Henri - Dark Star (EP)

It was only last month that London-born, Los Angeles-based singer, producer and DJ Henrietta Tiefenthaler, aka Henri reached number two on the Hype Machine charts with her emotive remix of "Two Bodies by Australian duo, Flight Facilities.

Today, Henri's returns with her new EP, Dark Star, her second release on Monstertooth Records. The lead track, "Dark Star", features a swelling, cinematic string arrangement by composer/producer Dan Heath (Lana Del Rey). Described by Arthur Baker as "Moody, melodic and sexy... could definitely hear it in a Solomun set." The AA-side, "Only Love Will Take Me There", co-written and co-produced by Marius de Vries, is a delphic and industrial track framed around an ethereal choir sample and Henri's spoken word lyrics, reminiscent of an indulgent techno night in the '90s.

The release also includes a fresh remix of "Only Love Will Take Me There" by L.A.-based production team Heidi Höven, consisting of the super talented choon spiller and sophisticated style icon Heidi Lawden and industry cracker jack Hein Höven (Sade, Joe Strummer, Bush, Black Grape). No doubt Henri is definitely one to watch in 2016.

Stream the EP in full below.

"Dark Star / Only Love Will Take Me There" is available exclusively on Beatport from now until December 7th.
