Lord Tang vs. Window Twins
Lord Tang, aka Dominic Cramp has been messing with the Window Twins’ new single “Thunder and Lightning” by providing you with not just one, but two remixes: the “Blessed Be Remix” and the “Crushed Cloud Remix”. Prepare yourself as the collaborative brainchild of Jon Bernson and Tim Cohen gets taken further into altered zones through Tang’s usage of a loose dub foundation for his following sound carvings. We begin by dissecting “Blessed Be” which finds a structure like a phazed out analogue dub remix replete with horns and far off vocal samples that could be mistaken for muted horns.
Next is “Thunder and Lightning Lord Tang’s Crushed Cloud Remix”, and like the cloud reference alludes it is the spaciest of the two new mixes. Again horns play a part along with phazers, while the sound of strings and re-sequenced sample stems create the feeling like discovering a clandestine rocket silo. Look for the new Window Twins album Wish October 16 on cassette from Crash Symbols and vinyl from Volar Records.
