Peaches to Drop All-Female ‘Rub’ Remixes LP, Shares Maya Jane Coles’ “Close Up” Remix [LISTEN]
Nocturnal Sunshine, Maya Jane Coles' alias for her bassier, dubstep-esque project, just dropped a dark, deep remix of "Close Up," Peaches' collaboration with Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon off the Canadian electro pop star's 2015 LP, Rub. The new track is part of a forthcoming double-vinyl remix compilation -- Rub Remixes -- featuring an all-female roster of producers and DJs including JD Samson of Le Tigre and MEN, Paula Temple, Maya Postepski (AKA Austra/ Princess Century), Evvol and Planningtorock among others.
The double-LP is out May 27 via I U She/Kartel, Resident Advisor reports. Listen to Nocturnal Sunshine's remix of "Close Up" below.
Rub was mostly produced in-house by Peaches, AKA Merril Nisker, alongside Vince Cooler. Apparently, the "F*ck The Pain Away" singer didn't intentionally enlist only female electronic producers and DJs, but she's not mad about the results.
"Without even realizing it, I had only asked women to produce remixes," Nisker said in a press statement. She added: "I'm glad that they all said yes and I love every mix," Thump reports.
The artists featured on the forthcoming remix collection are mostly techno-leaning, but it's not Nisker's first -- or last -- time collaborating with different kinds of electronic artists. Recently, Peaches was featured on Jean-Michel Jarre's new track "What You Want." Give that a listen below.
In addition to playing some international tour dates and dropping mostly NSFW videos that are as visually evocative as her sexually-explicit (and sex-positive) lyrics, Nisker has been busy with a number of TV appearances. She was featured in a recent episode of Broad City alongside Sleater-Kinney and Kim Gordon.
Also recently, she discussed Kim Kardashian's nude selfie as a guest panelist on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. She's scheduled to appear in an upcoming episode of the sci-fi series Orphan Black.
