Harold Heath & Tom Lown – HAL 9000

Harold Heath Tom Lown HAL 9000 DeepWit
A heavyweight team-up here, lent yet more weight by the presence of a remix from Q-Burns Abstract Message. It's a split affair, with an original apiece: Tycho from Heath and Urbana from Lown. The two then take it in turns to remix each other's tracks, while the Q-Burns remix actually blends the two together. And yes, it is a bit confusing.

Tycho is, in both mixes, a pleasantly chugging, early-set kind of affair, based around an insistently rolling riff made up of – I think – muted piano chords. Lown sprinkles the track with a little added late-night space dust, while his own Urbana is a laidback, post-club groove to start with that Heath beefs up a little on his rub.

Q-Burns AM's mastermix thingummy then mixes n' matches the lot into a more abstract, leftfield concoction that gets quite dub-wise in places. But I've gotta say, it's actually the original of Tycho that stands out for me.
