Boomkat Product Review:
The increasingly spot on Echochord musters a canny wish list of remixers for their fifth release. Dub Tractor’s Anders Remmer, fresh from his recent, tune-laden City Centre Offices album length outing ‘More Or Less Mono’ heads back to his dubby roots here, sounding like a recycled jamaican pressing of a moment in time when Prince Jammy’s fisher reverbs translated him into King status. This is truly ascendant material, losing us in whorls of digital, but strangely still analogue dub, rolling out apparently without boundary or restriction. Jelinek’s “Loop Finding Remix” punctuates his beloved vinyl static with simple wood block and a sensitive, tactile mood. The shape comes from the understatement, a tune more for the headphones than the big systems, though the development of a sinuous line of melody in the piece, brightening like the sun rising, could easily lend itself to some chilled momets of slow, emotional beauty. Lowfour, or Anders Tilliander undercover, plumps for an uncompromising thump, all about the bottom end and much the better for it. Gorgeous.
