L’ECSTASY DUE DECEMBER 1ST
“SILENCE OF LOVE” FEAT. JESSE BOYKINS III OUT NOW
Hudson Mohawke and Tiga, collectively known as Love Minus Zero, return to share the latest offering from their collaborative album, L’Ecstasy due December 1st.
Discover the electrifying single that’s already reverberating throughout the international dance music scene, traveling from the very mantle of the Earth to the smiles of surface-dwelling dancers the world over. On “Silence of Love,” the acid-house banger piece of the year, Tiga & Hudson Mohawke step behind the curtain and cede center stage to a longing vocal from the incredible Jesse Boykins III.The track weaves retro-futuristic acid house wizardry with Boykins’ soulful voice, with the pulsating beats, dreamy synths, and Boykins’ evocative lyrics will lead you into a world wheretime stands still, beats pulsate, and the fabric of augmented reality itself dissolves. This track is destined to be the anthem of Q4 2023, the soundtrack to crazy nights sweat away on global dance floors across the country. It is also part of the 0.03% of modern house music that doesn’t sound like it waswritten, produced and arranged by an elliptical machine.
The project’s artwork was created by famed photographer Wolfgang Tillmans, who graciously reached out after hearing the track during the LMZ Sonar performance in Barcelona. Tillmans said the track struck “a Herznote, or chord close to the heart.” This evocative description was exactly the kind of reaction the duo had hoped to inspire: “Normally you’ll just accept ‘genre-defying’ or ’nuts-to-the-wall’ as a compliment and move on,” says Tiga. “But we saw our intention reflected in his words. Getting to collaborate with a world-class artist like Wolfgang validates the very idea of having emotions at all.”
“In my lifetime, It’s never been easier to not love — there are a million reasons to close yourself off every day,” says Tiga. “But sometimes allowing yourself to love means letting everything in, including all the pain and saxophone solos in the world. Ultimately, though, we wanted to make a song that makes you feel something just by reading about it, and I think we’ve done that. One Love — for real this time, not like all the other times I said it.”
