Korallreven Hit The Road Stateside Release New Single

In anticipation of their first US tour, which launches this Sunday in New York, Acéphale announces a remix package for Korallreven's latest single - the Julianna Barwick featuring, "Sa Sa Samoa."  A song that may or may not be about their favorite Girl Scout Cookies: Samoa's.

Released for free over the coming weeks, the set includes an extended version of the track by Korallreven themselves, along with reinterpretations from forward-thinking newcomers Arca, UNKNOWN, and Recycle Culture. To kick things off, here's a remix from Minneapolis' Elite Gymnastics that pairs Barwick's choral loops with hardcore breakbeats, accelerating them into hyperdrive. And then there's that KLF/JAMs referencing Whitney sample!
