Lea Porcelain reveal a thumping remix of album track, “Warsaw Street” by acclaimed UK DJ/producer and Hotflush Recordings owner, Scuba (Paul Rose). They say, “From when the 1st bass kicks in until the last synth fades out – we are proud to have our song ‘WARSAW STREET’ remixed by the one and only SCUBA! From England to Berlin – he is famous for playing the best dance floors with the most delicate dj-sets and is also a good friend of our place of origin – Frankfurt nightclub, The Robert Johnson.”
The post-punk duo recently released debut full-length, HYMNS TO THE NIGHT, which was written and recorded over a two year period in Berlin’s FUNKHAUS, a broadcasting house created under Soviet supervision that now houses the world’s biggest recording studio. The spectrum of the album is extremely wide. HYMNS TO THE NIGHT bends genres, yet every song works together, playing with very different moods. Lea Porcelain describe their sound “atmospheric, cinematic and melancholic.”

Lea Porcelain aim to make “universal” music; songs people can treasure in day, night, between different states of mind. They want to make music for “the entire world”, and this partly stems from a globe-trotting past. No matter the genre, range of instruments or sound palette, their presence is unmistakable. Every song is tied together by the duo’s ethos, their free approach towards making music. In the standout moments of their debut, everything spills outwards, drums cascading into the distance, a cross between self-destruction and complete euphoria.
HYMNS TO THE NIGHT is available on CD, double gatefold vinyl and digitally here.
