by Battles
Dross Glop by Battles
Released: Apr 2012
Label: Warp Records
There's lots of latent energy in Battles' music: All that snap and twang soaks up force like a coiled spring, which makes remixing them an interesting proposition. How do you re-animate music that's already so alive? Several of the remixers here practice a kind of reverse alchemy, taking Battles' brilliant baubles and melting them down into sullen gray lumps of techno. Others lead Battles stylistically far afield, as with Kode9's bright, bumpy U.K. funky, while Qluster turn the carnivalesque "Dominican Fade" into a lilting ballad somewhere between Kraftwerk and Jon Hassell.
