Strain of Origin VI is the latest instalment in our annual remix compilation series. Acting as curators, we approach artists we enjoy and pair them together in combinations we think will yield interesting results.
This latest instalment is a concise effort, clocking in at 9 tracks, and despite its diversity is a surprisingly cohesive listen. A rare outcome for compilations such as this.
Starting out with some lighter, more melodic electronica courtesy of Pendant, Arthur Wimble etc. the compilation then veers into darker territory with the throbbing, synth-driven post punk of Rebel Yell's take on Lovely Head. Elsewhere Bilby reworks Aphir's 'Deeper In' into a ghostly trap, slow jam, while Tangents apply their mix of skittering electronics and delicate instrumentation to Reuben Ingall's stark piano ballad, 'Eyelids'.
Each remix makes sense as part of the overall collection while showcasing the varied styles and talents of the individual artists.
A huge thank you to all the artists involved, without whom these amazing releases would not be possible.
