Len Faki takes on a couple of classics for 007 of his ongoing special edits series LFRMX, striking a perfect balance between the old and new.
First up is a tweaked version of Steve Stolls 1998 LP-excerpt Reciproheat, elegantly edged while carrying the proper weight to move.
DJ Shufflemasters booming Housedust release from the same year however has a wacky tack to its groove, its mind-bending qualities yet amplified by Faki boiling down the tempo to more current confines.
The flipside goes all deep, starring a rework of Valentino Moras recent space odyssey. Building upon the originals lively tribal percussion, the prevailent mystical mood is spliced up, readying the track special moments in an otherwise up-tempo-environment. A gently pulsing edit of UBX127s Barabrus eventually puts a meditative and soothing finishing touch to the EP.
As with all releases of LF RMX, the proceeds of this record will be forwarded to the Berlin organization Straßenkinder e.V. to be used in actions against child poverty.
