Sofie Letitre's recent LP on Division, the gracefully named Take To Heels, was deep and wondrous enough to certainly merit a remix coalition, and should be receiving more praise from bass-heads looking for something a little more soulful. While the original provided some meditative flair, this extended reinterpretation is obviously more open to different styles and influences, such as Know VA's slow, stumbling, and ominously constructed rework of "Elevate", or the silky-smooth pseudo garage of Commodo's remix of "Wonder When". Another special 'un is Ivy Lab's version of "Wonder When", a convoluted bass surprise, and Former's big, bad take on "Stranger".
This jam-packed collection boasts ten new remixes of tracks from Max Cooper's 2016 album Emergence, a largely downtempo set inspired by his live audio-visual performances. As you'd expect, many of the reworks are dancefloor focused, with Vessels, Joe Farr (whose distorted, industrial-tinged techno take on "Panned" is a definite highlight) and techno veteran John Tejada all delivering standout interpretations. These fine remixes are accompanied by similarly impressive rubs that don't strive as hard for club plays, with Hidden Orchestra's symphonic version of "Symmetry" and Tom Hodge's intricate, melodious rework of "Cyclic" standing out.
