Nmesh – Drug Full Of Remixes


Nmesh - Drug Full of Remixes front cover art

“Fans, peers, and proper legends have a go at one of the most deranged and colossal Nmesh tracks in recent history – no holds barred – results vary drastically – i can’t believe i still have say this, but ๐’ซ๐ฟ๐ธ๐’œ๐’ฎ๐ธ ๐ธ๐’ฉ๐’ฅ๐’ช๐’ด ๐‘…๐ธ๐’ฎ๐’ซ๐’ช๐’ฉ๐’ฎ๐ผ๐ต๐ฟ๐’ด.” – NMESH

A lovely review of the cubus remix by listencorp:

“We end with Cubus. A grey fog falls over us as we lay bruised and beaten by all the tracks before. Flashes appear all around us, but the layer of echoed sound shrouds like fog and does not permit us to see the full form of anything. An austere take on Nmeshโ€™s original, we find ourselves adrift. Not tripping out in any immediate or intense way, but awash with ethereal plumes of grey nothingness. Certain tones and sounds hang in the air in front of us. It becomes impossible to identify melody from percussion. The artistโ€™s employed in this remix compilation have made it their duty to stretch the boundaries of the source material so far, that the final take on the track is unbelievably poignant and affecting. Much like Drohnwerks remix, its difficult to identify what was used from Mall Full of Drugs in this track. But the boundless chasm that is enshrined before us is the perfect closer to a perfect journey.”

The Mirror and the Light by Middlemarch


The Mirror and the Light album cover

Finally something new from cubus ! The duo of Dimitris Avramidis and Ross Baker, better known as Middlemarch, join the Carpe Sonum roster after the quietly devastating Wolf Hall, issued on Time Released Sound in 2014. This disc of remixes retains the magisterial heft and splendor of that sterling debut, with all the albumโ€™s participants building on the duoโ€™s template while adding numerous idiosyncratic touches of their own. The opening โ€œVisitationโ€, strangely enough, doesnโ€™t really prepare you for the detached, pixillated sparsescape of โ€œThe Dead Complain of their Burialโ€ but its cinematic vocabulary is as revealing in its own atmospheric way as its predecessor. Across the recordโ€™s timespan, the collective of remixers that includes Mick Chillage, Maps and Diagrams, Darren McClure, Ambidextrous, Neotropic, Off Land, and others wrestle with the duoโ€™s blossoming & Budd-ing tendencies, reflecting the subtly shifting piano motifs and flurrying electronic textures in their own inimitable fashion. Chillage especially shines, as his interpretation of โ€œA Painterโ€™s Eyeโ€ is a thing of regal beauty. Neotropicโ€™s post-classical side is also especially notable, as her version of โ€œVisitation” channels a strange, quasi-glitchy/ivory-tickled hybrid, maximizing a myriad of odd warbles and Derbyshire-esque touches to produce over six minutes of pure pleasure. So rarely do remix albums succeed on their own merits; hereโ€™s one where the sum easily transcends its component parts, setting a new gold standard by which successive others will no doubt be judged.

Memories Overlooked: A Tribute To The Caretaker


Album cover

Memories Overlooked: A Tribute To The Caretaker”, is a collaborative effort of over 90 artists (including a new one from cubus), paying tribute to the visionary works of Leyland Kirby — in particular his Caretaker project, a long-running ambient affair exploring memory, nostalgia, and more recently, the effects of dementia. In proper fashion, this compilation was diagnosed with having early onset dementia, and is mixed and arranged in accordance with the advancement of the disease. Every passing hour, to quote Mr. Kirby in regards to his ‘Everywhere At The End Of Time’ series, “will reveal new points of progression, loss and disintegration. Progressively falling further and further towards the abyss of complete memory loss and nothingness.” The project began as a compilation for the fans, by the fans – yet upon receiving numerous submissions from artists whose family members had battled with dementia, it seemed to take on a more meaningful purpose.

100% of the digital proceeds of this compilation will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association (, who for 37 years, have been advancing research to end Alzheimer’s and dementia while enhancing care for those living with the disease. The prestigious No Problema Tapes will be releasing an exclusive run of 4x cassette box sets before the end of the year. (stay sharp…)

Tonight, let’s all raise a golden drink to Leyland Kirby, aka The Caretaker. We know the score.

Speaking about the project, label founder Martin Boulton said: โ€œAfter three years of running Touched, โ€˜Touched 3โ€™ is the biggest and (I think) the best release to date. I’ve been overwhelmed from the start with the support and kindness of everyone who has contributed to, and been touched by, Touched Music. Not only can people feel good from giving to charity, they get a shitload of top tunes – a win-win in my book. Music can make a difference.โ€
