  • les boucles absurdes: lines
        (2014, download, bel, off records)

For "Lines", Jean-Pierre Jonckheere (mastermind of Les Boucles Absurdes) asked four collegues to rework, reconstruct and remix the music of Les Boucles Absurdes.
The result is quite fascinating
Seesayle takes the mysterious approach. Subdued vocals and eastern elements make her contribution a perfect and impressive start.
Pierre Vervloesem continues with a (re)mix that adds powerful beats and enchanting guitar lines. Great.
Next up is Clémentine Collette (also know as DJ Clémix). This must be the club / dub version. A great beat with a fine bass line. Nice. Very nice.
The final 'Line' is drawn by Gilles Mortiaux. Gilles remix begins rather spooky and chaotic, and slowly turns into a rock song. Almost. Beautiful layers.

The funny thing is that these four different remixes and approaches fit together very well.
