Triple R - Friends Are Silence

Riley Reinhold collaborates with four of his buds on five separate tracks, and if you can believe it, only two tracks here do the “talking sample set to ass beat” thing. One of the offenders, the Jorge Gebauhr-assisted “Tengo Suerte Esta Noche,” has that train-whistle doppler effect sound though, which raises the question: Can one cliché excuse another? Negative times a negative equals a positive or something? Keep in mind the track might be making some kind of political statement. After that, skip to “Polyester.” Remute by his side, Triple R first goes for filterhouse but refuses to drop a steady beat, let his pastels breathe, etc., until he absolutely must. The break comes quiet but pitchbent and cocksure, though with all those Mouse on Mars microrhythms on either side I wonder if this wouldn’t make for a better IDM track. Five years ago, that’s a no-brainer.

Remute - Please Say Something

Christopher Just’s remix is the one to check here. That is, if you like huge invasive 4/4s and vulgar distorted basslines, plus squeaky noises and triumphant string breakdowns which sound a bit like Daft Punk making trance music. It’s soiled a little by a slightly annoying outro, with contains a stupid vocal sample that sounds a little like “yip, yo, yip yip yo” and the tempo of this will be recognised by clubbers as the “asshole with a whistle” riddim, but these are mild irritations: this record will probably be pretty big.

Dominik Eulberg - Flora & Fauna Remixe Teil 1 & 2

Domink Eulberg, besides being a talented producer, is also a geography and biology student in Germany these days, if you couldn’t tell from the title and cover of his most recent Traum full-length offering Flora & Fauna, that is. Or, as Discogs succinctly puts it: “his music and his live is linked very close with nature” (sic). All I know is that the first track on the CD version of the album translates as “the invasion of the bag cancers” (sic, I hope?). In any case, Traum further celebrates the release of his record late last year with this batch of two remix 12”’s. On the first slab, André Kraml turns in a measured reworking of “Der Purpurrote Sonnenuntergang Am Schilfumsäumten Bergsee,” in which he borrows some sounds from Ada on the way to satisfying clomp through the woods. Justin Maxwell is on the B-side remixing aforementioned bag cancers, in that imitable cut-up-by-numbers-manner. Not exactly memorable, but pleasant nonetheless.

The real action occurs on the second part of the remix 12”’s, where Remute reconfigures “Die Trottellummen Von Helgoland” into a barreling mix of Arealian distortion and pounding riffage. As it turns itself into overdrive mode halfway through, you’ll undoubtedly find yourself banging your head accordingly. Hrdvsion takes a swirling synth and jerks it around for the length of his mix of “Das Röhren Der Rotwildbrunft,” slicing it to within an inch of its life, while Adam Kroll finishes the whole thing off with an epic and stately build on his version of “Keine Nieten Bei Den Herbstzeitlosen.”
