Thread Remixes (inc Radio Slave, Ozel Ab
Artikelnummer: 1957065 / PH66RMX
The EBM-indebted techno funk of James Welsh's 'Thread' reemerges from the industrial fog, evolved into three outstanding remixes by a trio of established, emerging and somewhat unexpected artists.~~~~Ozel AB delivers his debut remix, reimagining Thread to encompass a widescreen vision of depth and drama. Unfolding slowly and ethereally, with military kicks holding down a seemingly weightless, extended breakdown, his taste in dreamlike rave euphoria contains the same magic touch as it has done on previous, acclaimed releases for Workshop and Lobster Theremin.~~~~On his 'Garten' remix, Radio Slave takes a percussive approach to the relatively raw electronics of the original track, adding a deceptively simple but immediately effective layer of drums to the production, before unleashing a more filtered and fucked-up interpretation of the riff to winning effect.~~~~Finally, FC Kahuna may have been off-the-map for some time, but return here with a distinctive, playful and digital-exclusive take on Thread. Adding intriguing tension, whistling rave kettles and even a sense of the whimsical and the exotic to the original production, surprisingly silky flutes occasionally mingle with Welsh's initial acidic aesthetic.
