In 2014, Berlin’s Gajek released the concept LP Restless Shapes for Monkeytown Records. That album was an intricate deconstruction of a major scale sequence played in endless repetition over two octaves: an electronic head-rush, nodding to Autechre, Chris Clark, 21C minimalism (Riley, Reich, Glass). Here, two of those pieces are reworked by electronic music royalty. First up is Raster Noton’s Alva Noto (Carsten Nicolai) who retunes the original ‘Curved Engines pt.04’ into a moody bass-line roller, then Warp’s Plaid takes ‘Restless Water Shapes’ and burns it with meticulous IDM trickery – bursting with melody. In Monkeytown’s own words “Guaranteed to make you smile, this package feels like an extremely fulfilling hypermodern club night compressed into just 2 tracks.”
