In a press statement, Athlete Whippet said 30/70’s original recordings were “brilliant”.
“Rhythm Section have introduced quite a few great artists from AUS here in the UK by now and it’s been extra nice doing a cross-wordly collaboration for the first time,” they said.
Close Counters spoke about how they and 30/70’s worlds had been “intertwined by the soul of Melbourne” through jams and overlapping side projects, ZFEX and Horatio Luna/Luna Exchange. They remixed ‘Impermanence’ for the new EP.
“[Our remix] journeys from the original grittier Bruk feel to a steady-chugging dance floor number. An ode to the sweaty festivals and D-floors of Summer ‘19,” Close Counters said.
30/70 released their first ever live album in July, ‘Live At La Defénse’, recorded in Paris on their ‘Fluid Motion’ album tour last year. In April, they recorded a set for Boiler Room.
