The Qemists - Hurt Less - out on Ninja Tune



The Qemists Hurt Less
The Qemists - Hurt Less
(12"/Download) Ninja Tune ZEN12266/ZENDNLS266, 2010-07-19

Regular collaborator and tour-mate Jenna G returns to the Qemists fold for Hurt Less, the second single to be taken from their sophomore full-length Spirit In The System, and one of the album's emotional peaks. Jenna's powerful, vulnerable vocal makes a perfect fit for The Qemists' original track, high on dynamics and drama, and with a nagging melancholic melody. The single also comes with three new remixes: 2-Step/Garage producers Hot City (recently signed to Moshi Moshi) deliver an elegantly itchy mix, legendary Tech-House duo My Digital Enemy transform the track into a shuddering Dance-Floor epic, while Brighton-based Dubstep producer Riskotheque slows the tempo and increases the tempo, with a recut that'll shake the picture-frames from your walls and wake the dead.

Press Release :
Regular collaborator and tour-mate Jenna G returns to the Qemists fold for 'Hurt Less', the second single to be taken from their sophomore full-length Spirit In The System, and one of the album's emotional peaks. "People can be really emotionally affected by Dance music", says Liam Black, one third of The Qemists. "They can have their best, deepest experiences on a dance-floor. We wanted to capture that range of emotions."

"We just said to the vocalists on the record, 'think about the emotion, sing about what matters to you'", adds Dan fellow Qemist Dan Arnold. "We wanted feelings on this record. We got one of the most emotional tracks from Jenna G on 'Hurt Less'. She knew us so well from touring with us that she was totally unafraid to give it everything, and sing what she really felt." Jenna's powerful, vulnerable vocal makes a perfect fit for The Qemists' original track, high on dynamics and drama, and with a nagging melancholic melody.

The single also comes with three new remixes: 2-Step/Garage producers Hot City (recently signed to Moshi Moshi) deliver an elegantly itchy mix, legendary Tech-House duo My Digital Enemy transform the track into a shuddering Dance-Floor epic, while Brighton-based Dubstep producer Riskotheque slows the tempo and increases the tempo, with a recut that'll shake the picture-frames from your walls and wake the dead.
