HERMIT KINGDOM: REMIXES | Split remix EP from Blockhead, Yppah & Arms and Sleepers, released Oct. 12, 2018 on Future Archive Recordings.
The acclaimed NYC producer BLOCKHEAD is teaming up with Long Beach’s YPPAH and Boston’s ARMS AND SLEEPERS for a full North American tour this fall. To celebrate the occasion, Future Archive Recordings is thrilled to present a joint release between the three artists titled 'Hermit Kingdom: Remixes'. With each artist remixing one track from the other two artists, this 6-song EP will offer an eclectic mix of reenvisioned material, exploring the electronic music spectrum without restraint. Blending hip-hop, shoegaze, jazz, downtempo, and psychedelic influences, among others, 'Hermit Kingdom: Remixes' manages to stand as a cohesive whole rather than as just another collection of remixes. While there are obvious common threads among the three artists, each brings a unique perspective on electronic music that shines in conjunction with the original material being remixed.
Tony Simon, aka Blockhead, has been making and releasing utterly distinctive, funky and emotive music for the last two decades. Formerly signed to Ninja Tune, Blockhead’s most recent album ‘Funeral Balloons’ was released in September 2017 via Backwoodz Studioz.
Yppah (born Joe Corrales Jr.) has forged a career marked by ethereality and dynamism, brought up on equal parts My Bloody Valentine and hip-hop. His 2015 album ‘Tiny Pause’ was released courtesy of Ninja Tune imprint Counter Records.
The electronic music duo Mirza Ramic and Max Lewis have been actively releasing music and touring worldwide as Arms and Sleepers since 2006. Their latest album ‘Find The Right Place’ was released via Pelagic Records in April 2018.
