Lumière Noire
A haunting new-wave/pop number, this Berlin-based duo is set to have a minor hit for Chloé’s Lumière Noire. Local Suicide’s wonderfully sparse, brittle contribution comes with a key remix selection: Ivan Smagghe and Rupert Cross (as Smagghe & Cross) keep the similar tempo, but curdle the groove with layers of detuned percussion and oddly timed delay feedback, while prolific production talent Lauer offers a straighter, slow electro-disco version, as Niv Ast works a cold, EBM inspired mix.
