With We Share Our Blood Remixes, Ouri’s Ghostly International debut EP is deftly reconfigured by eight of her favorite producers. A borderless artist in vision and reach — hailing from South America by way of France, now based in Montreal — Ouri invited edits from all over, connecting hues from a wide range of underground electronic spectrums. The result is a rapid-fire series of stylistic and impressionistic flips from a global cortege drawing from Latin dance, Jersey club, hard techno, noise-punk, deconstructed baile funk and beyond.
Berlin-based Discwoman affiliate Bao-Tran Tran aka mobilegirl accelerates “K-Yen Dreamin,” adding brightness and bounce to the original’s haze.
Manchester heavyweight Biome brings a bass-heavy take to the EP title track. Nigeria-born, Vancouver-based artist Debby Friday gives “Hypersensis” a dissonant grit. Montreal’s Marie-Hélène L. Delorme aka Foxtrott reimagines “Escape” with pop sheen, while Brazilian producer Superfície reengineers the track as a technologized weapon. “Down” is seen from three strikingly different angles. Newark, New Jersey’s DJ J Heat primes it for club use. German duo FJAAK add a woozy undertone and hammering kicks. Vancouver duo Minimal Violence pitch Ouri’s vocal harmonies over outbursts of industrial rave-ready programming. As a whole, the eclectic-yet-interconnected set befits an artist whose output shifts shape with ease and ambition.
