French label Astro Lab Recordings are releasing their very first compilation CD, Treasure Hunting, which showcases an ethos for embracing a broad spectrum of styles and genres.
While the compilation sounds pretty good in it’s entirety, Treasure Hunting, introduces one of the most tantalizing remixes of the year from legendary DJ & producer Andrew Weatherall. Weatherall has reworked his colleague and studio engineer, Timothy J Fairplay‘s ‘Sleighride/Blizzard’. It is an awesome track, chugging along a murky mix of Krautrock and dub sounds, aided by delayed scratchy guitar, forming into a hypnotic druggy electronic beast.
Check it and Populette’s remix of another Timothy J Fairplay track, ‘Xylophone’, below. Treasure Hunting will be released on June 25th, 2012.
