Following on from the Cairn EP earlier this year, Brecon - the new collaborative project from Joe Farr and Will Brown - present the Cairn Remixes, due 22 November on MESH. For this package, Om Unit, Nicolas Bougaieff , Max Cooper and Tenebre present four diverse interpretations of tracks from the EP.
Drawing on years of experience as established producers in the UK scene, Brecon fuse their heavier dance music heritage with a penchant for introspective melodies. Angular percussion and reflective harmonies drive a range of tempos into vast acoustics, wandering through repurposed references to UK garage, early dubstep, house and techno.
For his remix of 'Scarp', Om Unit forges a dubbed out half-time stepper with rich, immersive textures and rolling percussion, followed by Max Cooper's shuffling, emotive take on 'Scattered'. Tenebre's take on 'Subside' morphs the pointillist form of the original into a gritty, industrial swirl. Closing off the EP, Nicolas Bougaieff morphs 'Half Light' into a marching dancefloor cut for the peak hours.
