Freeform Freeform Condensed (Finest Filets 1995-2002)
- Words: Dave Segal
- Label: Nonplace
An odd concept: Nonplace Records owner and renowned producer Burnt Friedman edits and "re-edits" select tracks from British IDM maestro Simon Pyke's vast back catalog. Seems like someone of Pyke's lofty stature wouldn't want anyone-no matter how accomplished-to mess with what are already unique specimens of complex, otherworldly aural architecture. That said, Friedman has definitely punched up and brightened Freeform's somewhat arid, intellectual constructions, so the decision to release Condensed on vinyl makes sense in light of this upgrade. As a career-spanning intro to Freeform's often exotic, experimental electronica, Condensed works wonders.
