With its HQ in rural Germany - Rockets & Ponies is a coterie for the outsiders - those etoo strange for the normal business with an ethos that fosters freedom of expression, experimentation and an avant-garde approach. So who better to present a remix package of works by Jazz luminary Wolfgang Haffner that includes Ricardo Villalobos & Max Loderbauer, Nightmares on Wax, Acid Mondays and label padrone Timo Maas. Prolific doesnt quite cover Haffners creative output. With a career that spans over 30 years beginning in the German and French Jazz Ensemble and moving on to collaborative works with the likes of Chaka Khan, Bill Evans and Roy Ayres Haffner has appeared on over 350 recordings. The selected material within this package is taken from his latest album eHeart Of The Matter released through The ACT Company in 2013 - eMelodia, eLuna and eBing are twisted, stretched and reformed by the eminently prestigious roster of remixers. First in is Ricardo Villalobos - an exalted genius and champion of freedom of expression with previous releases on Perlon, Playhouse, Cadenza and Cocoon who pairs up with regular studio partner Max Loderbauer for two wonderfully elongated, no-holds-barred dissections of eBing and eMelodia. Loderbauer himself, as a master of audio design, injects experience assimilated from sharing his studio with Tobias Freund and together the pair opt for their regular method of developing tracks on modular machines using no overdubbing or multitrack mixing. Next up, previous collaborator with Haffner himself, Nightmares on Wax steps in with a typically balmy, Rhodes-heavy revision of eLuna. The longest ever serving artist on Warp Records opts for signature dosages of Dub, Soul and Jazz that hes perfected and refined over his long and illustrious career. And who better to offer an alternative take on eLuna than Rockets & Ponies co-founder Timo Maas. Following up his eLifer LP and his eTantra and eArticulation EPs, Maas steps in with his brash and physical reworking of eLuna that he creatively re-images into a billowing beast. In doing so he further substantiates his own left-field productions and indeed, Rockets & Ponies is an entirely unique and creative experiment capable of producing incredible results." Also included are coequal space cadets Acid Mondays (Negghead and Lex Wolf) who beam a unfurled and twisted transmission into the package over a 10 minute work-out of eBing. Crashes and Space Echo ring out as the pair add to a catalogue of releases on Circus, Illusion and 20:20 Vision.
