Ghost Notes Remixes
26th August 2016
Switching from the analogue to the digital, we’re back with a follow-up to “Ghost Notes” – Radicall’s latest album. We’re talking about a digital-only four-track remix EP. In case you were wondering what you get when you combine a super talent with even more super talents, this EP is your answer. Radicall lends his signature blend of atmospheric backgrounds, fat basslines, and rolling and crisp beats to serve as an input material to be reshaped by the likes of LM1, Handra, Future Engineers, and Silence Groove; each of them a master of their own trade, and each of them with a different take on the main theme. LM1 turns “Quantum” into a steady-flowing Offworld-ish atmospheric roller, Handra transform “Silent Voices” into a smooth, no-frills dancefloor-esque stepper, Future Engineers offer a techmospheric hard-stepping rendition of “Superior Dark”, and Silence Groove closes the EP by adding a fantastic atmo-jungle twist to “Femme Fatale”. Excellence reinterpreted.
