As heady as Holly Herndon‘s debut album (Movement, available now through RVNG Intl.) is, we wish it had more tracks like “Fade.” Meaning: tortured techno that applies the composer/producer’s classical training in a way that’s warm, woozy and welcoming. It’s as if we just wandered into the peak hour point of a DJ set in a warehouse on the very outskirts of Berlin, and as Herndon’s samples gain in speed, we can’t help but get pulled into the tractor beam of her black-lit beats.
Enter NHK then, with a remix that’s even more manic than its source material. Can someone press this on a heavy one-sided slab of vinyl please? Thanks.
