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.”

  1. The Field and Gui Boratto, 2 of my top favorite artists of the past decade… I’m impressed. So I’m quite surprised to find Battles’ album was released via Warp, and not via Kompakt.

    Oh, and I’ve just listened to several minutes from each track, and I really do like them.

    And finally, “Boratto” is spelled with one “r”.
