Remix EP – Feel/ Fear & Love
Artists – Peter Hope /David Harrow
Label – KiNETik Records
Genre – Electronic/ Experimental.
Two months ago a very special square, yet round, transparent record from Greece-based Independent label KiNETiK Records was released, delivering the latest Pete Hope (Wrong Revolution) & David Harrow‘s https://workhouse.us/ written, recorded, produced and performed collaboration, titled (A) side – ‘Feel’ (B) side – Fear & Love. This release is a limited edition with 50 distinctively packaged pressings in which I am proud to have the 29th press amongst my collection.
If you don’t happen to collect vinyl or you missed the opportunity to get your mitts on this specific piece of surprisingly shaped, experimental sounding wax then the cosmos is swaying in your favour as the Ep has broadened its horizon by being released in digital format which presents 3 stellar remixes of the original tracks from Dylan Davis, ( dyLAB ) Henri Sizaret ( AkA ) & David Harrow (Oicho) reshaping the atmosphere and mood of the originals by sliding through a deep techno groove and picking up dark acid and IBM swag along the way. Which resulted in all proceeds magically turning into electricity!
Portugal based producer, AKA’s remix presents the dehumanization of Pete Hopes modern lyrical poetry, distorting the track in a robotic, heavy beat-driven hypnotic way with a deep chunky retro feel to the tracks overall mood. Henry’s remix offers sharp, penetrating synth textures with masses of warm fuzz and depth to embed yourself in from the dynamic mid-ranges and bassline, as where Australian based producer dyLAB throws down a unique concoction of bubbling acid undercurrents through a tantalizing lo-fi lyrical reconfiguration, combined with a minimalist feel towards the overall feel of the track. There most certainly is a dense atmosphere to dyLAB’s remix which has been contrastingly combined with a spaciousness and detachment, I suppose this is the closest i am going to know what it feels like to be an air module inside a sheet of bubble wrap…..Overall this is a a very distinctive acid track!
United States based producer Oicho throws down an exquisitely trippy take on the original, with prominent distorted lyrical reconfiguration, combined to an entrancing, hypno beat, glued together by a warm fuzzy undercurrent which stands to be the actual life-line to stopping one from losing their senses completely down the back of the sofa, along with their granny…..
Overall an idiosyncratic selection of remixes by a trio of exceptional producers.
