Stream: Hear Gonjasufi remixed Bear In Heaven and Mark Pritchard
Out 1st October on Warp, the album will feature reworks by Bibio, Broadcast, Bear In Heaven, Mark Pritchard (Harmonic 313), and more.
Like the Caliphs of the Ummahs of the 7th century, orchestrating affairs from their palaces, Gonjasufi has assembled a collection of artists in his musical world and invited them to exchange ideas. In this spirit, the symbolic and musical centerpiece of the album, as well as its namesake, is the result of the mutual admiration formed between Gonjasufi and Broadcast and The Focus Group. A bewitching, drastic re-working of “DedNd” it takes the form of a suite of layered compositions and radiophonic transmissions.
Elsewhere, reinterpretations from new talents shine while established artists continue to surprise. Mark Pritchard channels Ennio Morricone with epic orchestral dystopia on his remix of “Ancestors” while retaining the inherent gravity of Flying Lotus’ original production. Bibio smooths out the rough edges of “Candylane” for a remix indebted to the 1980s R&B leftfield, while Brooklyn’s Bear In Heaven and Oneohtrix Point Never deal in heavy motorik meditations and ethereal musique concrete.
