Palms Trax "Equation (Snow Bone's Linear Equation)"
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Hailing from London, the Lobster Theremin imprint launched back in October with its first release from rising Berlin talent Palms Trax. Now, before Lobster Theremin's sophomore release drops later this month in the form of a four-track effort from Snow Bone, the London newcomer has turned in a remix of Palms Trax. Where the original "Equation" takes cues from producers such as Legowelt and others enamored with the spacier heritage of Detroit techno, Snow Bone's version of the tune is decidedly more dark and brooding from the onset, carefully weaving cloudy textures and digitally singed percussion into an immersively sparse six-plus-minute rework. Those interested in hearing what Snow Bone's original material sounds like can head to Lobster Theremin's Bandcamp, where the Londoner's forthcoming Remote Viewer EP can be heard in full before it drops on November 25.
