Ben Frost – “Venter (Evian Christ Remix)”

Ben Frost explored electronic textures this year like no one else with his volcanic new album A U R O R A, which is now getting a remix treatment via an upcoming EP titled V A R I A N T. The release pairs his tracks with an intriguing collection of producers. Perhaps the most exciting name on that list is Evian Christ, whose dissonant hip-hop productions caught the ear of Kanye West, making him an essential part of Yeezus. Here, Christ takes on “Venter,” one of the best songs on the album and one of our favorites of the week upon its release. Listen to that one below and read our interview with Frost to learn more about his powerful new album.
