The first release on Mr Projectile's new "Semisexual" imprint pairs him with the vocal talents of Amy Jennings and the remixing skills of Idm luminaries Funckarma and Lusine. The original mix of "Love Here" is a gorgeous arrangement of complex percussive arrangement, atmospheric melodic overlays and Amy's deeply evocative, layered vocal. Paced in slow motion, the production here is superb, crisp digital cuts and a broad melodic canvas that makes rich use of the vocal element that is so often missing from electronic material of this ilk. The Lusine reworking on the flip introduces a much more robust and upfront cut-up of beats in that unmistakeable Lusine style, a jerked-up epileptic breakbeat paying relentless attention to the decimation of the vocal into shards of stuttering melodies - just aweome. Funckarma slow it right down and unmask that killer use of deep basslines that they have gotten so good at with killer precision, changing tempo and offering distraction with a scattered arrangement of malfunctioning top-end beats and re-written chords. Dark and moving with equal measure, a formidable start to what will undoubtedly become another highly collectable imprint. Ace.
