Elliot Adamson’s back
This post marks the return of Elliot Adamson. Been a bit of a year for Elliot. He came to the big city to study, annoyed some neighbours, did a lot of clubbing, jacked the studies, returned home to focus on the music. You’d have thought after all that it would be some heavy techno that he’d have come back with. But no. It’s a remix of Man Power’s Inside (me neither).
The original Man Power track is piano driven electronics, a bit The XX or Nil Frahm. The remix is surprisingly minimal. A bit Villalobos. Kinda clicky. The piano that leads the original doesn’t rally get a look in. This is percussive minimalism.
