You know those conversations you have. Where one person likes a track and another doesn’t. One thinks it’s genius and the other says, “what planet are you on?” Even amongst best buddies you never know exactly which way it’s going to go. Even amongst band members!


For Dance Music Will Tear Us Apart, Minuit front person Ruth Carr gifted band mates Ryan Beehre and Paul Dodge (aka DJ/producers Funknslocuts and Gimme A C!) a handful of lyrics to do with whatever they liked.

With these lyrics and a scoop into the bountiful Minuit archives, they have delivered three tunes each; an eclectic mix of beats in the styles they like for the dance floor. Enjoy!


Or not. Because that’s what it’s about - choice. This EP is dedicated to and inspired by those who have the choice taken away from them.

In 2009, Taliban soldiers killed a Pakistani woman well known in the community for her dancing. Did that stop the locals? Of course it did. The next day handwritten notes were scrawled across doors saying, “We have stopped dancing, please do not knock on our door.”

So for the first single, Minuit has given YOU a choice. There are two tunes. You may prefer Stop Dancing or you may prefer Out of Luck. You may prefer both. It’s up to you.
 

Dance Music Will Tear Us Apart is out Monday 8 November on Tardus Music
