Nav Katze submit themselves to another round of abstract remixes on NEVER MIND THE DISTORTION II. And while the remixers here might not have the instanteous clout as the batch on the first round, the results are nonetheless great. Both the Gentle People and Sun Electric keep the vocals mostly intact, the former putting a lava lamp-ready lounge spin on "Ready to Go," while the latter spin an ambient-electric web around "Borderless #2." Disjecta gets three mixes under his belt (possibly four, if you count the bright and shiny Seefeel mix of "Happier..."), most of which crunch industrial rhythms with vocal fragments (the ones on "Tightrope" sound vaguely feline). And instead of the drill 'n' bass for which he's now known, µ-ziq travels a more sedate path. An Autechre mix of "Happy?" closes out the album on with rhythm and (occasionally harsh) filtered sounds. Never mind the distortion indeed!
