Premiere: Beck-Fields – “De Anima” (Giant Claw Remix)

Posted by on September 8, 2015


Capping off a dozen releases since their launch early this year, Philadelphia’s Noremixes imprint is setting out to clarify its name and intentions with a new remixtape titled ONLYREMIXES Vol. 1; assembled from various artists’ re-imaginings of earlier albums in their catalog. The tracklist draws on a combination of more and less familiar acts, Noremixes alums like Joo Won Park and label proprietor Starkey are represented alongside other newcomers, like Keith Rankin, aka Giant Claw, with his careful rending of “De Anima” by Delaware duo Beck-Fields. The track is taken from their album Sophia, an oblique but still brilliantly engaging collection of improvised post-net atmospheres released earlier this spring, which Rankin diverts into techno-tinged beat excursions for an inverted reflection of the skittering original.

PreorderONLYREMIXES Vol. 1 at the Noremixes Bandcamp — it’s officially out September 18th, but you’ll be able to download Starkey’s edit for Golden Ratio Syrup and the Giant Claw remix in the meantime.
