BPitch label founder Ellen Allien turns her attention to the romantic darkwave duo Lebanon Hanover, aka Larissa Iceglass and William Maybelline, for three remixes.
These tracks began life as personal edits for her own DJ sets in 2019, appearing in her last Boiler Room and many shows since. They include two remixes of “Living On The Edge” and one remix of “Invite Me To Your Country”.
“I’m a fan of Lebanon Hannover – they’re my weekly soundtrack at home, dancing around the carpet with my friends. Their lyrics speak to my soul and embody a feeling for me of where I come from. The Berlin of the past, that was empty and changeable, full of possibility from which we were finally able to blossom,” Allien explains.
“Although Larissa sings in a very pretty way, the attitude is one of truth and melancholy, not pretending that the world is sweet and happy, but full of intensity, it’s sexy and truthful.”
The remixes are lovingly and respectfully composed by an artist who counts themselves as a sincere fan of Lebanon Hanover.
‘All three remixes are releasing October 22nd via BPitch with a 146BPM version of “Living On The Edge” and vinyl on February 4th.
