Boomkat Product Review:
Libby Floyd's new album under the Doubtful Guest moniker is just around the corner, but in the meantime label boss Mike Paradinas and Gigue deliver a couple of remixes each of 2006's 'Electrobot" to build momentum. Gigue opens the set with an absolutely ace reworking, full-on pitched drums dominating the mix in a classic Aphex stylee, dusted and squelched up in a textbook braindance fashion - very nice indeed. Mu-ziq's "Junobotz" remix is next and raves it up with demented acid squelches and hoover sounds, while his "demestos" mix on the flip rolls out the drill and bass presets for another masterclass in how to write haunting music for the floor. Gigue ends the twelve off with the "Mind Insurgent" mix, a slowed down funky drummer variation complete with more classic Aphexisms and wonky melodies. Come to think of it, who exactly IS Gigue? good stuff - highly recommended!
