Premiere: Hear a New Track by The Junto Club
'Shiviana' arrives with remixes from Bucharest duo Khidja and Smagghe & Cross.
Shiviana follows two standout releases on Optimo Music and will inaugurate brand new label Snap, Crackle & Pop, which is born out of the London club night of the same name. For those unfamiliar, Junto Club specializes in dancefloor-ready post-punk of the off-kilter variety—it’s an enticing style that references artists from the old guard such as Bauhaus, as well as modern-day proponents like Andrew Weatherall.
The two Junto Club originals are joined by reworks from Khidja and Smagghe & Cross—the side project of Ivan Smagghe and Rupert Cross—both of whom turn in devastatingly original interpretations.
Shiviana drops on vinyl December 12 and can be pre-ordered at Juno, with the digital release to follow early 2017. Ahead of those releases, you can stream EP cut “Ikiryo” in full via the player above.
