Album Review

Frost, Ben – “Variant” – [bedroom community]

Kai Sync   3/30/2016   12-inch, A Library



Ben Frost is an Australian composer/producer that currently resides in Iceland. His works are minimalistic and experimental tracks with influences from classical minimalism all the way to punk and black metal. This EP is a set of remixes for the Bedroom Community label done by other producers based on his material from the 2014 Aurora album. The Evian Christ remix of Venter is experimental and melodic dubstep, Dutch E Germ’s remix of the same track is more industrial film music with unexpected dynamic changes. The HTRK remix of Venter has a minimalistic slow techno flavor similar to Vatican Shadow. Kangding Ray’s remix of No Sorrowing is a German style techno remix. Finally Nolan mixed by Regis has an industrial doomsday techno flavor. Each track has a very unique style which shows the strength of using producers with different backgrounds to remix the original material.
