Extralife A little bit of everything that makes Brian Granger so good on tap here. Really well sequenced set of remixes...great for long road trips. Favorite track: Jour Dans La Nuit [Coppice Halifax Assemblage].

about

The eleventh volume of the mountainous Cmx series, which collects Coppice Halifax remix works and sequences them into coherent album-like entities. This volume opens with a unique track commissioned by Always Human Tapes for their concept-compilation cassette "Mount Real - Music To The Motion Picture" - bearing the name Lioness, this piece meanders and slowly blooms across almost nine minutes, and is built almost entirely out of samples from a number of vinyl sides from Loretta Lynn, Simon & Garfunkel, M.I.A. and Buffalo Springfield.

Following Lioness is a previously unreleased remix for Cetra, a Scottish musician perhaps better known as Mosca, which undulates with heavy synth chords and a Kompakt-like schaffel beat. The club vibe fully emerges on the "Circuit Burst" mix of Nntblst's Risset Overtones, a heavy dancefloor locomotive, bubbling over with white noise sweeps, spastic arps and hollowed out acid bass. After the workout is over, the chillout tent centerpiece Screener36 remix creeps in - sounding perhaps closer to early Aphex Twin than any other CH track to date. In the wake of the ambient techno bliss-out, the eleven minute "Live In The Dark Room" mix for Oxynucid's acid techno romp subtly invades the space, stripping back Oxynucid's harsh analog arps and pounding rhythms and melting them down into a smooth smoky dub. With nowhere left to go, the bottom drops out with a 17 minute Magic Arrows remix, swirling and psychedelic with spattered guitars and clouds of melody everywhere, until a slow tropical bassline anchored to a head-nod break drives us home. This closing piece should also not-so-delicately hint at what is to be expected from Peppermint Carousels, the soon to be debuted collaboration between Magic Arrows and Coppice Halifax.

Altogether, a vibrant trip through sound fields both Halifaxian and foreign, which is what the Cmx albums continue to so effectively communicate. Remixing remains one of the most stimulating challenges for my studio, and I'm always content to hear the returns this series yields over the years.
