Subway "Simplex (Gatto Fritto Remix)"
Killer Italo/New York disco meets Detroit techno meets Krautrock bomb in a DFA stylee! Subway's new 12" single is a startling cosmic marriage of influences — German electronic rock music from the 1970s (Cluster, Kraftwerk, Neu, Harmonium, Ash Ra Tempel), '80s Detroit science fiction techno (Carl Craig, Juan Atkins, Jeff Mills) and a hint of Italian and European disco (Baldelli meets Cerrone, Space, Moroder and Jean Michel Jarre). This new single features a killer mix (featuring live guitars, handclaps and more) by current DFA/Dissonant man-of-the-moment artist Gatto Fritto which adds a sublime Arthur Russell/New York experimentation, ambiance and feel to the title track 'Simplex.' Subway are Michael Kirkman and Alan James and have been releasing music since 2000 on a variety of labels including Sunday Best and their own Threetone Records. These exclusive new tracks and remix are a taster for their forthcoming album to be released on Soul Jazz Records in autumn 2008.
