Boomkat Product Review:
Basic Reshape features Basic Channel's very free takes on two of Carl Craig's projects, originally released seperately from each other on his own Planet E label.
The Basic Reshape of "The Climax" (originally released in 1991 on Retroactive) first appeared on the 2001 reissue of this milestone in Carl's work. For those of you who don't know it, this is definitive, driving, hypnotic club music that rebuilt the tribal mastery of the original into a logic-defying display of bass shuffles and aquatic percussion that kills us every time it's aired - just awesome.
"Remake" Basic Reshape from 1994 relates to "Remake Uno/Duo", Carl's sample-based re-interpretation of Manuel Göttschings epochal E2-E4. Basic Channel take a radical, abstract, sample-free approach with a breathtaking slow motion groove under a multilayered sound sphere.
