Throne Of Blood
The sometime DFA-affiliated Pixelife, have a very subtle, jacking and psychedelic sound. "Waves Of Titan" sounds a bit like fellow Brooklynites Invisible Conga People mixed with some lost Chicago classic. The B-side, "DC To Daylight" starts with 707 clatter, eventually introducing some cosmic pads for an amazing krauthouse conconction which works a lengthy, swinging jam into its epic 10-minute run. Druzzi of The Rapture takes the idea further, introducing some beautiful Kosmische piano waterfalls for his version of the track. On the A, Pittsburgh Track Authority? strips things down a bit, demonstrating their hardware house prowess.
Inspired pairing of the French producer Life Recorder and Simoncino . Great source material. The title track is a deep, dubby Chicago track that works in just a bit of skewed Detroit sci-fi futurism. For fans of Nicuri, Joey Anderson, etc. The Italian producer's remixes are a real treat. The "Spirit Mix" is all new age drift. The "pressure mix" sounds like a refracted Model 500 endurojam, and the morning mix explores the uplifting nature of the source material, sounding like Ron and Chez or Joe Smooth hands in the air house. Excellent and diverse DJ record, highly recommended.
