Review: Musical output from Jonathan Burnip has been somewhat sporadic in the five years he has been in operation, but when he does drop a record it always counts for something. On 'House of Dolls', his masterful command of a standout hosue groove comes to the fore, as a perfectly bumping beat offsets a cavernous organ stab. All the while digital squalls flit around the track, but really everything revolves around the funk of the track. TAPES take a cheeky 8 bit dub approach to their remix, which is charming if not as striking as the fantastic original. Another winner for the on point Unknown To The Unknown imprint.

Review: Capracara's "House Of Dolls" was one of Unknown To The Unknown's finest tracks last year, and here it gets a reworking from library music and soundtrack specialist Jonny Trunk. The hookup, we can only assume, came through Burnip's appreciation of slasher movie soundtracks, and the result is as out there as you could imagine - stripping the radiophonic bleeps from the original, Trunk leaves only an echo of the original's melody and adds some acoustic samples to glue the remix together. Propelled by nothing other than a simple kick drum, it's what you might imagine a music concrete version of house music to sound like.

Review: Bringing more of the rough and tumble jack-action to Unknown To The Unknown, Capracara is as up for the party as ever on "Ronin", although arguably reining in his more wayward tendencies for a more direct garage house jam. Still, when the drums hit as hard as they do here, a little linear structure doesn't dampen the spirits. Recent Juno Plus podcasters Kodiak step up for a remix, and they proceed to delineate everything in sight with a chunky broken beat and dense layers of head-spinning melody, vocal samples and effects. It's perhaps less party ready than the original, but addictive all the same. Killer!
