The latest curator of the esteemed series of groovy re-edits is none other than rising star, Ree Keen. There's four reworks featured here, all of which perfectly capture the noted diversity of his influences. Opener "Blue Devils" is all bluesy looped nonchalance, "Smooth Changes" is a party ragtime jaunt through Annie-style musical swing. "Horny Me Swing" is a mash-up of Mousse T and big band jive that's as improbable as it sounds and "Paper Bossa Loser" fuses vintage Beck with chiming, sunkissed bossa nova. It shouldn't work, but it does!
Being a bit of a musical clever clogs, ROJ leader, David Hanke, based the title of their recent album Paradise Lost on John Milton's famous poem of the same name. Now we get a follow-up collection of remixes that utilises the title of Milton's own sequel: Paradise Regain'd. Highlights include Skeewiff's clavinet-heavy hip-house rework of "Fire", Ride Of The Renegades' raspy, blues-rock version of "Hellesens" and its back to the days of Gypsy Woman on Titenots' retro house mix of "Neverday".
