Multiplex – With Hands And Feet (Multidisc)

Multiplex - With Hands And Feet

Multiplex - With Hands And Feet

The EP features an original track from Multiplex plus 9 remixes from a range of artists including Digitonal, Safety Scissors, Shitmat and Proem.

‘With Hands And Feet’ sees Multiplex employ new organic sounds alongside their trademark lush synths. Strong melodies with oriental overtones help balance abstract elements.

All compositions in their own right, most of the remixes don’t borrow heavily from the original. Digitonal’s is melodic as you would expect, a dramatic opening draws attention to the harmonious layered strings. Proem offers us some dreamy, laid back glitch – it’s nice enough but Proem is capable of better. Decanids hit the spot though with waves of ambience lapping against a funky glitchy rhythm.

Safety Scissors go for something quirky, with a big bass sound and unusual melodical structures using a range of synths. Shitmat gives us two tracks of abstract hardcore; heavily chopped and cleverly manipulated.

Inspite of some good attempts, none of the remixes better the original – let’s hope there’s more excellent solo stuff on the way from Multiplex.
