Sed Wildblood announces Sketches Of Transition Remix EP
Following the release of his debut album, ‘sketches of transition’, UK house devotee Seb Wildblood has curated a brand new collection of remixes, inviting a cast of artists to reimagine tracks from the LP. Featuring contributions from Suzanne Kraft, object blue, Jenifa Mayanja, and Ciel, the four-track EP is set for release on 8th November on 12” vinyl. Digital and cassette editions of the EP will feature three bonus remixes courtesy of Tom VR, mauvand Wildblood himself.
Running Back and ESP Institute affiliate Suzanne Kraft opens into the collection, offering a typically atmospheric, Italo-inspired take on sombre pop cut ‘amelia’. Breakthrough experimental club producer and DJ, object blue, warps the easy-going pace set out in ‘sketches’, drawing focus to its woozy mood with muffled vocals and disjointed percussive hits. Swirling synths and a rich ambient tapestry make for an intoxicating rework.
On the B-side, Bumako Recordings boss Jenifa Mayanja puts a percussive deep house spin on the technicolor minimalism of ‘small talk’. A live bass groove pops beneath the track’s swaying synth beds and melodic chimes, making for the most “classic” dancefloor take of the bunch.
Discwoman affiliate and DJ/producer extraordinaire, Ciel, bathes ‘bahn’ in fluttering psychedelic percussion. Invoking the likes of Orbital, Boards of Canada and The Black Dog, with an emotional candour shining through the foggy atmosphere.
Seb Wildblood puts a dreamy UKG spin on ‘ghostie (feat. Buddy Love)’ in the digital/cassette bonus remixes. Emerging producer and vocalist, mauv, whose singing can be heard on several tracks on ‘sketches of transition’, provides a lush deep house reimagining of ‘one for malcolm’. Valby Rotary co-founder and purveyor of crisp, emotional house tunes, Tom VR finishes things properly with a kaleidoscopic take on ‘thought for food (feat. mauv)’ – an apt, shimmering warm-down.
