Fall Into Noise – The Remixes
TBR: 5th November
Established in the scene with his PRAH debut Fall Into Noise, Raven Bush garnered a long line of excitement about his break-through sound. Eager to play and explore, several large fishes in the nearby pools have made it their mission to become associated with the epic climb of Raven Bush. The album implores us to accept the chaos that surrounds us although it may be frightening and disturbing to contemplate. Control is never fully in our reach so let's just take responsibility for ourselves and give each other the gift of this extraordinary offering of remixes.
Hannah Holland brings her version of Your Space to open the EP. Deep and sensual tones reverberate across throbbing bass as windy synths briskly breeze from stereo directions. Harmonious chimes rise from distinctive shadows as coiling deep tones foam with surging crawls. Cymbals begin to shine, effects swerve their directional flow as repeating splashes spiral around the soft under-bedding. Springy inflections grow from the spires of rhythm and manufacture the driving pulse carried by a persistent bass drum.
Unison beats and harmonising melodies pinch the plastic into well-crafted grooves. Rhythm progresses as a bass tone threads through the consistent drums. New levels of bass-drum kick in as repeating melodies knock on the door of the dance-floor. A new dimension of composition breaks like a wave as dancing keyboards conjure magical atmospheres. The Alex Banks remix of A Choice is full of heavy bass and quick-step rhythms that reach into dreamy soundscapes.
Space-age sonic experiments shine in spikes and aerials that beam with metallic lustre. A sudden flux of bass matches a smooth and invigorating drum as talkative synthesisers create a mousy chime through the depths of soul. Never is remixed by Sam Interface, leading with heavy bass, ethereal and spectral melodies create tranquil adaptations that flutter against solid walls. Flavoursome chords and clever use of sample stretching lend an artistic quality to an already banging number.
Dainty whistles evolve into spectral orchestrations with string and flute adapting a journey-like background of moving emotions. Cinematic motifs call through churning scenery as pressure-pads warp and generate interesting spires that lean with pressing luminance. The Factory Of Light then springs into power mode as tense and weighty bass throbs into a heady kick-drum. Spiralling spaces climb and creep in corridors adjacent to the mechanics within forming chaos. This Anna Lann version takes us deeply into a sinister and exciting underworld.
A roll of catchy drums resonates into a crisp and spiritual atmosphere when Start Of Something New gets remixed by Moire. Drone sounds hang in sweet shelving as breathy interludes offer embers a burst of extra presence. Tranquil voices call through synthesised signatures as a muffled yet touched bass rhythm pounces on the moving surface. Dreamy turns of perspective elevate sudden formations that glisten before disappearing into the misty surrounding once more.
The final number chugs in on summery beats with chiming sonic uplift. Vocals echo in a dub style projection as new waveform enter on galloping thoroughbred sonics. Shuffle-step drumming beams in on winged effigies of complex tonality and flow. Mixing bass and curdling synthesisers vortex and coil in rivers of loosely harmonising free flow. This remix of A Choice by 7st gets cosy with soundwaves that blanket and bubble-wrap in colourful meters.
