Various Artists The ObliqSound Remixes
- Words: Heath K. Hignight
- Label: ObliqSound
ObliqSound's got this patently predictable thing going on-collecting erstwhile world music or adult contemporary/jazz artists together on a single label under the premise of crafting a no "genres" vibe-and it's mildly interesting. Only mildly more interesting is this soup-sandwich remix project based on The ObliqSound Sampler, where Chris Brann of Ananda Project and Wamdue Kids fame, Grand Central funk popsters Riton, and less-notable names put their tweak on the original material (Aw Heath, don't you think at least Wai Wan's afrofuturist mix of Flugelschlag passes muster?-Ed). Remixes is wildly dry in its attempt to evoke a gestalt musical sensation, where d & b-lite and queasy house are the best things to be had.
