Following the acclaim of Time Traveler’s I’m Made of Stars LP, Michele Pinna presents The Remixes Report I, featuring remixes of tracks from the album by four key names in European and US techno. These remixes take Pinna’s dystopian sci-fi vision and place it firmly in the club, with each artist providing their own unique take on a different track from the album.
Brian Sanhaji opens the EP in style, taking Time Traveler’s Stardust and extrapolating its industrial atmosphere into a screaming and tense techno roller. Bass Mooy, label boss at Mord Records, supplies his take on Currupttion, bringing up the pace and turning the spacious original into something altogether more dense and percussive. The third helping comes from touring veteran Black Asteroid, who here draws on his industrial background and fuses it with the futurism of the source material, resulting in a twisting, otherworldly adventure. Closing up the EP is Chicago’s DJ Hyperactive, who reliably takes apart Time Traveler’s Timestretcher 17121985, before putting it back together upside down and ending up with a tight, club-ready and hypnotic track that lives up to the artist’s name.
The Remix Report I sits perfectly alongside the album, and is essential for any fans who want to hear the themes of the LP taken in different directions, or simply for DJs and techno enthusiasts looking for forward thinking dance music with a sci-fi edge.
