· Nearing their first birthday, Other People are celebrating the only way they knows how: ‘Work’. The compilation consists almost entirely of new material from Other People’s artist roster plus a few remixes from some special guests. ‘Work’ is not, however, an uncooked mash of music. Its
sequencing is deliberate and its selection purposefully not encompassing. In fact, ‘Work’ is more an album than anything else.
· Kicking off the affair is Soul Keita, whose roots run back to the days of Nicolas Jaar’s first label, Clown & Sunset. Dave Harrington follows with a cover of the Nick Drake song ‘Things Behind The Sun’ with the singer Tamara. His amorphous chords flow right into the tight groove of VISUALS’ ‘A Pixel’, produced by Nico and featuring some guitar by Dave.
· Darkside also pay their dues with two unreleased tracks from their ‘Psychic’ sessions. The duo of Jaar and Harrington will play one final show as Darkside in September in New York so this will be the last chance of a slice of the Darkside pie.
· Putting a nail in the coffin, German pyro-techno duo Ancient Astronaut do battle with a troupe of remixers. The first comes in snarling at the hands of Powell. The second builds gently with the subtle touch of Jelinek.
