Various Artists - Phasing Faces: (Efdemin, Lapien, Ryan James Ford and Population One Remixes)
Release Date: 15th December 2017
Anagram Label follow up their 'Phasing Faces' releases with remixes from Efdemin, Lapien, Ryan James Ford and Terrence Dixon under his Population One moniker this December. Released earlier this year, 'Phasing Faces' was a two-part series featuring Anetha, Elad Magdasi, Mathame and Maukook, not to mention label founders Sinfol and Octual. Anagram have now tapped up four reputable names for a heavyweight remix package; Dial regular Efdemin, fast rising MDR and Answer Code Request act Ryan James Ford, Dutch producer Lapien aka one half of Delsin's Artefakt, as well as renowned Detroit artist Terrence Dixon appearing as Population One. Ostgut Ton's Efdemin opens the package with his immersive remix of Sinfol 'Trembling', incorporating pulsating drones, echoing effects and ethereal synths. Anetha's 'Acid Train' then gets reimagined by SHUT founder Ryan James Ford - the Canadian combines thudding kicks with mesmerising atmospherics as metallic percussion skips throughout. Adding further depth to the release, Rekids and Mistress Recordings artist Lapien remixes Elad Magdasi 'Two Floors' to generate a smooth aesthetic complete with serene nuances and soulful vocal coos before Rush Hour and Metroplex's Population One ties everything together with a deep house reinterpretation of Octual 'Dark Sky'.
