WEATHERALL REMIX PART 1: FINITRIBE
As I said on Friday, for the next two weeks I’m going to have my top 10 Weatherall remixes. In keeping with this blog’s unwritten rule, I’m not including anything less than 5 years old, which sadly rules out his remixes of Primal Scream’s Uptown and of David Holmes’ I Heard Wonders.
First up, his remix for Finitribe of their 101 track, from a 1991 promo on One Little Indian. This is close on nine minutes of Weatherall remix genius, with the gently picked piano (can a piano be picked?) drifting along with the female sample “It’s the point of greatest intensity”. Beats come in but they are sleepy, wasted beats with more than a reference to dub. This captures the essential sound of the post-club come-down.
