Junior Boys | DNO132

After what was already an eventful 2006 for Junior Boys... world tours, critical acclaim and enough press and internet accolades to, um... choke a horse, 2007 is shaping up to be even bigger for the Canadian duo. Consider the turn into the new year as the halfway point. In conjunction with the makers of The Warning and Bug In The Bassbin, amongst many others, we present you with a high-concept remix extended play that is a worthy entry to the already spotless Junior Boys discography.

For this EP release, we've gathered together a dizzying array of talents from the world of electronic music to bring their own personal touch to the music of Junior Boys. First up to bat is Carl Craig, the Detroit musical genius who needs no introduction and whose techno classicism is more timely than ever. His reworking of "Like A Child" is a subtle and brooding epic that is as cool and crisp as the winter nights on which it was created. Like a blast of warmth in its wake, Brit sensations Hot Chip arrive with their dreamy organic take on the popular "In The Morning." Tensnake, the solo project of Marco Niemerski of Arp Aubert, shifts gears from his exemplary minimalist house (search out his "Around The House" 12" for yourself), converting the airy 6/8 downtempo of "FM" into vibrant Martin Rushent four-on-the-floor electric dreams. The Hyperdub label out of London has been transmitting deep space futurist dub via the likes of Burial and in this case, that label's founder Kode 9 puts "Double Shadow" through a spin cycle before the textures of Marsen Jules revisit "FM," giving it a ghostliness that's equal parts Eno and Fennesz. Ride on...
