Experimental electronic producers Camilla Sparksss and Dälek’s Mike Mare have teamed up for a new double A-side single, ‘Sparksss & Mare’, featuring new tracks ‘Goo’ and ‘Drifting’.

Their respective distinct styles complement each other perfectly on the two dark tracks, which are both topped off with Sparksss’ vocals. It’s so successful, in fact, that we’re left hoping that this is the start of a longer term collaboration, rather than simply a one-off.

Sparksss is busy elsewhere too though. She begins a solo UK tour later this month, and is gearing up to release her third album, ‘Lullabies’, next year.

Describing her live shows, she says: “As an electronic musician coming from a punk background my biggest challenge was to create a physical live experience, so by pressing my samples on dubplates I can play them as ‘real’ instruments, the turntables become my guitars”.

The tour kicks off at The Waiting Room in London on 25 Nov, before taking in Bristol, Preston, Glasgow and Coventry.
