Factory Floor

Factory Floor

After a remarkable 2013, Factory Floor reveal the details of their latest release for DFA and one of the Factory Floor album highlights with the single ‘How You Say’  – the static filled and propulsive sound of New York’s dance underground rebooted and re-imagined for a near future inner city digital versus analogue battle and set for release on 19 May 2014. The single features the original mix, as well as remixes from Phantasy’s very own Daniel Avery (“Avery applies his smoggy-gorgeous touch to Factory Floor” Pitchfork), Invisible Conga People, Gunnar Haslam, Bookworms, and Helena Hauff.

Added to this, the band head back out on tour in the UK in May following US appearances including Coachella. They are hands down one of the best live entities around. Exhilarating in a word. Or as 4/5 live review in The Guardian duly noted recently “Factory Floor create pliable, zoned-out songs that encourage the mind to wander, even as incontestable beats commandeer your feet.” See full list of lives dates below. All this news rounds off a momentous twelve months for Factory Floor. Following years of anticipation, 2013 saw the band release Factory Floor, their long-awaited debut on DFA Records. The album was recorded and mixed by the band in their North London warehouse space (sadly now demolished).

Factory Floor in its current, fully formed incarnation got together in late 2009 when guitarist/vocalist Nik Colk Void joined the dark-hearted, 21st Century rhythm section of drummer Gabe Gurnsey and synth player Dominic Butler. Within months their astonishing gigs had earned them a devoted audience in the UK. In the two years after the trio formed they released a number of EPs and 12”s on labels such as Blast First Petite and Optimo while all the time their live sound was shifting away from an all-out noise assault into a much more spacious and confident exploration of techno, minimal, acid and post-industrial rhythms and textures.
