The second release on 4GN3S, pronounced “Agnes,” is an angular and shadowy EP by The Golden Filter, titled Dislocation. We’re told to expect five pieces paying equal homage to minimal wave, post-punk, no wave, and electro. 

The Golden Filter, originally from NYC, is a London-based duo consisting of Penelope Trappes and Stephen Hindman. They released Italo-inspired track “Solid Gold” in 2008, and have since steadily released minimal wave- and post ­punk-influenced singles, EPs, and albums on labels like Optimo Music, Dischi Auotunno, Vinyl Factory, Brille, and Kitsune.  They started new label 4GN3S in 2018 with the intention of releasing more free flowing, genre­-bending spectrums of analog electronic music. The first release, Talk Talk Talk, is out now with a remix by Cooper Saver.

The Golden FIlter’s Dislocation EP comes out January 18, with a special XLR8R exclusive beatless remix of “Talk Talk Talk” available now via the WeTransfer button below, or here for EU readers due to temporary GDPR restrictions.
