Evergreen Liverpudlian krautpoppers Clinic came up with their strongest offerings to date last year with ‘Free Reign’ and on this LP Daniel “Oneohtrix Point Never” Lopatin has been tinkering around in that album’s innards to create a new and different mix of the record.

Structurally things remain pretty much as they were on the original, but things are often pared right back to a minimal electrokraut throb replete with some extra spaced out synths. The result is a woozy, almost dubby take on the record, with more of a cold mechanical Germanic feel sometimes replacing the original’s warm repeato grooves, but that added hardness certainly suits the repetitive nature of the music and presents the familiar songs in a fresh new light. Also notable is a song that wasn’t on ‘Free Reign’, ‘Done And Dusted II’, which is a shuddering, metronomic delight. This is stupidly limited too (only 150 for the British Isles apparently) so if you want it then don’t hang about; I imagine all ours will be gone by the time of our weekly update on Friday.
