Haunted Weather

World reknowned musicologist David Toop comes back offering a much stranger world than he let us discover with his seemingly tamer 'Ocean of Sound'. This compilation could have been called "Valley of the Lost Chip". 32 electronic tracks expose the rich extremes found in music being made in our age of the laptop.

When the hot air balloon (montgolfière) was fully expanded, it was sent out to follow the gulf stream. Floating perilously over an emense field of troubled waters it was sent out as a representation of peace. Some dolphins sensed this and rose to the surface in syncopated arcs; a greeting that empahasized that nirvana might be possible. They rose and fell in the water like radio waves. Ondulating. The sound could only be heard by the men in the balloon when they weren't using a gas flame to keep it in the air. Because they men prefered to hear the dolphins they came closer and closer to the sea, the sounds grew louder. They completly forgot that they were not dolphins. When the woven basket hit the water... they could hear voices...

La Plinthe

Creeping in from under the floorboards, a house reveals the essence of many inhabitants, moments, hidden spaces and the silence of Duchamp’s dust. The prolific is polished but trimmed back. The music questions. Find keyhole ear. Fill in with spackle. Focus, then repeat the action.

Simply an amazing example of what a remix album should be. Fully international. Creme de la creme. Double LP. Wash at 90°. Use bleach if necessary. Do not fold.
