Work Ethics - Brendon Moeller - EDLX.024
Gearing up for the release of Works, Brendon Moellerâ€™s long player homage to â€˜the spirit of technoâ€™, Electric Deluxe taps two of the albumâ€™s polar moments for remixes to deliver Work Ethics.
Selecting one of Worksâ€™ toughest tracks for the A-side, â€˜Adjust to the Fading Lightâ€™, the EP opens with a rare vocal refix from Berghain resident Ben Klock. Whilst difficult to pin Klockâ€™s productions to any particular style, as a remixer heâ€™s proven even more versatility and vision, reworking artists as diverse as Martyn, Kenny Larkin and Depeche Mode to Emptyset and Steve Bug. Meanwhile Moeller mutes the hats and brings the trackâ€™s whirring dystopian bed to the fore with his Echologist version, jettisoning its original surge for more swollen and experimental terrains.
On the flip, Worksâ€™ luscious dubbed out number â€˜Writing Wrongsâ€™ is pulled further apart and dragged to dark subaqueous depths by Echospace duo Rod Modell and Stephen Hitchell as cv313. Melbourne-based producer Craig McWhinney on the other hand takes â€˜Writing Wrongsâ€™Â in the other direction entirely, soaring past Moellerâ€™s original to conclude Work Ethics on a hazy sun kissed dub trip thatâ€™s altogether soothing, light and mesmerising.
