Cosmo Rhythmatic will release a posthumous collaboration from Mika Vainio, working with Franck Vigroux

A new six-track EP from the late Mika Vainio, in collaboration with Franck Vigroux, will be released next month by Cosmo Rhythmatic.

Entitled Ignis, it's the first release of collaborative material between Vainio and Vigroux since the former's death early last year. Above, you can check out the harsh, distorted textures of 'Luxure' from the EP.

Ignis follows on from the release of a collaborative album between the pair in 2015 called Peau Froide, Léger Soleil. That album emerged from various studio sessions and live performances between the pair which resulted in a huge amount of recorded material. The duo decided to spread that material across more than one record - the 2015 album was the first of those releases.

Cosmo Rhythmatic will release Ignis digitally and on 12" vinyl on June 29.
