Extra Works - Brendon Moeller - EDLX.028
Last May Brendon Moeller released his ninth studio album, â€˜Worksâ€™, showcasing a new and decidedly club-oriented sound. The album itself was the product of a yearlong collaboration between Moeller and Electric Deluxeâ€™s Jochem Paap in a peer-to-peer-type flow of creativity the label has become known for, resulting in a unique assimilation of both artistsâ€™ sonic signatures. Plying his veteran dub tropes to more classic techno frames, Moeller crafted a truly transcendental record full of versatile and profoundly engaging materialâ€”be it on extended listens at home or in a club. Since then Moeller has taken â€˜Worksâ€™ to floors worldwide, and completed a campaign to â€˜fixâ€™ the track of a budding producerâ€™s to be including in a pending release. â€˜Extra Worksâ€™ is the outcome, and a rich posthumous summation of the project with fresh remixes and a new track from Moeller himself.
First up, fellow analogue champion Mike Parker offers an icy, stripped-down interpretation of the protracted wonky thinker â€œFar Outâ€, with tough thundering bass pulses and all the ominous atmospheres of feeling stranded deep in outer space. â€œJust another way to flyâ€, a new work from Brendon Moeller, continues the cosmic theme with a retroactive meander through bygone sci-fi. Full of machine-crafted sounds and fluctuating rhythmical patterns â€œJust Another Way To Flyâ€ is a fine example of Moellerâ€™s experimental and un-orchestrated approach to production, and the kind of unique and potent results that can evolve through his improvised methodology. Speedy J then presents a very special edit of â€œFar Outâ€ in this trimmed down version of the sprawling 15-minute original Moeller first sent over at the start of the collaboration. Unlike previous â€œFar Outâ€ tracks, thereâ€™s nothing languorous about Speedy Jâ€™s hastened cut, delivered however with all the poise and hypnotic qualities weâ€™ve come to expect from the Electric Deluxe head. â€œSome Heavy Shitâ€, produced by Dutch artists Philogresz and â€˜fixedâ€™ by Brendon Moeller, concludes â€˜Extra Worksâ€™ with another unique crossover of styles culminating in an instantly appealing balance of quirky Moeller experimentalisms and some thoroughly danceable modern techno.
