Four years on from the release of Glacial's debut album - a favourite of Ricardo Villalobos, who clearly appreciated its blend of electronic minimalism, dub and woodwind instruments - co-producer George Laimos has decided to get some remixes done. This time round, he's turned to Dutchman Ion Ludwig, who delivers a trio of long, winding interpretations. A-side "I" is a 12-minute exploration of intertwining saxophone solos, clarinet lines, and jazzy textures, underpinned by a sparse but solid techno groove. He explores Glacial's dub influences a little more on the darker, chunkier "II", before rounding things off with the smoky saxophones, sustained note chords and hypnotic grooves of "III".
