If you had to pick a handful of highlights from Efdemin's bulging biography, we'd wager that 2007's "Acid Bells" and 2007's "America" would be amongst them. Curle Recordings clearly thinks so, too, because they've decided to deliver freshly remixed versions of both. Fittingly, veteran Detroiter Terrence Parker reworks "America", dousing Efedemin's Steve Reich style cyclic melody in copious amounts of delay and reverb whilst maintaining a metronomic, Motor City style minimal techno groove. DJ Koze sprints off in the other direction, adding waves of pots-and-pans percussion hits to the already-wonky brilliance of "Acid Bells". Both revisions are relatively reverential and sound like sure-fire early morning winners.
