Prinzhorn Dance School’s spartan sonics have often led to some hand-wringing when trying to play out their records “in the club.” In the first seven years of their existence, there was a sole club-friendly remix in their entire catalog. It is for these reasons that DFA Records is really stoked to announce that they now have a second.
Fellow DFA artist Shit Robot takes the track, “Reign,” from the third album from Prinzhorn Dance School, Home Economics (out June 8th), and turns it into a deep, dark floor-filler. The band’s pleading vocals dive in and out of a throbbing bassline, with new robotic percussion seamlessly blending with the band’s original bangs and clangs.

The 12” single is currently available for purchase and features that previously alluded to Optimo (Espacio) mix of “You Are The Space Invader” - previously only available commercially in digital form, this is the first (slightly) wider vinyl release of this classic remix. An edition of 250 hand-stamped and numbered white label copies, not to be pressed again for another 7 years or so. Probably.
