[Engl. below] - Rat Race Ep accoglie i remix di "Rat Race" e "The Gutters", brani parte dell’album Escapes (2021). Le tracce sono state rilette dagli sguardi sonori di:

• Silent Panda | Deadly Panda (chitarra e voce dei Julie’s Haircut)
• Howie B (producer e dj già al fianco di Bjork e Portishead)
• Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator, Faust)

Già dietro le fila di album come “Pretty Hate Machine” dei Nine Inch Nails, Tony Dawsey ha realizzato il remaster della versione originale del brano Rat Race in apertura e i master dell’intero Ep, elaborati al Phantom Mastering Studio di New York City.

Rat Race Ep collects remixes of "Rat Race" and "The Gutters" – two tracks published by Mattatoio5 in their Escapes album (2021), now reinterpreted by the sound gazes of:

• Silent Panda | Deadly Panda (guitar and voice of Julie's Haircut)
• Howie B (producer and DJ already alongside Bjork and Portishead)
• Amaury Cambuzat (Ulan Bator, Faust)

Already behind the ranks of albums such as Nine Inch Nails' "Pretty Hate Machine", Tony Dawsey remastered the original version of the opening track –Rat Race – and mastered the entire EP, processed at the Phantom Mastering Studio in New York City.
