Saturday dubbing wiith: Becker & Mukai – Spice War (Zongamin Remix) #House #Dub #Electronic

Electronic dub is a tricky thing. Rarely works with a tendency to fall between stools. Finding that balance this morning is Zongamin with his remix of Becker & Mukai’s Spice War.

Becker & Mukai are Parisian cinema composer Jean-Gabriel Becker and Japanese composer and multi-instrumentalist Susumu Mukai. Their album Time Very Near has been remixed by a bunch of folks including Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and themselves. As in this case, Zongamin being alter ego for Mukai. It’s a fabulous track. It has a raw electronic dub leaning with more than a little 80s legacy behind it. To that is added a Colonel Hathi sort of march and a bunch of electronic trickery. It’s all rather fabulous. Experimentation as pleasure, rather than clever clever.
