How best to ensure that a good quality remix album is put together for a well-respected artist? Easy, ask the artist in person to select the personnel himself so that those that chosen can be trusted to give a quality twist on the original material. Yellow6's Jon Attwood does just this. Perhaps the most well-known of the lucky few are Rothko whose intelligent makeover of 'Silhouette' resonates with a bass-heavy sound that is very much their own. Innerise skilfully rework the same track into sinister, darker avenues. Bauri and Amp perhaps have the most difficult task; attempting to offer something new to two of Attwood's masterpieces, 'Leitmotiv' and 'Snowmelt' and unsurprisingly they cannot really improve on perfection. Also worth a mention are Phobos 3's 'Onecertain' in which they add pounding rhythms whilst Maps&Diagrams reach for night-time in the city atmospherics on their version of 'Halflife Cpl-33'. Better still is the floating dreaminess of 'Landing' on 'Marble#1'. All in all it's what a remix album should be; the artists respectful of the work of Attwood but not being afraid to experiment to achieve a different outlook on the tracks chosen.
