This is by far and away the best thing James Holden's released for some time. Sounding not unlike a fusion of Steve Summers' Confused House project, Kelpe and Caribou (fitting, since he dons his Daphni guide to remix), "Renata" builds on a wave of fuzzy, crystalline synthesizer appreggios - underpinned by a lone drum machine - before unleashing some dizzying jazz drums. The Daphni remix takes the track in a different direction, creating a sparse, clicky, atmospheric beast that makes great use of Holden's loose live drums and some choice vocal samples. Steve Moore, on the other hand, opts to focus on the more beautiful elements of the original, turning it into a dreamy slice of synthwave bliss.
