurry of creativity from Lustwerk – including the Information LP, ‘Proof’ EP and ‘Information (Redacted)’ LP, all released earlier this year – Curtin’s remix of ‘Can’t Believe’ now appears on a new follow-up 12” via the Ghostly label.
On ‘Can’t Believe’, Lustwerk – an outspoken critic of the music industry – channels his distaste for the rat race in favour of living his life the way he sees fit (“saw it, didn’t want it”).
With driving also being a core inspiration for his music, Lustwerk maintains that the “hypnotic activity” is an essential part of the formation of techno, and is irrevocably embedded in techno culture.
Curtin’s ‘I-90 to Infinity’ remix channels that very same mood. Both Curtin and Lustwerk were are native to Ohio; the title of Curtin’s remix comes from the long cross-country freeway that runs through the US State.
Curtin’s long-standing Metamorphic label has remained active since 1991, with the artist still putting out records on the imprint. Spanning represses of sought-after classics, his own productions, and new projects by up-and-comers, Curtin’s remix of ‘Can’t Believe’ signals even more activity from the label. The remix 12″ is out now.
