Following his excellent debut LP last year, “Exotic Language”, Joe Morris assembles a killer line up of diverse producers for the remix package, “Exotic Remixes”.
Gallo turns the opener “Firefly Island” into an acid-soaked, sunset-evoking trance out. Pacific Coliseum gently uplifts the cerebral “Celestial Plantation” with some fine live guitar work. On “Echo Station”, Coyote turns up the dubwise energy, while James Bright brings his super-polished modern Balearica sound to “Acid Safari”. Native Cruise infuses crunchy house drums with a lovely piano hook on “Perfume” and Manuel Darquart evokes Technique-era New Order with “A Dance With Jupiter”. With “Dream Clouds”, Newborn Jr brings the house down with an irresistible guitar hook and Italo Arps; Bliss Inc fuses his modern progressive style to “Spirit Walker”, while Man Power closes the proceedings with a tribal-heavy house workout on “Acid Safari”.
