Avalon Emerson remixes “The walker” by Christine and the Queens, released today as an Amazon Original.
“I’ve been a fan of Christine’s since her first record,” writes Avalon Emerson. Regarding her aesthetic approach to the remix Emerson explains, “I wanted to draw from some of my favorite parts of the 80’s and early 90’s: an arped EBM/Industrial leaning bassline, swimming ethereal vocals nodding toward shoegaze, and a reverb-gated snare-heavy break beat breakdown.”
Avalon Emerson is from the desert. While she currently lives in Berlin, the music she produces comes from the dreamlike expanse and abstract textures of the Sonoran landscapes of Arizona. In her DJ sets and productions, she offers a timeless narrative that reflects a passion for the sound design of new wave, the futurism of techno, the soul of American house and the exuberance of rave.
Christine and the Queens, AKA Héloïse Letissier, released her new album Chris in September 2018. Following the global success of her 2016 debut album Chaleur Humaine, the new album saw Letissier stepping into the physical and conceptual personae of "Chris" to create a direct record that makes no apology for its themes of sex, desire, machismo and otherness.
Pitchfork called Chris, “an electric blend of unforgettable imagery, emotional depth, and lurid pop-funk” while Rolling Stone said, “Héloïse Letissier creates a polyglot pop that transcends gender, international borders and musical categories.” The Independent likewise acclaimed the album as “a perfect pop record.” Christine and the Queens recently performed “Comme si” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The group is currently on tour worldwide and recently completed a sold-out run of U.S. shows.
Initially only available on Amazon Music, the track premieres on the global playlist 'Signals', providing fans with a diverse selection of new electronic tracks & artists from around the world.
