Kasper Bjørke and Colder's "Black Magic" EP feels both brand new and like a return to something powerful rooted in what came before; post punk attitude, no wave skronk, disco drums and a classic techno pulse. It's heady, cerebral, deeply trippy music for adventurous dance floors.

The Black Magic Remixes build on everything remarkable about the originals, pushing elements further towards- and away from- the conventions of the club which is the in-between where Throne of Blood loves to play.

Kicking things off, London-based The Golden Filter (Optimo Records) shoot for the center of the dance floor, building the drama with staccato synths and a broken rhythm awash in dramatically swelling synths and vertiginous delay.

Building on the heady vibes of his recent remix of "In The Morning" by Smagghe &a Cross for Huntley & Palmers, Parisian mastermind Pilooski puts his hands on “Black Magic," building off-kilter harmonics from a mille feuille of analog synths while coaxing a twisted pop sensibility from the original before waves of delays begin dissolving elements to a slow motion drum machine rhythm lurching like a heart palpitation.

Paranoid London's Mutado Pintado rounds out the remixes with an uptempo take on "Black Magic" oozing with attitude. He adds his own vocals atop chopped up sax samples and a heavy four to the floor kick. At the midpoint, oddball vocal samples and a propulsive arpeggiated synth theme carry the song to a sweat-drenched finish.

To complete the package, Bjørke and Colder offer up an instrumental version of "Black Magic" for those moments when vocals would only break the spell.
