Various Artists - Mischpoke #1: Remix 12" [Hauch Records 023]

Coming in from Düsseldorf-based label Hauch Records these days is "Mischpoke #1: Remix 12"" , the imprints latest vinyl outing which presents a selection of four tracks produced by the likes of Johenson, Ai, Rhein and Antonia D. Luca which are remixed by BKDG Audio, Gras, Sonae and Lucrecia Dalt respectively. Put out on the circuit on December 2nd, 2k22 as a limited edition of 333 copies the musical journey leads us from the drifting, washed out and somewhat EDM- x (Neo)Trance-infused Bigroom TechHouse for daytime festival floors of "Timekiller" to the deep and dubbed out, well multilayered IDM x Electronica vibes of "Archaic Iftar" whereas "Takes", which might be our favorite cut on this release, provides the most spine-tingling take on stripped down, minimalist Ambient we've heard in a while, taking us back to the age of tunes like Scanner's "Mass Observation" series or even further down the line when it comes to early experimentation in Minimal Music perpetrated by the likes of Steve Reich etc all before "For Morton Feldman" pairs off-kilter Industrial Ambient loops, low frequency background drones and tender, intimate and inward looking Contemporary Classical piano etudes for a calm, yet most beautiful closing. Quite an intriguing release, this one is. Go check.
