Review: Ophiuchus was French DJ/producer Anetha's debut release and now Work Them owner Spencer Parker helms a remix package of tracks from the 2015 EP. He has done three verisons of "Drive With a Dead Girl"; the 'Work' remix resounds to nocturnal hooks that swoop in over heavy techno kicks and percussion with a hawk's deadly precision; the 'Beats' take sees Parker strip away this element to focus on the pounding, relentless rhythm track, while the 'Work Tool' focuses largely on those dramatic, swirling hooks. Antigone's take on "Black Widow" is every bit as intricate and complex as one would expect of the French producer, while there is a new track from Anetha herself, the soaring but gritty techno of "Traces To Nowhere".
Review: Phasing Faces was a two-part series that featured original material from Anetha, Elad Magdasi, Mathame and Maukook, alongside Anagram founders Sinfol and Octual. The latest development in this series is this stellar remix release. Efdemin turns Sinfol's "Trembling" into a pulsating, atmospheric slice of deep techno, while on his version of Anetha's "Acid Train" Ryan James Ford drops tough, dense kicks and frazzled organ riffs that are tailor made for peak time usage. The versatile producer Nick Lapien is tasked with remixing Elad Magdasi's "Two Floors" and turns it into a rolling deep house track. In an uncharacteristic move, Terrence Dixon also delivers a house remix, with his Population One take on Octual's "Dark Sky" focusing on a tracky rhythm, vocal snippets and subtle synth builds.
