electro act Interlace is back with its new release "Under the Sky"
and it's not anything to write home about. Their club mix of the title
track has a galloping bassline coupled with a pounding drum beat that
one can sing the lyrics for "Assimilate" by Skinny Puppy over
quite effortlessly. The other remixes are either minimal and strained
(Canada's Headscan) or once again, a pointless attempt to integrate drum'n'bass
(Sweden's Oliver Beach). As a matter of course, all that Mr Beach does
is utilize some very recognizable and annoying d'n'b loops at half-speed
and then overlay them with key lines which a two-year old could play with
half its fingers lopped off. The remix of "Missing Link" by
Akira Yamaoka (who has created music for the "Silent Hill" games)
jumps around a bit more than the others but one always knows which way
the change ups are headed. Thoroughly unremarkable.
