Choice cuts from the 'Letherette' album get tweaked out by Barker & Baumecker, Bibio, and Jimmy Edgar. The filtered boogie burn of 'After Dawn' is treated to a darker, flightier techno remix by Barker & Baumecker built around moody Reese bassline and skipping, aerodynamic garage-techno drums, whilst Bibio amps the original's '80s electr-boogie bump with ample deck-party vibes. One of our favourite album tracks, the juicy boogie-house play, 'Restless' gets a fibrillating, late night Chicago 2025 remix by Jimmy Edgar.

Cat. Number: 39BC

If Pye Corner Audio made happy hardcore it might sound like (James) Holden's wonderful 'Illuminations'. Originally embedded at the core of his excellent 'Inheritors' album in shorter form, here he gives its vaulting arpeggios and bouncing, wired techno rhythm more space and time to frolic, coming off like an '80s educational TV soundtrack played by a mischievous VHS player at double speed. With 'The Illuminations (Drumsolo)' he detaches its skittish chassis as a tracky, bouncy DJ tool apart from the lushly innocent, spiralling vortex of 'The Illuminations (Arpsolo)'.

This is in fact his third solo album to date, and his second for Kranky following 2010's 'Deft', diverting Lethargy & Repercussions; and it takes us further from Camden's shoegazing roots into the realm of pure cosmic electronics. The zero-gravity synth terraforming of curtain-raiser 'Spectacle' puts us in mind of Emeralds man Steve Hauschildt's solo sides, while the magnificent 'Eta Carinae' combines the sound palette of Dieter Moebius's Tonspuren with a haunting, almost medievalist folk app… Read more

A standout moment from Pinch & Shackleton's eponymous LP, backed with a truly majestic Morphosis remix. The original serves up molten noise, skittish post-junglist rhythms and mystic vibes galore, but if we're honest the highlight is Rabih Beani's side. His revision is much longer and even trippier than the original, seemingly dosed up on valium and vino for an exceptionally smudged out and midnight-hued electro-jazz appeal. The spirit of the original is still present but received differently, the vocals sounding liek some long lost Chris & Cosey session while the gauzy, distant drums feel like an opiated Ike Yard. It's quite unmissable.
