Posthuman // Nebula (Remixes) [Acroplane Recordings]
We recently cast a critical ear over Posthuman’s electrofantastic Nebula EP, indulging in all sounds future. Following up this superb release, Acroplane have sourced a crop of remixers at the cutting edge of the sonic blade.
Planet Mu’s Boxcutter steps onto the stage under his new The Host moniker, and proceeds to fire out a Maschinengewehr 42-esque flurry of juke percussion and 80′s B-movie horror synths when tackling Marrus Environ. More obviously linked to the original, Nightwave takes the acidic bassline and begins firing rave grade breaks and relentless warehouse clap rhythms over the top, doing it like we used to back in 1992.
Tessier Ashpool gets given a kick right in the exciters by techno master Kirk Degiorgio, a hypnotic acid workout full of computerised bleeps and a relentless mechanic motion, the sort of commanding groove that purses lips and encourages frowns. At the other end of the spectrum, Datassette slide out a slick slow kick and finger click foundation, letting higher end and faster percussion scatter and glitch in the gaps, while dub chords and grainy textures gather over an ominous looking horizon.
Four remixes, four different pictures of a diversifying current electronic scene which is seeing genre boundaries blurred.
