Toronto’s recent Polaris Prize nominees Austra will follow up their powerful Domino Records’ release Feel It Break with a generous remix collection, the Sparkle 12″, on July 26th digitally, and August 23rd on vinyl. The digital remix version contains ten tracks, including MNDR’s vibrant reworking of “Spellwork”, which is available for download and streaming here. Other remixes we’re very jazzed to hear is Planningtorock and producer Mark Pistel’s remix of “Lose It” and remixes of the hit “Beat and the Pulse” by Berlin’s Kool Thing and Dutch deep-house producer DJ Steffi.
