Dntel: Early Works, Later Versions
Black Vinyl12" Vinyl Single Record
No Longer Available
SummaryLast year, as part of the Phthalo Origins series, Phthalo Records reissued the very first albums and early recordings of Jimmy Tamborello, now much better known as one-half of The Postal Service. That very first release under his own artist name, Dntel's "Early Works for Me If It Works for You II" (as reviewed and acclaimed by Pitchfork et al) was comprised of three CDs of recordings from the late '90s, including the blueprint for material that would eventually become Dntel's breakthrough "Life is Full of Possibilities".
In the spirit of exploring the influence of this material over the past decade of electronic and indie music production, Phthalo has asked several artists who've said they were inspired by Dntel's "Early Works for Me..." record to re-approach those songs with their own modern and varied takes on the source material.
The result is "Early Works, Later Versions," a limited 12" record and digital download EP of new, updated remixes and variations on last year's "Early Works for Me..." album by several of Jimmy's current peers and modern contemporaries.
Running through some of the artists on hand for this task, To Rococo Rot's Robert Lippok (Mute Records, Monika, Raster-Noton) has clearly done this sort of thing before, and starts off by updating "Serious" into a twinkling and blippy rendering of the original, in many ways reminiscent of his "Falling Into Komeit" remix album several years ago. A new version by Chessie (Plug Research, Drop Beat) drops in indie guitar progressions to recall a lightweight take on electro, and Somatic Responses (Leaf Label, Hymen Records) drenches "Tybalt 60" with gritty and thunderous stabs of broken percussion. Finally, newcomer Thaddeus Valk uses an arpeggiated synth intro to rework "Casuals" into some other kind of tune from the 1990s - almost an IDM-meets-rave-meets-jungle hybrid. (In other words, it gets pretty Metalheadz-by-way-of-Oakenfold-y.)
