Shura – “White Light (Gabe Gurnsey Factory Floor Remix)”

Artist To Watch Shura dropped her new single “White Light” at the beginning of the month, and Gabe Gurnsey of the London-based disco-inspired band Factory Floor wasted no time giving it the remix treatment. He goes all-out, and it works remarkably well. Gurnsey isolates Shura’s quiet, breathy exhalation and loops it into a mantra, a… More »

Soft As Snow – “Glass Body (Factory Floor Gabe Gurnsey Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last summer we shared UK-based, Norwegian-bred Soft As Snow’s hallucinatory “Halo Heart” video from their Glass Body EP. Now the duo is releasing an EP comprising remixes of Glass Body tracks. One of those remixes is by Factory Floor drummer Gabe Gurnsey’s take on the title track, and like all things Factory Floor, it fucking… More »

Interpol – “My Desire (Factory Floor Remix)”

New York’s Interpol and London’s Factory Floor are two bands with very different takes on retro-minded postpunk darkness. And yet they’ve come together, with Factory Floor transforming “My Desire,” the single from Interpol’s new El Pintor album, into a heaving and twinkling seven-minute goth-house assault. It sounds absolutely nothing like the original, to the point… More »

Liars – “Pro Anti Anti (Factory Floor (GG:NV) Remix)”

Nearly a decade into the band’s career, Liars’ new album, Mess, finds the band coming back around to making the dance punk that first introduced us to them.

Factory Floor – “How You Say” Video

The punishing London postpunk/acid-house trio Factory Floor released their self-titled full-length debut last year, and now they’re going to follow it up with a series of EPs full of remixes of the album track “How You Say.” The pounding, percolating track now has its own video, too, though it’s really more of an art installatio… More »

Wild Beasts – “Wanderlust (Factory Floor Remix)”

On the new Wild Beasts single “Wanderlust,” frontman Hayden Thorpe memorably sings, “Don’t confuse me with someone who gives a fuck.” You can tell he’s being real with it because his band commissioned a Factory Floor remix. The squiggly London house-goth trio has turned” Wanderlust” into an industrial-tinged seven-minute jitterfest, and you can hear their… More »

Factory Floor – “Turn It Up (Laurel Halo Remix)”

Laurel Halo followed up her stunning album Quarantine this year with Chance Of Rain, which marked a return to her techno roots. This remix of Factory Floor’s “Turn It Up” finds Halo in an airier and looser mode, though the unpredictability of the whole thing keeps it captivating throughout. It some ways it plays like… More »

Factory Floor – “Turn It Up (Carl Craig Remix)”

The British trio Factory Floor take plenty of lessons from postpunk and industrial music, but the basic bones of their sound come from old-school, low-tech, four-on-the-floor Detroit techno. And now one of the old Detroit techno gods has come along to remix their recent single “Turn It Up.” Carl Craig, the most adventurous of hi… More »

Factory Floor – “Turn It Up” Video

The great British trio Factory Floor, who weld house-music sonics to postpunk processes, have just unveiled their video for “Turn It Up,” one of the singles from their self-titled album. And true to form for this band, it’s non-representational arty abstraction: Digitally noisy colors and wave-forms that pulsate along with the track. This time around,… More »

Stream Factory Floor Factory Floor

For a few years now, the London trio Factory Floor have been releasing singles that take classic minimal body-jacking Chicago house and rough it up — with goth moans, with industrial sputters, with an overall sense of constantly ratcheting-up tension that never explodes into relief. We’ve posted a bunch of their songs: “Two Different Ways,”… More »

Vondelpark – “California Analog Dream (Factory Floor Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last week, the young British trio Vondelark released Seabed, a full-length debut packed with jazzy, ruminative R&B grooves, finding some intra-genre sweet spot that not too many others have explored. And now another British genre-smashing trio, merciless London goth-house mystics Factory Floor, have remixed their track “California Analog Dream,” keeping the lost and searching quality… More »

Factory Floor – “Fall Back” Video

The London dance trio Factory Floor, in fusing harsh and primitive house music to postpunk atmospherics, have figured out a way to turn nine-minute songs into gripping, kinetic things. But their videos generally aren’t quite as gripping. Case in point: The video for the excellent new single “Fall Back,” which is eight and a half… More »

Factory Floor – “Fall Back”

The London goth-dance trio Factory Floor continue to absolutely bend minds from one 12″ single to the next, fusing jacked-up Chicago house music to dark and mysterious textures for a whole bunch of minutes at a time. Their latest, “Fall Back,” runs eight and a half absolutely sublime minutes and further supports the hypothesis that… More »

Last month, we heard “Keep It Together,” the itchy, tense, near-trip-hop new single from Trent Reznor’s How to destroy angels_. Reznor and co. deserve props for figuring out exactly the right group to remix the track: The apocalyptic British goth-house trio Factory Floor, who have turned the track into a seven-minute ticking time bomb.

Carter Tutti Void – “V3″

On the new album Transverse, a couple of different generations of bleak British electronic music team up. Carter Tutti Void is the new trio made up of Chris Carter and Cosey Fanni Tutti, both original members of the fucked-up industrial pioneers Throbbing Gristle, and Nik Kolk (otherwise known as Nik Void), one-third of the excellent… More »

Factory Floor – “Second Way” Video

We already posted the minimal video for “Two Different Ways,” the new single from London goth-house comers Factory Floor. Now, the trio has also posted a video for “Second Way,” the alternate version of “Two Different Ways” that appears on the single’s B-side. It’s much the same: A rave-dancer silhouetted against a kaleidoscopic projection screen. More »
