B Remember (Hieroglyphic Being Remix)
Remix – Hieroglyphic Being

Chicago-based experimental techno spirit guide Jamal Moss (aka Hieroglyphic Being) joins a team of remixers who have been given the opportunity to hack away at some of All Saints Records' most prized vignettes.

Moss takes on Hans Joachim Roedelius, who is best known for being a founder member of pioneering German kosmische acts Kluster/Cluster and Harmonia. The track in question - 'Remember' - is from a 1990s collaboration with saxophonist Nicola Alesini and guitarist Fabio Capanni and finds Roedelius on a particularly jazzy tip. The group was monikered Aquarello, and released a trio of albums, the final of which (1998's Aquarello) was released by All Saints. This makes it a prime target for Moss, who dissolves the track into a churning slice of psychedelic, jazzy house, with all the grit and grime you'd expect from a dude who's next record is entitled Eat My Fuck. Moss's remix will be released on a two-track EP with another rework from dubby types Peaking Lights,

Unexpected remix awesomeness for electronic/ambient pioneer Roedelius! For those unfamiliar, Hans Joachim Roedelius was a founding member of seminal krautrock/kosmiche groups Cluster and Harmonia. Their sound helped pave the way for the ambient side of rock and electronic music and lead to many beautiful ambient solo recordings from Roedelius himself (check the Selbstportrait series).

This 12" finds two modern pioneers of the underground - Chicago's Hieroglyphic Being (aka Mathematics label boss Jamal Moss) and LA's Peaking Lights - reworking Roedelius pieces in their own signature styles. Firstly, the unpredictable Hieroglyphic Being goes for a leftfield breaks remix of "Remember," giving the track an epic, rolling breakbeat vibe that hangs with the heaviest, moodiest endeavors from DJ Shadow. Worth it for this one alone, but on the flip Peaking Lights dubbify "Puente" for maximum chill in the smoking room. Well recommended.
