Up first is legendary Detroit producer and Matrix Records impresario: Sean Deason, who turns in a signature stripped down 909 and chord workout that finds and highlights the funk amid the noise of Fuel Core Recovery. Fuel Core Recovery (Sean Deason Remix) is a master class in stepping', pumpin', and bumpin'. The skittering mechanical rhythms of the original slip along the bed of slowly modulating saw chords held firmly to an insistent beat optimized to get your ass moving.
Extrasolar (Uun Remix) follows from a whole other approach. Rising Midwest Techno talent Uun (aka Ryan Malony) takes the original down to its tweakiest elements and builds a bleeping, buzzing structure that extrapolates the steppy nature of the track and carves a groove along the thin border separating Techno and Electro (proper Electro, you know what we mean).
Countered reconstructs Munitions Factory Salvage around a distorted acid line. The result is a simmering, slow burn acid track with shifting rhythms that recalls elements of mid-90s acid with updated atmospheric touches.
Extrasolar Remixes closes with Isolated Jack (Countereds Fusion Mix) originally from JGarretts Waterworks EP. This new version drops the vocal samples and plays with the sonic space where Isolated Jack and Countereds Kikkit intersect. infectious, rough and ready, Isolated Jack (Countereds Fusion Mix) is an invitation to crawl into the bass bin and get lost in pure speaker jacking harmonics.
