on "slug genital" colored vinyl - apparently slug genitals are a chalky blue. Björk evidently has a knack for selecting collaborators that transmute her already experimental ideas into new and unexpected forms. For her latest remix EP, she’s invited three producers to reimagine Utopia’s first track, “Arisen My Senses” – Lanark Artefax, Jlin, and Kelly Lee Owens – that are all boldly inventive in their own right. The album cut itself provides ample material to work with: an abundance of celestial sonics, rarefied synth-work and of course, that seraphic voice, electrically charged with emotion and meaning. The three takes on “Arisen My Senses” utilise these source materials in vastly different ways, each taking their own unique stance on the original. It’s refreshing to hear a remix EP that doesn’t sound like several slightly different versions of the same song, a sin that the format is often guilty of.
