Sandro Perri : Spaced Out

Toronto’s Sandro Perri was responsible for one of my favourite albums of 2011 (Impossible Spaces) and one of the best sets I saw at Primavera the following year, but HEY! Let’s stop living in the past! NOW is where it’s at, and right now (literally RIGHT NOW) Perri has new music (well, kinda new music) out for you to fall in love with: completing a series that has also seen releases on the DFA and Phonica labels, Constellation Records have just put out a 22-minute EP featuring remixes of three of Impossible Spaces‘ finest moments. The appropriately titled Spaced Out finds the glorious “Wolfman” reimagined as a swarm of looped drones by Le Révélateur (Roger Tellier-Craig of Fly Pan Am/ Pas Chic Chic) and “How Will I” transformed into a cut ‘n’ paste abstract jazz-house collage by Japanese producer Imugem Orihasam; the highlight, however, comes in the form of a distinctly dancefloor-friendly rework of “Love & Light” from Larry Gus that apparently employs over 500 samples extracted from the original song’s stems. Check it out below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
