Kid606’s pursuit of happiness comes to a close with this collection of stellar remixes from his last LP.
Areal records techno guru Basteroid provides a super dynamic non-dancefloor remix of “Blood Stevia Sex magik”.
Miffy goes into total late night underground dubby techno club vibes for both of his remixes, channeling the relentless spirit of Berghain, Club Mate and GHB (Minus the Date rape of course.)
Rw Smith sings and dances his way through a Genre bending symphonic trap version of “Cloud Sculpting” Reminiscent of Baths, Rick Ross and John Adams.
One of our favorite Japanese electronic music composers, MimiCof AKA Midori Hirano, retains the original glitchy uplifting spirit of “Tarsier Treehouse” while adding tasty skittering beats and drippy synthesizers.
Magic Panda does his highly original electro-shoegazey thing as only he can. Is his “Cloud Sculpting” remix better then the original? For the sake ego of Kid606’s ego we will not say, but it’s definitely a close call!
AM Version lives in San Francisco and releases house music on Roam Recordings. His über laid back saxophone heavy remix of “Smooth Sailing” is the perfect closer for the EP. It keeps the yacht rock feel of the original while adding some AFX styled analog synthesis and sweet wailing vocals from Alona.
