Anonymous British producer Russian Linesman launches his second series of remix EPs today with eight reinterpretations of his original track How Can The Sky Be So Beautiful When We Have Been So Bad? Remixes come from Avus, Somfay, Aiden, Magic Panda, Matthys and Betamax Warriors with each delivering a fresh new angle on what was already an emotion-packed two and half minutes.
Released in 2017, the original How Can The Sky... track came from an earlier series of seven track EPs called The Eysenck Suites, inspired by the psychological theories of Hans Eysenck and the emotions that they encompass. Check out this Ransom Note article for more info and this DMC interview provides further insight.
While the Avus Acids Remix is a particular highlight, along with Somfay's BOC-indebted, moody piece, my favourite is the extended version from the man himself, somehow packing in even more emotion.
Out now on Loki Recordings.
