You Make Me Real - The Remixes
Label: !K7 Records
Berlin's Brandt Brauer Frick make dance music with largely acoustic means, recording and performing with a chamber ensemble that includes prepared piano, percussion and (of course) a laptop. Here, Leonel Castillo luxuriates in supple piano chords in his Balearic house remix, while Lance Gamble sinks into velvety, reverberant dub. The highlight is Pepe Bradock's "Geoduck Dive Remix," a wriggling acid-house number daubed with vibraphones, piano and voice. Once again, the legendary French producer reminds us that dance music needn't check its ambitions at the door.
