Laub – “Intuition: Remixes ” – [Kitty Yo]

Rococo   7/5/2005   A Library, CD

These remixes of German post-rock duo (or trio?) Laub are all over the stylistic map. Ninja Tune’s Clifford Gilberto turns in a dramatic orchestral track that highlights the German vocals of Laub’s Bjork-like singer Antye. Electronauten’s contribution is a slab of digi-dub with whispered vox. Pole is up to his old pops and clicks. Infracom artist (and part-time member of Laub) Phoneheads offers a moody but melodic drum’n’bass treatment. Antye’s vocals show up again on Blond’s “trip hop” track, probably the most pop-oriented of the bunch. And Richard Thomas creates the most off-the-wall “remix,” a collage of sounds and textures that eschews whatever German title it might have been given in favor of “Skyscrapers and Earthquakes Happen Incessant Chime.” And there’s much more to explore.
