ABOUT THIS RELEASE
Release Date: June 14, 2019
Once again producers & modular synth fanatics, Garry Hughes & Harvey Jones (collectively known as Delia Derbyshire Appreciation Society) have turned one of their songs over to a fascinating group of remixers and the results are both surprising and beautiful. Up to bat this time around is a stand out track from the duo’s second album Wow & Flutter, “She Brought The Sun” – a song that Electronic Sound Magazine called “Star-bound” and declared that it would “floor you”.
As with any DDAS Remix EP, the remixers have dug deep and offered up a diverse feast of sounds. Vocalist Donna Lewis (best known for her 1996 hit “I Love You Always Forever”) brings a lush treatment that finds her vocals weaving seamlessly with haunting electronics. Richard Barbieri (keyboardist with legendary art rockers Japan) has spun a sprawling ambient tone poem, while mixes from both Alucidnation & Pan Electric straddle the worlds of Ambient & Balearica. Perhaps most surprising, mixes from both Sweatson Klank & DDAS themselves bring a new rhythmic kick to the track, with the Sweatson Klank version cleverly incorporating elements of abstract hip hop.
Taken together, this EP promises to deliver a variety of Ambient anthems to soundtrack the summer months ahead.
“Majestic collection of elegant, gold-hued analogue instrumentals. Each immersive piece here is redolent with emotional substance and ploughs a distinct furrow that melds translucent ambient textures with deeply engaging neoclassical heft. The virtuoso complexity of works by Roedelius or Eno is beautifully referenced throughout and the star-bound “She Brought The Sun” will floor you- Electronic Sound Magazine (reviewing Wow and Flutter)
