Andrew Weatherall is coming back to more dance-oriented material with his new project, The Asphodells, and this succinct mix perfectly captures what dance music has been missing: some class. Via FACT:
In contrast to last year’s jumbo-sized The Masterpiece 3xCD mix album for Ministry Of Sound, the ‘Asphodells Mix’ is a succinct eight-track session. The tracklisting runs from glacial nu-disco (Artwork’s Breton remix) through to pomp-laden house (Mugwump’s ‘Boutade’), with nods towards Clinic and Baris K along the way. It’s a slinky set, full of synthesizer pulses, sinewy basslines, and the sonic equivalent of lens flare.
