On February 18th, 2013, HUMANS released the Nine Tenths Remix EP, featuring interpretations of "Possession" from HUMANS' Traps by Beta Frontiers, Hissy Fit and Killing Time. This EP is available for purchase on wordandsound, Beatport, Juno, emusic, and Amazon. You can also stream it through Rdio.
"Vancouver’s Robbie Slade and Peter Ricq’s visceral brand of indietronica serves their namesake well; as HUMANS, they released “Possession” off Traps early last year. The track drums in modestly, conveying a sense of solitude. The focus then shifts to the person, who I imagine, is pounding trash cans on a city street — apparently helpless, yet exuding a surprisingly beautiful voice and rhythm. He captures an audience before his imagination takes the expression onto another dimension.
Toronto’s Beta Frontiers respect the original musical aesthetic, while still transporting the listener. Their remix ironically places the mental vertigo of the lyrical content against optimistic percussion and bubbling, joyous elements. Although it easily becomes an underground club banger with a tinge of 80s synth, it maintains the sense that someone is telling you their strange, compelling story." - Anu Rana, Indie Shuffle
