Special Request

Through The Looking Glass - Inc. Nina Kraviz / Anastasia Kristensen Remixes

About this item

Special Request joins forces with Nina Kraviz and Anastasia Kristensen, shattering the doors of perception over a four-track EP. ‘"Through The Looking Glass" on cult label Houndstooth.

On the A side, Nina Kraviz provides two interpretations of "Curtain Twitcher". ‘Alice Was Here Remix’ takes the intensity of the original and boils it into a 4/4 spin of frenzied basslines and distorted acoustics, punctuated by her languid reading of the Mad Hatter. For the ‘Samba Version’, syncopated polyrhythms take charge of a fragmented melody.

Opening the AA side, "Looking Glass" lures you down the rabbit hole with mysterious bleeps, only to reveal a whirlwind of stormy breaks and junglist percussion. Closing off the trip, Anastasia Kristensen’s remix of "Tiresias" marches its way through a field of swollen bass and glitchy percussion. Mega stuff here folks...

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: This is very, very good. Specialist tackle for blackened aircraft hangers and tekno AF.
