Boomkat Product Review:
Wanna hear Rustie covering Elektroids? Autechre covering LFO? Leila covering Aphex Twin? or Hudson Mohawke re-working Jimi Tenor? Look no further cos as part of their 20 years celebrations, Warp have hatched the brilliant concept of inviting their current roster to revisit classic tracks from the back catalogue with their own interpretations. It's a mixed bag for sure, with a few real curveballs and unexpected delights to be found spread over the two discs. Jimi Tenor's tropical jazz-funk version of the Elektroids' 'Japanese Electronics' sets the agenda brilliantly, and even Maximo Park sound great covering Vincent Gallo's 'When'. Rustie must have relished the opportunity to redo Elektroids 'Midnight Drive', as evidenced by his gorgeously nuanced aquafunk scramble, and Autechre's mix of 'What Is House' defines that title with a spooky synthline rework before Russell Haswell decimates Wild Planet's 'Cabasa Cabasa' with advanced processing techniques to turn it into a mulch of electronic noise freakily retaining some semblance of rhythm. Mark Pritchard provides a tender mix of of BDP's '3/4 Heart', Mira Calix and Oliver Coates remake BoC's 'In A Beautiful Place Out In The Country' as a neo-classical composition with lush strings and field recordings, and Leila imagines AFX's sublime 'Vordhosbn' as a creaky cinematic score for an unmade seafaring epic. If you've got a spare evening, you could set up your own listening party with some mates and a few bottles of pop and try to figure out who did which tracks without looking at the tracklisting, then again... Excellent stuff!
