- Stereotype by Mark Stewart (featuring Factory Floor)
8/10 Brian Staff review, 28 September 2012
Weird one this, I never heard Stewart’s latest album or much of his Mafia stuff at all. the guy is a top personality but should stop ligging with useless twats like Primal Scream if I’m to be blunt, I’m still trying to get my head round the caustic maze that is ‘Y’ by the Pop Group, an album that fascinates, thrills, repulses and delights me all at once.
This twin remix set of ‘Stereotype’ from his recent album is curious stuff, some mixes are electroclash bland whilst others such as the guy from Front 242’s effort with its bleak early Visage/Human League-style synth arpeggio, wonderful driving beat and sense of atmosphere are amazing. I fucking hate Front 242 as well but I dig this cool astral-gazing remix massively. The Perc re-fix is also damn fine, being a sharp rhythmical techno roller with Nik Void’s disembodied vocal laced through it. Sounds a bit like when Carl Craig remixed Adult. for a tenuous reference? Not arsed about the opening side particularly so let’s check out the other part of the set shall we?
The Murderbot versions are really good and quite interesting, working on that old post-Planet Mu vibe by building an abstract digital dancehall/garage hybrid and then injecting in a sharp footwork element to construct both mix and a dub versions. These are spacious, focused, yet minimal, I reckon the dub version works even better. A nice pacey, atmospheric reworking that I bet retains hardly any of the original song!
The actual Mark Stewart man himself conjures up an all-too-brief Death in Vegas-style ceiling scorcher which is pretty epic and pumping with a Sharp electo-esque saunter and one of those classic cyber-hoover rave breakdown for e’d up ravers to shit themselves with pleasure too.Hype Williams finish off the set with a really excellent and completely abstract mix which relies on moody cinematic synthesized strings, awkward beat-punches and a sample of Void’s detached vocal that ends up sounding like somewhere between Kim Gordon and Valerie from Lali Puna. If you like Hype Williams a great deal like many of us do, It may be worth buying this double pack just for this. It’s that good and ends up with alarm bells, a malfunctioning see-saw synth and swathes of astral noise. HW...Always different, always impressive...Fuckin’ A.
