When commissioning remixes. the best labels think outside the box. That s exactly what Firecracker s Lindsay Todd did when seeking out producers to rework tracks from Linkwood s excellent Expressions album. On this second 12- in an ongoing series. that faith has paid dividends. Whereas the original version of Ignorance Is Bliss was a warm. woozy. sun-kissed deep house affair. Healing Force Project has reinvented it as a stargazing chunk of 21st century space jazz. complete with twinkling chords. low-slung double bass and reverb-laden drum solos. The Musephased interpretation of Love Lost by Kimochi label head Area sticks closer to the ultra-deep. melancholic vibe of Linkwood s original. but adds a frisson of excitement via bubbling. Detroit-influenced electronics and hypnotic rhythms.
