Lowfold Reworks - Inc. Pye Corner Audio / Don't DJ / President Bongo Reworks

Reworks of tracks from across the Yorkshire-based electronic producer’s trilogy of long-form EPs on the Lowfold Works label. This release brings together a celebrated list of progressive contemporaries at the top of their game.

Pye Corner Audio, Don't DJ & President Bongo have all made ripples and waves across their various sound pools through some inspired and creative content over the last few years. Unleashing the same drive and desire for audio magc they turn their attention to three of Craven Fault's tracks for the subject of this release.

"Intakes" is given a synthetic and opiated wash as Pye Corner Audio injects a subtle 4/4 thrust but otherwise smothers the stems in a comforting, if narcotic, blanket of sound.

Don't DJ takes on "Foddergang", creating a mesmerizing, concentric EBM pulse which owes as much to Ashra Temple and Manuel Gottsching as it does to Tolouse Low Trax and Huerco S.

Finally, President Bongo brings out the blossoming bright and celestial nuances of "Eller Ghyll", giving them a crystalline, if hypnotic focus. The clarity of the panned drum hits combining with the dreaminess of those softly circling arpeggios is a true feast for the ears. Fluttering, phasing elements gently drift across the stereo field as a motorick meter steadily urges things forward. Dreamboat!

Mega release, all three remixes are golden. Highly recommended!



Craven Faults adds to his burgeoning discography with another carefully developed collection of modular murmurings. The technologically advanced producer conjures up kosmiche futurescapes thru a vast array of US & European modules and based around the Moog / Oakley Sound System design (there's a really interesting article below on his set-up for the techno geeks!.. - ed) . If this arresting new UK synth shaman has yet to register on your radar, then this is brilliant entry point!

Hypnotic & undulating, there's an organic flow and natural evolution to the patterns and sequences, with the feeling that once CF has programmed his machines, he stands back and lets them breath and interact with each other without constant supervision.

That said, the level of control, precision and detail is outstanding. Utilizing common triplets and syncopation, the typically Krautian gallop and canter is achieved, with very little interference from drum machines. The modules has a pulse all of their own, Craven Faults is simply harnessing it somewhat within a songlike framework; though you could argue that for the machines, time is irrelevent - their patterns non-linear and infinite.
