V/A :: World Electronix Remixes (Cultivated Electronics)

Some of the most talented musicians in electronics reinterpreting each other’s work, what more could be wanted?

The World Electronix series have been very successful, sold out in shops and very well received by the faithful. Some of the best and brightest of machine music have been represented on a quartet of 12″s, including E.R.P., Plant43, Morphology, J.T.C.,  Silicon Scally, Boris Divider and many more. Now Cultivated Electronics is casting their eyes back over the series, four like-minded artists remixing some favorites from across the 12”s.

The Hacker is up first, the legendary French producer interpreting Morphology’s “Darkstar.” A heavy floor destroyer is the serving, gritted teeth and fists in the air (or face) with some seriously sinister undertones.   Next we’re off to Britain as label boss Sync 24 pours lime on The Exaltics’ “Ten Days”. The skin of the original boils, caustic and corrosive Acid scorn bubbling through punishing snares and cruel distortion.  Staying in the UK DMX Krew, a newcomer to CE, gives his take of J.T.C’s  “In Transit.” The original is honestly followed; speed and extra rasp being added. Remaining on the island, but going north of the border to Glasgow, Marco Bernardi closes the 12″, remoulding “Ah Ah Ah” by Sync 24 & Deixis with his Morbider Mix. Greasy, grimy bars squirm against lancing claps for an abstract and insular finale.

I’m not sure if this remix 12” marks an end to World Electronix, or the beginning of an extended reworking project (hopefully the latter.) Some of the most talented musicians in electronics reinterpreting each other’s work, what more could be wanted?

World Electronix remixes is available on Cultivated Electronics.
