ccfx The Remixes (12", £11.50)label: D.F.A.
Sometimes the best remixes come direct from the artist themselves. Following the success of their debut EP, CCFX return to reimagine and reiterate all four tracks. At times turbulent, at others serene and throughout unabashedly raffish, these instrumental versions take the liberty of exploding the originals and thrusting the fragments into deeper and more ornate sonic territory. Minimal beats as well as pumped up breaks take the forefront here, rendering nascent atmospheric jungle and dubbed out Balearic new wave. Though it was released in October 2017, the original EP is still making waves, having been hyped by the likes of NPR, Pitchfork and NME. With this new record, the band demonstrate their versatility in addition to their songwriting talent. Always willing to take risks, ‘The Remixes’ is a masterful selector’s spin on their late 90s / early 00s indie pop-oriented sounds. The band aren’t slowing down either, as this release comes on the heels of the band’s debut live performance on KEXP and ahead of their appearance at Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington state.
