DESCRIPTION

From the Cradle to the Rave is a near perfect album, and “Take Em Up” is one reason why:  The interplay between Marcus “Shit Robot” Lambkin’s loping synthesizer disco funk and Nancy Whang’s unflappable vocals is, simply, great. Now, that track yields added dividends through its pairing with a collection of remixes from an eclectic group of estimable artists.

Birmingham, England’s Mark E contributes his Black Country Dub, a reworking that adds a robot-precise, thudding beat to minimal arrangements, and then overlays the whole structure with room-filling synths. Marcus Marr takes things slowly, opening with brooding synths and solitary vocals that burst into blissful electronic pop at the chorus.
