D.Hansen’s latest transmission for the blossoming Where To Now label isn’t his loudest or perhaps his most pronounced work yet, but it may well prove his boldest. Despite all the introductory torrents of clattering sounds on ‘Low Voice’, the two 10-minute pieces explore Hansen’s relationship with foreign objects and the way they react in environments that are familiar to him, creating something that’s more a sound art installation than a fully-blown drone piece.
Scandinavian disco nobility, Lindstrøm, returns to the console after an almost two-year studio hiatus. Albeit not original material, these buoyant remixes of bluesy rock troupe, Band of Skulls, function quite charmingly. If Russell Marsden’s vocals don’t appeal, then there’s a useful instrumental remix for you which is assisted by a dub-disco mix from Blue Lotus and an alternative from The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach.
Such a cracking little album released a few months ago by Freestyle Records, it wasn’t going to be long before they set some of the bass scene’s luminaries upon the cuts. Pulling out one of the standout tracks for a tasty bass cubed remix is Kahn, immediately sliding the fader into dutty dancehall licks with an exotic Middle Eastern spice and extra dread sauce.
