Patron of deep house grooves and esoteric field recordings, French-German Pantha du Prince has decided to switch his label home from the Hamburg-based, boutique Dial to the UK’s eclectic Rough Trade. Prince’s first order of business at his new home is to drop a brand new 12″ entitled The Splendour in early December, which will be promptly followed by his third full-length record, Black Noise, on February 9. Previously a remixer for the likes of Animal Collective, Depeche Mode, and Bloc Party, Pantha du Prince’s new music is said to “…balance precariously on the slippery threshold between art and nature, between techno and folklore, which lends it a certain spectral and intangible aspect.” We look forward to hearing such forays into a musically transcendental experience.
