Squelchy math-rock kings Battles have always had plenty of the European microhouse scene embedded in their DNA; “Atlas,” after all, was their take on Michael Mayer’s schaffel sound. The group is getting ready to launch a new series of 12″ singles called Dross Glop, which will collect remixes of tracks from their 2011 album Gloss Drop. And appropriately enough, the first installment includes contributions from two Kompakt Records all-stars, the Field and Gui Boratto. Below, stream the Field’s take on “Sweetie & Shag” and Boratto’s reworking of “Wall Street.”
