Hear Carmen Villain remixed by Peaking Lights and Bjørn Torske




Carmen Villian (aka the newly Norwegian-based Carmen Hillestad) released her tempestuous debut album, Sleeper, earlier this year via Smalltown Supersound. Throughout, Carmen showed her creative range and distinctive production style as she plastered dreamlike vocals over loose, abrasive instrumental tracks on which she played guitar, bass, drum machines, keyboards and percussion. Following an initial 12” featuring album single “Lifeissin” and Prins Thomas’ excellent remix, Smalltown Supersound is now releasing a follow-up 12” featuring psychedelic and epic remixes of other standout album tracks by labelmate Bjørn Torske, Peaking Lights and the previously shared remix by Optimo’s JD Twitch. Listen to all below.
