Turzi – Condor (Matias Aguayo Version) (2015)


Chilean-born, now Germany-based man of many talents Matias Aguayo has been tapped to rework “Condor,” a cut from French outfit Turzi’s forthcoming C LP for the Record Makers label. Originally a five-minute jaunt through futuristic psych territory, Aguayo reshapes “Condor” into an altogether bouncier affair, lacing the track with infectious layers of percussion while taming the wild sonic spurts of Turzi’s original into more controlled rises in momentum (which are further enhanced by the string of woozy synth lines that appear in the production’s second half).

Beat Spacek – I Want You (Animal Collective Remix) (2015)


Beat Spacek is the latest project from UK vocalist/producer Steve Spacek, a man who should really need no introduction. With boundless abilities, his work transcends genre and style – instead focusing more on swing, melody, vibe and atmosphere. From his legendary output with the band Spacek – Curvatia (2001), Vintage Hi-Tech (2003); solo work on the cult Sound In Color imprint and collaborations with the late, great J.Dilla; to his under-the-radar Black Pocket project for dBridge’s Exit Records and his most recent work with Mark Pritchard as one half of Africa HiTech, his fearless approach to creation has always been progressive and highly original.

RN9 – Rotunda (Four Tet Refix) (2013)


In what might be the greatest Soundcloud comment of all time or at least today, someone described this Four Tet refix of RN9’s “Rotunda” as like being at Mardi Gras in a submarine. This is underwater party music, voodoo bells and veiled street shouts and the feeling of being submerged. Four Tet has always sought to pair seemingly contradictory sounds, so there’s the street festival polyrhythm merging with thumping minimal techno. [Source]
