icarus / various - Sylt Remixes
UK electronica producers Icarus hand over the tracks from their 2007 Rump Recordings LP Sylt to a host of international remixing talent, from Raster Noton's Frank Bretschneider and Coh through to Morr Music artists Isan, and a rare return to beat-based production from Type Records' main man Xela. One of the early highlights on the selection comes from Danish artist Thomas Knak, who returns as Opiate for a great abstract overhaul of 'Keet', whose beats are remodelled into head-spinning flurries of granular sound - all very far away from Knak's classic Hobby Industries releases. Up next is a Frank Bretschneider take on the same track, opting for a more streamlined, minimal (as you could probably imagine) aesthetic, pinned together by stripped down loops and surprisingly unguarded melodies. Heading into a bit of a dubstep groove Karsten Pflum cuts into 'First Inf(E)raence' with some massive snares in tow, offering a wildly different slant on the original to Xela's unexpected hip-hop angle. Our old pal John Twells avoids the sort of pitch-black drone studies we've become accustomed to in favour of BOC-like beats, brightened synth basslines and layered, harmonising vocals. It's actually incredibly poppy, and underlines both the diversity and overall quality of this fine compilation.
