About this item
Tirzah releases "Highgrade". A full reworking of the ten tracks on her acclaimed second album "Colourgrade". Containing remixes from the likes of Arca, Actress, Lafawndah, Loraine James and Speakers Corner Quartet. Moving through orchestral jazz, deconstructed r'n'b and minimal electronica, "Highgrade", like all Tirzah’s music is not easily definable by genre, and all the better for it.
Personal favourites include the mutant jazz delivered by Speakers Corner Quartet's remix of "Hive Mind" (check the cello work especially!) and the reversed psychedelic lullaby of "Sleeping", remixed here by Anja Ngozi. Actress' twist on "Sink In" is also worth of a special mention - the moody downtechno wizard imbuing the track with a kind of glowing-through-the-drizzle aesthetic that's perfect for half-falling asleep on long, inner city bus journeys.
Tirzah says on Highgrade: 'The pieces can live another life and come together as a collection of hybrids. So very grateful to all the artists. Thanking them all for the music.'
