Channel Pressure Remixes
Released: Oct 2011
Ford & Lopatin's Channel Pressure, which lovingly evokes the bright, optimistic tones of mid-'80s synth pop, gets reworked by a diverse crew of remixers. They all sound unusually inspired by the material. The Bug turns in a particularly lysergic brand of dub, while Alan Braxe refashions the "French Touch" as a gentle caress. Optimo's JD Twitch delivers a highlight with the slow-mo funk of "Joey Rogers," and Gavin Russom and Legowelt both show off their analog panache.
