Mark Ernestus Remixes
The cloud-bursting chords and spaghetti western-esque tropes of ‘Congo Get Slap’ are deftly diffused in the echo chamber, giving the bass an elasticated recoil and sublimating the chords to scudding, skywards dabs with weightless effect for the dancers.
on the Flipside, Ernestus takes that aspect one step further, distilling the kinetic dub futurism into a maze of diaphanous dub chords and rolling, sunken subs that inarguably measures up among his strongest post-Basic Channel works. Like Shackleton’s dub of The Stomper by Cutty Ranks for DDS, the results here triangulate deep-rooted connections between Jamaica, Lancashire and Berlin, speaking to a mutual respect and reverence of style and pattern which has heavily resonated from sub-tropical Kingston into much colder, European climes over successive generations.
