Dream Kit - Dune Year Remixes (EP) (2011 - free download)
Since releasing the Future Tense EP in April, Dream Kit. has been wiling away the winter meditating on deep space, drum sounds and the endless ability of sub bass to warm one’s heart. With remixes for Otouto, Near Myth and Geoffrey O’Connor waiting in the wings for release and a stack of projects for new label collective // THIS THING // on the go, Dream Kit dispersed the techno dancehall skeleton of Dune Year - the brooding closing track Future Tense - to willing remixers.
Geoffrey O’Connor found some time in between releasing his new LP Vanity Is Forever to tune the gated reverb just right and deliver a true remix, juggling and interspersing the rugged original sounds with some bombastic 80’s beats.
Dream Kit collaborator Rambl takes a more drastic approach on his production debut, discarding much of the original and artfully disguising what’s left with a stripped back warehouse rave intro that shifts gears into a Detroit garage vibe right on the 2011 tip. Fans of Lone and Falty DL will enjoy this one.
David Evans, sticks man for This Is Your Captain Speaking and fresh from a beautiful record out on Sensory Projects, mutates Dune Year into an all too brief tribal drum excursion that yearns for an African Future.
Bombastic; Dynamic; Trippy: Three wild remixes straight out of Melbourne.
Dream Kit will be playing live at ACMI, Thursday December 15th at Galactic Nights with visuals by Blake Byron-Smith and soaring DJ sets by Simon Winkler (RRR). Doors open 6pm, Dream Kit on at 7pm, tickets here
"simmering with detailed rhythms...Dream Kit feels like the most unassuming kind of labour of love" Mess + Noise
"Kelly shows a delicate hand, piecing together woozy synths and brusque-yet-tentative beats that eventually give way to a suprisingly mournful ending. Recommended." Life Is Noise
