Nettle Firecamp Stories Remixes
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: The Agriculture
Brooklyn's The Agriculture reaps a serious harvest with this remix album from Nettle, a duo comprised of DD and DJ/rupture. Rupture leaves behind his schizo plundering, but the impeccable taste remains intact: these Firecamp Stories remixes are intense and highly inventive reworkings that run the spectrum of granularity from Brooklyn pavement grit to North African dune shifts to acrid Spanish wind. "More Fire"'s belly-swivels of techno dub are fleshed out immediately afterwards by Joseph Nothing's searing and symphonic desert-epic romance. An extremely well-executed adventure that sidesteps well-trod Muslimgauze terrain with immaculate shifts in texture.
