Various Artists Lackluster: Remixselection One
- Words: Brion Paul
- Label: Psychonavigation
Not only does this Finnish IDM wunderkind make icy angelic music himself, but he can posses other people's tracks with laptop-powered clackety percussion and optimistic soaring synth visions as well. And it doesn't really take a full 12 remixes to make this compilation's ethos as clear as a mountain lake. Ninety seconds into his EEDL remix, and your parietal lobe is getting caressed like Pegasus' rainbow-colored mane being stroked by a nine-year old girl. Then he wreaks perfect havoc on an aggressively dissected Lord Fader, and he just keeps on going from there. Overwhelmingly good.
