EP Premiere: Warriors of the Dystotheque – Return To Coney

WotD - Return To Coney

A self-proclaimed “dystopian journey deep into the heart of modern trip hop and gloomtronica” Return to Coney is the second EP from multi-national outfit Warriors of the Dystotheque. Founded by Derry’s Jonny Mac, the quartet’s craft is a darkly blend of slick, lo-fi soundscapes in the vein of Massive Attack and UNKLE, rounded off by a deft cinematic scope and solid command of layered, trip-hop leaning instrumentalism.

Released via Tigre Fair today, Return to Coney is inspired by cult 70s film The Warriors and particularly one of the final moments of the film, where The Warriors return to their home turf – Coney Island. Featuring remixes by Miaoux Miaoux, Attrition and Candi Bianca, the five-track release is an all-too brief, simmering traipse traversing wonderfully downbeat trip-hop, ambient techno and modern acid.
