m89 include me out UK


The Monika Werkstatt collective hoo-ha 20 year celebration comp this year is the Compilation of the Year (contemporary), along with another UK comp (old stuff), which I’ve yet to review but will soon – and here are some remixes. They’re not quite as impressive as the originals but these five tracks are nothing to turn your nose up about, or to, or whatever you do with your nose (it’s your business). Lucrecia Dalt’s Blindholes – Borusiade Version is a classy cybernetic shuffle through time and space; quite the thing through headphones (or ear buds, as I believe they’re known today. I used to wear ex-British Airways ‘phones when DJ-ing…I like to think they encouraged me to ‘fly’ behind the Technics). Danielle de Picciotto’s Desert Fruit – Perera Elsewhere version is also noteworthy, the way the beat dissolves into a chasm of disturbing sounds.
