'This Dog Can Swim' Out Now

Lukid - 'This Dog Can Swim' Out Now

Lukid's brand new single This Dog Can Swim is out today on Werkdiscs / Ninja Tune.

The A side belongs to Lukid, on which he presents us with two uniquely haunting snapshots of canine life. The title track is a fierce one; Lukid pairs the splashiest snare ever recorded with a disconcertingly icy synth to create three and a half minutes of rabid music sure to get your favourite tail-wagger all worked up into a fury. Where the opening track is bloodthirsty and feral, the 2nd is a more domesticated affair, with Lukid using the same dog-sounds to create a new dog-mood. Paying tribute to man’s best friends' more affectionate side, "This Dog Can Run" twists the icy synths into twinkly melody, then buries it under a layer of fog and detritus to create a warmer (if still unnerving) portrait of a hound.

The B side belongs to the remixers. First up is 1991, an elusive young Swede who came to our attention after using his allotted bi-monthly hour of internet time to upload some incredibly timeless gems to his soundcloud page. The 2nd remix comes from Mass Prod, a Genoan lad whose hobbies include techno and satan. Both producers provide abstract and spiralling meditations on Lukid’s mongrel, creating the perfect footnote to this whole barbarous affair.

We don’t know the name or whereabouts of the dog that Lukid is chronicling on this vinyl record, but we surely do not envy its owner. This dog can bite.

This Dog Can Swim is out now and available to buy on 12" vinyl and DL at the Ninjashop, iTunes and Amazon.
