A: Death Drive
B: Death Drive (Fiedel Remix)
Inspired by and invoking the heady dance floors of their Anal House Meltdown parties, the pounding excitement of long nights at Berghain, the legendary Berlin club, and intense but fleeting romantic trysts facilitated by clubs and parties. Resident Berghain DJ and producer Fiedel has created a remix that will also feature on the release.
“We wanted to create a track that both embodies the spirit of our clubnight, Anal House Meltdown, and that we would love to play at it. We wanted it to have an epic and odyssey like feeling. As such we knew we wanted it to be over ten minutes long and to have several different phases, but to be unified by a constantly charged sense of sexual and romantic longing.” – AHMD
