about

In the electro-dance track “Empire of Dust” by Anodyne, dust is just a word in the title. But in Esa Ruoho’s remix of that track, which is released here, you can really hear, feel and taste the dust settling everywhere. This is why “Parched Throat” is a perfect title for this rework.

Instead of some seven minutes like the original, the rework by Finnish composer-producer Esa Ruoho aka Lackluster lasts well over an hour. Everything that used to be beats and melodies has been pulverised into drifting audio grit, sheets of hiss covering the dunes of harmonics that are left over from extensive time-stretching operations performed on the previous material. Esa Ruoho does to the original track what time and desert climate have done to the monuments of ancient cultures – he erodes them, only to eventually take the role of the archaeologist and uncover some fragments that are beautiful in their own right.
