Track Of The Day: Negative Lovers - 'Faster Lover' (Jagz Kooner Remix)

Kraut-trance. Is that a sound that you're familiar with? No? Well, side A of the new Negative Lovers record is something that you will need to hear. A sharp, energetic fusion of industrial psychedelia and krautrock-infused punk, 'Faster Lover' is a fresh blast of excitement that digs further into the brain with each insistent bar. The incredible Jagz Kooner remix of the track emphasises the motorik rhythms and rearranges it into a remarkable German-flavoured odyssey, while its somewhat trance-like side is explored further with the dub mix of the song that Kooner also provides.

Negative Lovers are a four piece noise rock band who hail from the Indonesian city of Jakarta. The six track 'Faster Lover' EP is their second release under their current name, after formerly being known as Denial. They appear to have been influenced by a number of legendary bands (Primal Scream, Spacemen 3, Can) but add plenty of their own potent ingredients to the mixture, focusing and expanding on various ideas to brilliant effect.
