D/R/U/G/S: "Love/Lust (Keep Shelly in Athens Remix)"

The Love/Lust 12" EP from D/R/U/G/S feels like the culmination of a great deal of restraint on Callum Wright's part; parceling out singles for a year while waiting for the right label and the right time. This makes his physical debut with Moshi Moshi's Tender Age imprint on May 9th all the more gratifying. Though the EP's title track doesn't even begin to showcase Wright's range across its three total tracks, he says it was "the first that felt right," so the tonal shift in this new remix from Keep Shelly in Athens feels significant. In their hands, "Love/Lust" becomes a more gregarious, Balearic reimagining of the original's precision IDM, with abbreviated synth and ambient swells replacing D/R/U/G/S' pulsating trance. --Dwight Pavlovic, Get Off The Coast
