Penya arrived in 2018 with a bang. Their debut LP ‘Super Liminal’ was carefully guided by On the Corner Records. Having started their journey with a pair of conceptual cassette releases and remixes by Jose Marquez and DJ Khalab in 2016.
‘Super Liminal’ was highly praised, the album sold out and the band were soon taking their club ready percussive electronica to festivals around Europe. A prime slot at Worldwide Festival, Leysin then led the band around Europe with highlight’s including a support slot for Sons of Comet at the innovative Brainchild Festival.
However, whilst the band hit the festival circuit, On the Corner friends and family got busy reworking the in demand ‘Super Liminal’. The remixes on this 12” pushes the Penya sound over the border of the club ready aesthetic and expands with a variety of energies from club culture across continents.
The stand out to us, being the the pulsing, driving energy of Sarathy Korwar’s fearsome drum rework. Keeping true to the roots of the original, although taking it to another level with a feeling of ripping, tripping and kicking through the foundation of ‘Why So Angry’. This is a definite taste of what’s to come with Sarathy a delicious addition to Penya’s live work when they push later into the night.
Other remixes come from Photay, Dengue Dengue Dengue, Daisho and Al Zanders.
