Kuedo - Work, Live & Sleep in Collapsing Space

After dropping 'Severant' arguably the best album of 2011, Kuedo returns with another epic masterpeice. This time a single entitled 'Work, Live & Sleep in Collapsing Space'
I'll let Planet Mu explain all the intricate components and elements..

"'Work, Live & Sleep In Collapsing Space' starts with huge symphonic synths, half-speed kicks, trap style hi-hats rushes and flammed 808 snares, slowly building up with giant whooshes of gaseous noise before breaking out into an intense trancey moroderesque synth that totally fills the track, making it sound absolutely vast and a little bit frightening, running it through effects to give it an aggressive, spacey rush that takes your breath away. It’s the sort of track that connects his past to the newer music he made on 'Severant' with a fierce emotive grace and intense power. This will absolutely destroy dancefloors and headphones alike."

The release also features two remix's, the first by American artist Laurel Halo, who takes the track into a much more harmonious place, removing much of the intensisty from the original. The second remix is by Claude Speeed, drifting the track upwards into the clouds with symphonic beauty before dragging it back down with a racing drum pattern, each remix complimenting the original appropriately.

Check out the original track below: 

The artwork is as pleasing to the eye as the audio is to the ear, with what I believe is more work from Anna Higgie and Sam Chirnside, who are behind the original artwork for Severant.
