According to the label, the late Bryn Jones recorded this untitled track during the mid-80s and used tape loops instead of sampler to create the rolling breaks and rough riffs that comprise "Untitled". Fittingly, Optimo Trax has commissioned Victor Shan and Running Back's Gerd Janson to rework it.
Starting off on the A side is Penelope's Fiance from Thessaloniki, who serves up a lo-fi and coldwave perspective of the Boards Of Canada on "Run & Gun", while Italians Rawmance and Security team up on the slo-mo EBM mutation of "Un Bon Flic" - bringing you the sound of latter's Knick Knack Yoda burger club in Rome. On the flip, Mannequin boss Alessandro Adriani gives us the gnarly 303 acid epic "Do Not Deliver Me Into The Enemy's Hands" and Raw Ambassador aka Antonio Barbetta gives us the early industrial sounds of "Attack, Attack!".
Bahnsteig bang the box once again with a super-sick six shooter from Toulouse head Caissard DJ. Taking a whole lot of inspiration from worm-based, sand-psych sci fi dynasty Dune, Caissard slices and dices his way through pagan futurism, minimal wave, fourth world abstraction, dub cosmic, EBM and taiko drumming.
This contains a brilliant fusion of loose-limbed jazz breaks and early Warp style "bleeps and bass" (the fantastic "Damenongiveme"), a rolling but spacey chunk of early Black Dog-influenced techno-funk ("Psygan"), a couple of slabs of moody electro and the quirky, Luke Vibert-ish IDM quirkiness of closer "Omar Belka".
LD Fantasy Tracks' is made up of bittersweet melodies, bumpy bass lines and wonky old samplers and is punctuated by coloured drum sounds. These 6 tracks serve as a journey into melodic house and revel in the fantasy and spontaneity of the vibe. As Too Smooth Christ preaches, 'it has to be a first-try thing'.
