Boomkat Product Review:
Japanese dubstep OG Prettybwoy follows his fwd-thinking 'Tayutau' syfy club excursion with remixes from Mr. Mitch, Cooly G, Pinch and DJ Q. All killer no filler...
Firstly, if u missed the original album u should remedy that, it's airlock club gold, gassed up with wyrd pop nrg. Once that's sorted, make ur way to this remix pack that loops Prettybwoy's recent stylistic shift back to the Brit-wave bass scene he cut his teeth exploring. Mr. Mitch's version leads the EP, and the versatile, shapeshifting producer locks onto Prettybwoy's pressurized kicks for direction, reshaping them into a heaving, post-Andy Stott sidechained throb. It's the vocals from miles that push the mix over the edge tho, grafting a soulful, psychedelic limb to the melancholy, bass-heavy alt pop form.
Cooly G's take on 'Island' removes the track from its tangle of industrial machinery, leaving barely a trace of the original in her lilting neo-funky shakes. DJ Q takes lIlI's smoove vocal from 'Destination' and gives it the choppy Todd Edwards treatment, injecting his expected bassline grin, and Pinch finishes things off with a dystopian sub-heavy roller that moves closest into the neon-lit landscape of the original album. Good stuff all round.
