Mr Johnson and fellow New Zealander Simon Flower turn in a pair of outstanding mixes - Magik's NZ Tribal Dub is equal parts classic tribal and Rekids-style dub work-out with menacing over-blown horns wailing over a chunky filtered groove. Steady and grinding as a glacier, and equally irresistible.
On the flip Flower hits us with a cool, fat-as-fuck techno excursion that's up there with the best of his releases on Kompakt and Railyard, mixing up micro-sampled glitch beats with dubbed out chords for a perfect balance of darkly dreamy and dramatically druggy. One for the heads. Lastly the original mix of Straight Face walks the same genre-defying line as it's elder brother, somewhere beyond the borders of techno and electro but equally at home in a set of either. Big room stuff with big hooks for big moments.
