Ke Thu Drops New Visual + Remixes to Celebrate Debut Set at Movement Festival 2022
Detroit-based live electronic duo ke thu are gearing up for their debut performance at Movement Electronic Music Festival on Sunday, May 29th with a one-two punch of releases: a live video for their new track “Every Soul Knows The Infinite,” as well as a split with Beatloaf of JoJo remixes released on local Detroit label, PITS.
The visual for “Every Soul Knows The Infinite” (below) was shot at Eightfold in Detroit, and features bandmates Steve Stavropoulos and Tim Barrett playing the track live, recorded directly to a stereo track using an impressive combination of gear.
With visual design by Dylan Magliocco and Dean Ripper, the video (shot and edited by Jon Humphrey) is a mesmerizing testament to the group’s commitment to live performance, featuring tasteful and disorienting optics that add to the track’s build and progression.
The PITS release, on the other hand, showcases ke thu’s dexterity and tolerance for risk. Taking such an iconic song and doing something original with it is no easy feat, but in their collaboration with Beatloaf they are able to balance nostalgic appeal with artistic ambition.
The result is two dance-floor-ready slappers that can be dropped, with proper discretion, on almost any audience. We look forward to seeing how these secret weapons might be utilized in sets over the weekend; the tracks can be downloaded for free on the PITS soundcloud here.
Don’t miss ke thu performing live at Movement on Sunday, May 29th from 6pm-7pm on the Detroit Stage
