Ghostly International‘s Heathered Pearls revisits his gorgeous 2017 ambient techno EP, Detroit, MI 1997-2001, with a collection of remixes which further interpret the material and the city of Detroit that had so greatly shaped the Polish-born, Brooklyn-based artist.
So far, Alexander’s shared the first of the reworks, Matrixxman’s “8 am techno reawakening,” an acidic, lo-fi interpretation of “Under The Bridge,” one of three new angles for the piece on the remix set.
Drilling the ethereal number deeper into the underground and stripping the track of its pearlescent shimmer, Matrixxman unveils a rattling, old-school acid techno. With a much more immediate interpretation, Matrixxman’s “8 am mix” possesses both a fitting title and the contrasting properties to enjoy in accordance with the dreamy original.
Detroit, MI 1997-2001 Remixes is out July 13. Pre-order it here.
