Ben Lukas Boysen hands over his tracks Golden Times 1 and ‘Nocturne 4’ (taken from the album Spells) to both Max Cooper and Tim Hecker(!) for some vivid and idiosyncratic reworkings. The EP is rounded out with a new Boysen original in the form of ‘Evensong’. 12” on Erased Tapes.

7/10 Jamie Staff review, 28 June 2017

It’s time for Ben ‘Twinkling Neo-classical is my middle name’ Boysen -- oh no wait, it’s actually Lukas, my bad -- and a new 12” from him featuring a highlight from his lilting and generally lovely album from last year, Spells. The original album version of Golden Times 1 features on the A1, wherein his piano sounds like a heavenly scaling harp alongside a bass synth pulse and weeping cello.

It comes across very Clint Mansell atmospherical-soundtrack-y, I’m getting ‘High Rise’ vibes here. It’s remixed on the flip side however, by none other than Max Cooper -- known, of course, for his melodic house and techno productions but also for his stargazing ambient flourishes. He provides the 4/4 beats, muted claps and, 4 minutes in, hi-hats; matching the original track’s tempo with added found-sound textures and propellant synth stabs. Nice, but nothing special.

It’s the Hecker remix of Nocturne 4 a lot of you will be eager to hear. The original piece is pulled apart and mutated via Tim’s granular synthesis method. It’s a fragmented, breaking down, emotional blender of a track. Truly lovely and hypnotic. He really does do ambience unlike anybody else.
