Today, Rough Trade is releasing “XI Versions of Black Noise”, the remix appendix to Pantha Du Prince’s latest album. If you would like to try before you buy, you can listen to the stream of the entire album. Almost every track either has already been released (digitally or physically) or could have been listened to before, so we’ll take a closer look at the reconstructions that haven’t been released so far. Maestro Moritz Von Oswald drenches “Welt Am Draht” in ethereal cream and buries the Hendrik Webber’s trademark percussive melodies under tons of echo, for one of the best remixes of the package. German duo Die Vögel have made the most heterodox remix of them all, turning “Welt Am Draht” into a fantasy dominated by brass instruments, which, however, maintains the bucolic feel of the original. Experimentation also rules on the remix by Hieroglyphic Being, alias Jamal Moss. The Chicago artist twists “Satellite Spinner” into a very dark amalgamation of proto-industrial sounds that contrasts with the sparse angelic melodies surfacing as the song advances. The record is completed by the already known remixes by Lawrence, Four Tet, The Sight Below, Efdemin, Carsten Jost, Animal Collective, Fata Morgana and Walls. A perfect complement for “Black Noise” (Rough Trade, 2010) that compensates for the lack of news with exaggerated doses of quality. If you want to hear it, click here.
