architeq - Birds Of Prey Versions EP (Kelpe / Debruit / Fulgeance Mixes)
If we cast our minds back to last year and the release of Architeq's original 'Birds Of Prey' release, you may remember we were quite smitten with his mentallist fusion of discoid bass with post-junglist electronica and equally baffled by its release on Tirk records. So we're even more surprised and delighted to receive this remix EP including revisions from Kelpe, Fulgeance, Debruit and James Pants taking Architeq's 'Birds Of Prey' cut and bashing it into ever fresher angles. Kelpe's mix is one of our favourites here, taking the sub 100bpm cosmic disco route with a muscular flow riding arpeggiated basslines and unspooling synthlines, and we're equally impressed with Fulgeance's super crafty beatworked version packed with cutting-edge time-stretching effects and post-Dilla snare slaps or Debruit's mix managing to maintain the rhythmic tension of the original with slight double timed rhythms underpinned by a heavy head-nod beat. Flip the wax and you'll find a proper sleazy version of 'Sleeping Bear Lament' from James Pants featuring some nifty synthwork from the Stones Throw fella, but the 12"s highlight comes from Architeq himself with a superb dub mix of 'Birds...' reworking the drums and percussion before adding truly authentic tape delay effects for a comforting level of warmth and organic texture. With the stellar roll call of remixers and dancefloor begging revisions this is a must have item for any of the nu-skool instro hiphop to disco heads or even dub house fiends. Large.
