A Great Idea,
This review is from: Biophilia Remix Series I (MP3 Download)
When Biophilia came out, I must admit I was disappointed with the lack of singles that came off the back of Crystalline/ Cosmology. Since the album was released I've been listening to it, thinking it would be great to hear mixes off it. But singles are not as effective as they used to be so it was a slim chance that they were going to come out as bonus tracks to further singles. That was until this fantastic news that Bjork is releasing 2 mixes every two weeks from now until July. And the first two do not disappoint. The Current Value mix of Crystalline is the best mix I've heard of it so far. There is a metallic industrial edge which highlights the mad drum and bass ending of the original version, through the mix. It's great. The second mix Solstice is barely recognisable from the original - in a good way. It's as if the original gentle track has been forced through a meat mincer and come out the other way as something quite different.
These mixes do not disappoint. All I can say is bring on April 30th - for the next two!
