UK electronica veterans Posthuman recently made their debut on Belfast label Acroplane with Nebula EP, five new tracks of acid-infused electronica.
Now followed by four remixes from Nightwave, techno legend Kirk Degiorgio, Datassette, and The Host (new Planet Mu moniker of Boxcutter’s Barry Lynn)
Nightwave ups the tempo with her Ravemix of Marrus Environ, four to the floor kicks set against 909 beats and echoing vocal samples. Kirk Degiorgio heads straight for the Berghain dancefloor with a crunchy acid techno rework of Tessier Ashpool. Datassette’s take on Tessier leads into deeper territory, underwater pads and heavy compression, and The Host closes the EP with a dark footwork version of Marrus, drifting bleeps flowing around hyperactive electro rhythms.

"Taking the source material from Posthuman’s cracking ‘Nebula’ 12”, Richard Bevan and Josh Doherty have roped in some of their mates to tackle the reworks, and rather good mixes they’ve turned out to be. The Host reduces ‘Marros Environ’ into a reverberating soup of footwork rhythms and clipped synth sounds and Degiorgio opts for a bass-heavy take on ‘Tessier Ashpool’, but my pick of the bunch is Datasette’s expert Monolake-esque re-imagining of ‘Tessier Ashpool’ and the ace clipped/peaking House re-work from Nightwave. Cavernous and epic sounding, it’s still dance music, just with massive icy balls." - Boomkat
