Pieces In Patterns
For us - the label of rough trade shops releases a stunning 12'' from L.A.'s Pollyn and not only that - a killer moodymann mix too. Every turn on this 5 track 12'' shows something different from the band. album track 'how small we are' shows their signature atmospheric sound, pushed further with african percussion, multiple choirs and heavier synths. then there's 'mysterons' - their take on the opening track from portishead's 'dummy' album. it's almost unrecognizable, reconstructing it into a synth-ed out new wave party jam. there's two heavyweight mixes as well from shangaan electro and the mighty Moodymann. Nozinja and nurse Matlala of South Africa's shangann electro scene took pollyn's catchy, all-about-the-bassline track 'how small we are' and made it even more thrilling by adding new vocals and doubling its length. Finally the cherry on the cake is the Moodymann remix of Sometimes You Just Know'. Some say this is one of his finest mixes in years and we have to agree, keeping the song intact he adds some of his drum know-how and detroit funk to turn the original into a total dancefloor destroyer.
