Early 80’s minimal electro post-punk outfit Ike Yard receive further remix treatment from a wicked selection of current players. This set follows remixes from Regis, Tropic Of Cancer, Fred Szymanski and Arnaud Rebotini. Stepping up here we have Powell, The KVB, Vessel and Bandshell all of whom I’m pretty into.
First to the table is Powell who is quite probably a fan of the original material, doing what he does best; post-punk infused techno dropping in snatches of chosen cut ‘Half Of God', looping parts, laying down some beats and working in an infectious funk heavy groove seamlessly integrating both organic and electronic elements. Dropping in snippets of “real” bass like he does so expertly.
The KVB go all dreamy and ethereal post-punk, doing what sounds like more of a cover version than a remix of ‘Cherish 8’. Any fans of the band, of which I know there are many will surely enjoy this version.
Vessel (Liberation Technologies / Tri-Angle) also opts to tackle ‘Cherish 8’ smearing in some lovely Bristol dub action into the post-punk grooves following a lineage that harks back to Mark Stuart and co. Certainly the most deliciously freakily, out-there mix of the bunch.
Finally Bandshell (Liberation Technologies / Hessle Audio) serves up a raw and rugged very primitive beat, growling bass and fizzling/ hissy static rendition of ‘NRW’. An excellent and diverse remix package.
Edition of 500 copies on grey wax.
