Canadian electronic producer and performer Marie Davidson shares previously unreleased track ‘Chasing The Light’ on vinyl for the first time along with the stellar ‘Work It’ (Soulwax Remix) and ‘Lara’ (Daniel Avery Remix) - both originally from her acclaimed album Working Class Woman (Ninja Tune).
Legendary Belgian duo Soulwax - otherwise known as 2manydjs - propel Marie’s ‘Work It’ - a spoken text, tongue-in-cheek mantra for the workaholic generation - over their own inimitable reworking of the original track, while Daniel Avery (Phantasy Sound / Mute) delivers a dark, booming take on the “acidic adrenaline” (The Guardian) of ‘Lara’. Soulwax’s remix has become a summer hit, lighting up DJ sets and dance floors worldwide since its recent release in April 2019.
Industrial heaviness is balanced by Marie’s spoken text, dark, textured soundscapes are counterweighted by statements that carry a darkly humorous edge, making observations on both aspects of club culture as well as more oblique critiques of the modern world.
Marie is a member of Essaie Pas with husband Pierre Guerineau (DFA Records) as well as with DKMD with David Kristian (Giallo Disco Records). Marie has also collaborated on previous projects with various artists including Xarah Dion as Les Momies De Palerme, Sleazy with Ginger Breaker and Matana Roberts.
