Reso - Tangram RemixedRelease date 1st April 2013
Format: 12” / Digital
Reso ‘Tangram Remixed’ features KOAN Sound, Om Unit, Billain and Doshy remixes on the 12″ vinyl plus the digital bundle also includes Starkey, Drop The Lime, DJ Kentaro, Danny Scrilla, Evol Intent and Emperor remixes.
Since the latter half of the last decade, Alex Melia aka Reso has been blending heightened technological futurism with dancefloor prowess to create a densely cinematic musical universe. ‘Tangram’ – Reso’s much anticipated debut album – was released in Nov 2012. It received heavy support from Mixmag (Album of the month), XLR8R, Guardian, MTV, The 405, XFM and other key musical luminaries such as Liam Howlett, Skrillex, Skream & Benga, DJ Food, Salva, Rusko and more. A landmark thirteen track odyssey that reaffirms the place of the ‘album’ within modern electronic music, ‘Tangram’ cemented Reso as one of the world’s most forward thinking producers.
‘Tangram Remixed’ opens with KOAN Sound tackling ‘Axion’, pushing the tracks rhythmic possibilities yet further the OSWLA signed duo switch the glitching beat complexities into halftime stepping bliss. Remixer extraordinaire Om Unit perfectly balances ‘Simple Pleasures’ rich pads and dreamlike atmosphere with a slowfast footwork flux while Neurofunk god Billain delivers an exquisite and rare remix, a highly twisted take on the bass mechanics of ‘Half Life’. Doshy closes the 12″ with his unique neck snapping electro and trap infused rework of ‘Coronium’.
The digital package also includes revisions of ‘Check 1,2’ by Philadelphia’s Starkey (Amen breaks and 8 bar grime), 18 year old D&B prodigy Emperor, Munich’s Danny Scrilla (Sub heavy dark, sparse ‘slower than it feels’ 85bpm O.G ’06 bass) and Japanese 2 x DMC world Champion DJ Kentaro (beat-juggling, electro-workout with more edits than you can count) plus remixes of ‘Ishimura’ by NYC’s Drop the Lime remix (Dark shuffling techno) and Atlanta’s Evol Intent (hard hitting D’n’B with a half time feel).
Reso remains a steadfast musical staple on the London underground dance scene. Years after his early appearances onREACT.FM alongside the likes of Rusko, Distance and Heny G he is still staying very much true to his roots, pushing a personal sound and not buying into the hype like so many of his previous counter-parts. A guru of bass manipulations and by no means a creature of habit, he has always operated at the nexus of club focused electronic music varied palette.
Now after the release of his debut long player and a series of genre redefining EPs for Civil Music, and several choice Drum n Bass outings on the pioneering Hospital Records; we have seen Reso construct a brave new narrative in the way that timeless artists like Richard D James, Photek, DJ Shadow and A Guy Called Gerald have done for earlier generations. His deep musicality, incredible production and wildly diverse references place him at the peak of a new breed of electronic producers and have seen him engineering tracks for Burial and Jamie Woon, Travelling to Cuba with Norman Jay and remixing artists as diverse as Wiley, Carl Cox, DJ Kentaro, Om Unit, KOAN Sound, Drop The Lime and Buraka Som Systema amongst others.

Voyeur – Blame It On The Youth EP(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2012 by J.D.

Leeds based duo Voyeur spent early 2012 carving their name on the remix circuit, with reworks for Bombay Bicycle Club and Santigold gaining tastemaker support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, Pete Tong, Rob da Bank, Dummy and XLR8R.

Their first original output, due on 26th November via Kerri Chandler’s new MadTech imprint, is the sultry ‘Blame It On The Youth’, an 8-minute lo-slung epic. Perfect listening for the impending autumnal evenings, it fuses jazz chords and emotive vocal yelps with a genuine sonic weight, showcasing somewhat of a detachment from their previous Balearic offerings.

On the flipside comes an edit from Kerri Chandler himself, who, upon hearing the track, insisted on adding his own interpretation to the package. Retaining much of the original, Kerri displays a new side to his productions and creates a dance-floor ready cut that will surely become a staple in his future sets. The tribal bounce of ‘Get Up’ completes the digital bundle.

Having already supported Disclosure at their London EP launch and appeared at Dimensions and Gottwood festivals over the summer, Voyeur will support Submotion Orchestra this month, before playing their own EP launch party at The Nest in London on 10th November, featuring a special line-up curated by themselves which will be announced over the coming weeks. Following this, the duo will appear on the seminal Boiler Room on 22nd November.
