In anticipation of their upcoming LP HI VIZ, Australian electro-punk duo The Presets today are releasing 14U+14ME Remixes. The EP features remixes of “14U+14ME” by Superpitcher, Marco Faraone, and Sly Faux.
The Presets commented, “Friends. We are absolutely minced to present this selection of major-league remixes of our latest single 14U+14ME, created by techno heavyweights Superpitcher, Marco Faraone and Sly Faux. Tell your cousin that these mixes are not suitable for her gym playlist. Sorry. This is some true, 4am, back room deepness. Marco has even included an additional ‘bonus beats’ mix, 100% guaranteed to transport you back to your favorite ’92 jungle warehouse party. Ruff!! Proceed with Awesome”.
HI VIZ is The Presets’ party album; a hedonistic cocktail of rave nuggets, cyber croons and pub techno, seamlessly mixed across 53 minutes. The vivid LP visuals (by longtime collaborator Jonathan Zawada) and the none-too-subtle title are both clear statements of intent; The Presets are up for it.
It’s been a decade since the duo – Julian Hamilton & Kim Moyes – first set festival fields alight with breakthrough anthems like “My People”, “Talk Like That” and “This Boys In Love”. The pair had been making waves in Sydney’s clubs since forming in 2003 and signing to the influential Modular Records but it was their 2008 Oz chart topper, Apocalypso, that first introduced them to wider audiences. That album was certified triple platinum and won six ARIA Awards in their homeland. By contrast, 2012’s critically acclaimed Pacifica was comparatively introspective but epic gigs around the world – from the Glastonbury Festival and Coachella to Splendour In The Grass – forged the duo’s reputation as Australian electronic music trailblazers. HI VIZ sits firmly in this tradition – a “back to basics” set, deliberately curated as a proxy for The Presets’ live experience. HI VIZ lands June 1st and copies can be pre-ordered from https://thepresets.lnk.to/HIVIZ
