Review

Having collared Timothy Fairplay for last year's excellent John Carpenter's Sound, the Astrolab label turn to Scott Fraser, his partner in Crimes Of The Future for their latest 12". Whereas Fairplay's contribution took obvious influence from the soundtrack work of the director inferred in its title, we're not 100 per cent sure how much influence the films of John Hughes have on Fraser's production "A John Hughes Production". It is however a wonderfully kaleidoscopic example of Fraser's slow build approach married to a sound closer in heart to disco and has been a staple of A Love From Outer Space for some time now. There is also the added bonus of an excellent Mark E remix that shifts proceedings into churning slo mo techno. You could argue that Fraser and Evetts have a similar slow building approach, though this remix demonstrates they also have distinctly separate routes to arriving at the same end product!
