BEN FROST announces EP, featuring remixes by Evian Christ, HTRK,

Ben Frost has announced a brand new EP, V A R I A N T, out on vinyl and download on 8 December 2014. This limited edition EP features remixes of tracks taken from the latest album A U R O R A by British producer Evian Christ (following his Waterfall EP and work with Kanye West); Downward label boss and techno producer Regis, Good by Air affiliated experimental artist Dutch E Germ (previous remix credits inc. Fatima Al Qadiri and Mas Ysa); Australian duo HTRK and raster-noton recording artist Kangding Ray.

A U R O R A, performed by Ben Frost with guests Greg Fox, Shahzad Ismaily and Thor Harris, was largely written in Eastern DR Congo where Frost was working with Richard Mosse and Trevor Tweeten on the installation, The Enclave.

Following on from their Congolese collaboration, Frost, Mosse and Tweeten were last month invited by Time magazine to travel to a US aircraft carrier to document flight tests for the new unmanned X-47B drone. The film can be seen here: (LINK)

Frost’s autumn tour continues next week with an appearance at Unsound festival in Poland and the start of N American tour dates before returning to the England in November for the first tour since the release of his acclaimed album, A U R O R A.
