Kompakt Records continue THE ORB’s SIN IN SPACE remix EP series with a third volume focussing on the duo’s latest full-length, COW / CHILL OUT, WORLD!. The spontaneous, organic vibe and sample artistry of the album is reflected in three reworks from Kompakt mainstays THE FIELD, DAVE DK and JÖRG BURGER – all of them informed with surprising twists and displaying a clear lineage to the source material.
THE FIELD’s remix of 9 ELMS OVER RIVER ENO takes the original’s percussive part and unfolds it to a swirling, tropical epic that alludes as much to The Orb’s multifaceted sound collages as it does to the hypnotic, looping flow of The Field’s own output. Meanwhile, DAVE DK turns in a club- friendly revamp of 4AM EXHALE with the fittingly titled ACCELLERATOR MIX, indulging in exquisitely lyrical glitches and the magic of the straight bassdrum. JÖRG BURGER takes a shot at the beatless 5TH DIMENSIONS with the excellent DSCHUNGELOPER MIX – its loose pop jam feeling and flirty shuffle rhythm recall Burger’s lush lounge core efforts under his Triola monicker. A sweeping digital bonus track comes from Pop Ambient staple LEANDRO FRESCO, whose revamp of WIRELESS MK2 rounds out this package with its sumptuous soundscapes and a keen sense for textural detail.
