Voltaic: The Volta Mixes
Released: Jun 2009
Bjork left the nightclub long ago, but she continues to sneak back in via some of the edgiest remixes ever to slit open a dancefloor. Tackling tracks from 2007's Volta, Voltaic runs the gamut from Alva Noto's tilted pinball meltdown to XXXChange's no-nonsense punky electro disco. Matthew Herbert skulks past the DJ booth with a charred guitar amp tucked under his arm, while Modeselektor, Simian Mobile Disco and Sinden offer alternately sleek and bleepy variations on a techno theme.
