The second EP of Samuel Rohrer‘s Range of Regularity album presents two more striking reinterprations. These new remixes provide an intriguing parallax view of the original tracks, using the percussive eclecticism of the parent LP as a starting point from which to journey into sonically vibrant, feature-rich territories.
Burnt Friedman‘s own dramatic interpretation of Microcosmoism pairs up his consciousness of deep bass and analog inventiveness with Rohrer‘s continually transforming sound objects, making for a flowing and wordless narrative that simply dares listeners to stop paying attention.
This is complemented nicely by Villalobos‘ remix of Microcosmoism. It carries the energy level of the 1st EP over to a new disk, while heavily experimenting with feelings of emotional ambiguity.
At some points aggressive and at other points merely curious, this mischievous collage of attitudes feels as inspired by the questing jazz of Sun Ra as it is by continental techno.
