Boomkat Product Review:
Part 2 of a 2 part set. Solvent, aka Jason Amm, has been making his inimitable brand of robot pop since the mid 90s, simultaneously co-running the revered Suction label since 1997. One of the few real classics from the new synth era, Solvent's 'my radio' originally appeared on ghostly's standard-setting 'Disco Nouveau' collection, and is released here with remixes across two discs, along with new single 'For You' and attendant versions. All mixes extend to full re-interpretations, with each artist encouraged to add elements of their own to the original sound source. Legowelt turns it from a melancholy ode into a full on body music workout, while the bizarre but funky pop of 'For You' is given a fattened up club re-rub by fellow Suction owner Lowfish and Isan reduce the song into an opaque near-ambient reflection of it's former self. Yum.
