Background/Info: After the promising debut album “Eleven Grinding Sounds” the duo Lean-Marc Lederman – Jean-Luc De Meyer released a second EP taken from this opus.
Content: The title song of this EP “Atoms In Fury” has been remixed by Mark Hockings (Mesh). Krischan Wesenberg (Rotersand, Future Lied To Us…) remixed “Flowers And Birds And Bees” and “Not Really There” while Belgian techno talent/producer Glenn Keteleer (Radical G) remixed “Back To Nature”. The last song is the album-version of “Atoms In Fury”.
+ + + : The most noticeable element and fact of this EP is the short, but qualitative list of artists who made a remix. I have a preference for the minimal-like and aggressive EBM-driven remix of “Back To Nature”. The original song (which is a cover version of Fad Gadget) has been transposed into something completely different. The bass line is absolutely amazing.
– – – : I can imagine Fad Gadget fans could have been shocked when they discovered the Lederman / De Meyer-cover version of the album, but they really gone die when discovering Radical G’s adaptation. I honestly expected bit more out of the other remixes.
Conclusion: This EP is definitely interesting for its remixers although big names don’t always bring the greatest remixes…
Best songs: “Back To Nature – Radical G Remix”, “Atoms In Fury – Mark From Mesh / Block All cookies Remix”.
