DeLIEN: User Interface Rmx tape (Detroit Industrial/Void, 2016)November 20, 2016 at 11:01 pm | Posted in Reviews | Leave a comment
Last year, DeLIEN released an incredible tape called Identity Annex. This tape gathers a bunch of remixes of one of the tracks, and it tears the track apart in tons of different directions. The insanely talented Redhat from Philadelphia does some sort of opera/breakcore/Biggie mashup thing. Selector Catalogue’s mix is typically restless and explosive, but there is a short pause in the middle to reflect. Baseck’s is a bit more low-down and wompy, but there’s a ton of voices buried underneath, as well as some acid synths. Chris Samuels does a more straightforward industrial mix. Split Horizon slices it to bits with his twitchy, stammering version. Once you’ve listened to the original tape, check out this one on Bandcamp.
