After unanimous praise for Talker’s 'Battle Standards' and play from the likes of Ancient Methods, Headless Horseman, Sunil Sharpe, Mumdance, Shifted and many others, Standards & Practices returns with a powerful set of remixes from iconic UK techno artists Surgeon, Regis, and Broken English Club.
Anthony Child kicks off the proceedings with his first remix in over a year, and it's one of his best to date. His version of 'Battle Standard' takes the track in a radically different direction, building a hair-raising wall of sound culminating in an unforgettable melodic refrain, beautiful and brutal in classic Surgeon fashion. The A2 track is a special bonus: a Talker cut only previously available on a limited edition CD compilation. Entitled 'My Favorite Color Is Gold', this is a dark and cinematic ambient take on '(Gold) Standard'.
On the flip, Oliver Ho delivers a remix of DJ favorite 'Snub Nose' under his Broken English Club alias. His overhaul is nothing short of remarkable. Only retaining a segment of the original drum track, he adds a post-punk-esque vocal while a vicious, monotone bassline snarls underneath, sounding like it slithered off of a Big Black LP sometime around 1985. Regis closes the EP with his brilliant broken-beat take on 'Battle Standard', stripping the original to its essentials for maximum dancefloor impact.
As with the label’s previous EPs from Stave and Talker, this package features stunning full-color sleeve art from acclaimed graphic design studio Common Name, and a limited number are pressed on silver colored vinyl. Distribution by Triple Vision, Rotterdam.
