Korallreven Releases Remix Package for Single ‘Sa Sa Samoa’

In anticipation of their first US tour, which launches this Sunday in New York, Acéphale announces a remix package for Korallreven’s latest single – the Julianna Barwick featuring, “Sa Sa Samoa.”

Released for free over the coming weeks, the set includes an extended version of the track by Korallreven themselves, along with reinterpretations from forward-thinking newcomers Arca, UNKNOWN, & Recycle Culture. To kick things off, here’s a remix from Minneapolis’ Elite Gymnastics that pairs Barwick’s choral loops with hardcore breakbeats, accelerating them into hyperdrive. And then there’s that KLF/JAMs referencing Whitney sample!

Swedish duo Korallreven aka Marcus Joons and Daniel Tjäder (of The Radio Dept) is preparing for its first US shows ever down to this year’s SXSW. This tour follow Korallreven’s live debut in Europe this past December that featured expansive light displays and sets with Air France. Several performances will include a  special guest appearance by Victoria Bergsman (Taken By Trees, The Concretes). Bergsman was featured on the duo’s single “As Young As Yesterday, which went to #1 on the Hype Machine and was named one of Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Tracks.”Sa Sa Samoa’ is the third single from the duo’s debut album, An Album By Korallreven, available now on Acéphale.
