Anodyne: The Remixes: I Heart AU Review
The Corrosion LP was the first official Anodyne release since his appearance on Skam’s Mask 500 compilation. This remix EP is a perfect complement to it, featuring a host of the producer’s heroes, who each take the originals’ components for a ramble through fun and furious territory. The result is a fantastic collection displaying some of the range of vocabulary possible within the field of upbeat electronic music. Black Dog use minor key noise blasts, Autechre bring ‘The Funky Drummer’ back to life, Lackluster chops out some novel stutter rhythms, Mick Chillage gets the jolly rave piano out, Mr Spring delivers hard electro, Anodyne goes full-on acid and Ed Devane delivers a high-tempo mash of fuzz beats. A tasty platter, best shared with friends. Barry Cullen
