Salon Des Amateurs (Remixes)
Released: Sep 2012
Label: Fatcat Records
A good remixer can spin gold out of any old straw, but it undoubtedly helps to have good material to work with. That's certainly the case here, as Michael Mayer, Matthew Herbert and others tackle the tickled ivories of Hauschka's Salon des Amateurs, an album of sumptuous, techno-inspired jams for prepared piano. These interpretations range widely, from Hauntologists' mechanical re-thread to Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer's meandering groove fantasia. Vladislav Delay's murky rework is a reclusive standout, while Vainqueur strips away the piano to reveal pure dub-techno pulse.
