The Asphodells Remixed – Promo Mix

asphodellsremixed

It’s been a long time since we had any Weatherall on the bog. I’ve not particularly enjoyed his krautrock or rockabilly influenced stuff. I still pine for the more danceable 90s stuff. It was therefore with a sense of foreboding that I listened to The Asphodells Remixed album. But it’s great.

I’ve no idea whether I like it because of what the remixers have done or whether it’s simply that Weatherall’s dance clock has once more turned to more house-orientated stuff. Check out this 13 min taster for the album. The remixers produce a cracking mix of dub, disco and house-influenced productions, always with a leftfield twist. Highlights from the album include Phil Kieran’s remix of Late Flowering Lust, which exploits an evil bass line and dub techno styling. Justin Robertson remixes Beglammered with a Moroder bass and upbeat chiming tones. and Daniele Baldelli and DJ Rocca remix Another Lonely City into a Balearic indie disco trip. Fabulous album.

And have a full track to listen, The Asphodells – We Are The Axis (Daniel Avery remix)

  1. Darn it- got this lined up for tomorrow. It’s a cracking album.

  2. Like you Ctel, I hanker for the old times when a Weatherall mix or Sabres track meant danceable, sample laden, epic adventures. But his remixes and the parent album that these remixes comes from are really good.
