In advance of Lucy's second album arriving, the Berlin-based producer opens up tracks from Churches Schools and Guns for reinterpretation with a roll call of producers on board representative of the standing Stroboscopic Artefacts now has within the techno community. Donato Dozzy, Shapednoise, Eomac, and Milton Bradley all contribute and do a fine job in teasing interested parties with how the original material from Lucy sounds. Shapednoise calls shotgun, twisting the Joseph Heller inspired "Catch Twenty Two" into a hellish soundscape of feedback and ghoulish texture with a sole clacking drum beat to cling onto, which is complemented nicely by a suitably hypnotic take on "The Illusion Of Choice" from Donato Dozzy - a man clearly in something of a remix purple patch. Milton Bradley offers a moment of serenity with his version of "Laws & Habits" before proceedings head towards the post-apocalyptic on Eomac's excellent rework of "The Self As Another". Remix EPs might not be the most rewarding of concepts but this release belongs amongst the exceptions.
