‘Oscillating Between’ remixed by Mark Gage in Vapour Space, serves as an immaculate introduction, with analogue eccentricities building into a procession of pandemonium. This impressive array of electronic intrigue fades as subtly as it builds. ‘Les Ies Flottantes’ remixed by Intens (actually Colin Newman and partner Malka Spigel) is confrontational by comparison, yet communicative with odd noises littering a post-Industrial scheme. Trawl’s remix of ‘Water Walker’ is indescribably wonderful. Sensuously agile, provocatively perfunct and rhythmically robust. A further revision of ‘Oscillating Between’ comes from Craig Wharton and is infused with activity. An avalanche of micro beats hooks into an almost mythically proportioned, deranged wailing. The flow is deep and the components are unique. Expanding tones are expelled like Inuit circular breathing. All four of these revisionary interpretations make valuable and valid tools for the more dexterous audiophile or adventurous disc manipulator. Casting the net as wide as possible, these are the first fruits of a remix project which will include monthly vinyl releases and at least 2 CD compilations.
