Phonica Special Editions follow up their inaugural release with an EP featuring three remixes of singer, producer and Toronto native, Sandro Perri. Sandro has released more than a dozen solo and collaborative records under his given name as well as under the Polmo Polpo & Glissandro 70 monikers, mainly on Canadian cult imprint Constellation.
“Love & Light / The Drums Remixes” features reworks from Worst friends Tom Croose and Slow Hands. Fresh from his recent outing on Resista, Tom Croose is kept busy with not one, but two remixes of mr Perri. First up and taking up the whole of side A, “Love & Light” – originally on 2011’s “Impossible Spaces” – gets a subtle electronic re-rub with restrained electronic flourishes that gently complement the original's organic, ethereal sound – a weirdly captivating, mystical trip! All that, while getting boosted from a criminally short three and a half minutes to a more respectable nine plus…
Next up is Slow Hands, Tom Croose’s partner in Worst Friends who has released on Wolf+Lamb. He takes “The Drums” (a track from Sandro’s debut album “Tiny Mirrors”) to places where it’s never been before. by re-imagining the song into a breezy summer anthem where old school electric piano stabs, handclaps and a general feel-good vibes take centre stage.
Rounding off this excellent remix 12” we have Tom Croose again, who returns for another version of “The Drums” and harmoniously marries synth riffs and a laid back groove with Sandro’s signature contemplative vocal, rounding off this excellent remix package in style.
Pressed on limited quantity 180g vinyl with high quality full colour sleeve.
