- Violetshaped Remixes (Part One) by Roly Porter / Vatican Shadow / Kangding Ray

This is a super remix package from three heavy hitters. First up is Roly Porter (formerly of Vex'd). I think his album got a bit overlooked upon release as Jamie Vex'd (Kuedo) seemed to be gathering all the hype. If you've not checked it then get on the case. Here Roly turns is a grand seven and a half minute brooder with gargantuan cavernous drones that sound like tectonic plates shifting across magma. These are punctuated with colossal bass drops that sound like the plates rubbing together - an earthquake. It's kinda somewhere between Lustmord and Emptyset. A seriously heavy tune full of tension, brooding darkside atmospherics and on the money sound design.
Dominick Fernow (Prurient) gets to grips with Delusory Parasitosis under his Vatican Shadow pseudonym. I've been somewhat obsessing over the Vatican Shadow material since it emerged. Being a massive Prurient fan and a total techno freak it's a marriage made in heaven (or hell!) for me. This is a strong remix with militant industrial techno beats, providing a rugged foundation for the lovely synth melodies that emerge. The percussion feels like it's constantly building towards a crescendo and will surely have the dark ravers under it's spell. Top drawer stuff that builds on some of his obvious influences like Sandwell district.
Finally David Letellier AKA Kangding Ray (Raster-Noton) remixes 'The Oven' in his inimitable style. Here he serves up an ace of precise mid-tempo techno with thumping off beat kicks, rattling hi-hats, acidic synths and clanking industrial machine vibes. Cold grooves that manage to be funky are this guys forte. He doesn't release much material but when he does it's always on point.
Each mix is worthy the price of admission alone. To get three this good on one plate is pure joy. Cannot wait to see who's on the next remix package.
