It’s had a remix! Lackluster and his friends present this wonderful package of remixes taken from his recent 12” single (foc349). We decided not to go for the obvious big names to remix this music; instead we chose to work with artists in the same vein as Lackluster himself.

We stumbled across Esa Ruoho via the WWW, as that is where he had released his music via mp3. There is a generation of music makers that don’t see commercial releases as playing an important role in their career. Instead they see mp3’s as a way of letting people hear their music and that is what is important to them.

BrothomStates (Lassi Nikko) is of the same like mind although he has released the odd track on selected compilations. He has been writing music seriously for 12 years and only in the past two years has he bought some electronic gear.

Bauri (Martin Abrahamsson) handed in a very Metamatics sounding mix of Cull Streak, and since he has been writing music for 7 years, has managed to line up a release with City Centre Offices. Xhale (Erik Skodvin) makes his debut with this; an old school Autechre approach to ‘Meanwhile’. Sense (Adam Raisbeck) went all out for minimal beauty! Adam lives in Australia and is hoping to release a project with Jeff Mills for Axis!

All together these mixes make for a chilled summers evening listen.
