Wilde Calm Records is honoured to present the final project with the late Elodie Lauten, a new version of the spiritual club classic “In the Light of the Miracle.” The original version was co-written by fellow downtown luminary Arthur Russell in the early 1980s and appeared on his posthumous 1994 album Another Thought. Numerous club-friendly remixes of “In the Light...” were released as promotional white labels in the 1990s and helped bring this amazing proto-house song to the dance floor.This new version for Wilde Calm picks up where the white label remixes left off, as Lauten had always intended to record her own dancefloor version of “In the Light...” and found a kindred spirit in collaborating with Brooklyn producer Pocketknife. The track features Lauten on vocals and keys, Nirosta Steel (Steven Hall) on additional vocals, Peter Zummo on trombone, and production/arranging by Pocketknife. Reworks were done by two long-time fans of Lauten, L.A.’s Gifted & Blessed (Technoindigenous Studies, Wild Oats, Eglo) and Brooklyn’s Bryce Hackford (PRAH, DFA). Gifted & Blessed references Lauten’s classic post-minimalist compositions with his remix and takes the dance floor of “Miracle 2” out into the cosmos. Hackford focuses on the instrumental track, extending it way out and roughing it up with heavy Bushwick Body Actualized vibes.
