heatsick - Re-Engineering
**140g wax in silk-screened PVC sleeve, mastered and cut by Rashad Becker, artwork by Steven Warwick and Bill Kouligas in typically gorgeous PAN packaging including a printed inner sleeve** Steven Warwick aka Heatsick cocks a unique and compelling perspective on contemporary dance music with his bold follow-up to 'Intersex', a gorgeous, layered work that those of you into DJ Sprinkles should check out without delay. Now woven with leaner dancefloor muscle, the deeply funked views of 'Re-Engineering' are characterised by the artist as a "cybernetic poem". We can take this quite literally in his use of spoken word in pieces such as 'Re-Engineering' with its Chris Morris-esque wordplay, and the alliterative suppositions of 'Speculation', or in more abstract terms on his sound poem, 'Accelerationista', but it's maybe best understood as the artist taking license to dissect and distill the world around him. Making reference to the philosophies of Timothy Morton and Manuel DeLanda, his music implies connections between the microcosmic systems of dance music and the liquid ecology of emergent economies, cities, plants, populations and cybernetic feedback. We hear this as a mix of Brazilian samba thru Oasis covers on the U-Bahn to ambiguous field recordings meshed with the sexiest, sinuous house grooves synching spoiled sample textures with oily yet frictional rhythms bent for the corporeal. It's a visceral album that gets under your skin, sparking your bonce, beautifully balancing concept and effect with playful dexterity. We love it and reckon you might, too...
