Francis Harris has released Thresholds Remixed, a package of remixed of his Thresholds album.
Released on Harris’ own Scissor and Thread label earlier this year, Thresholds is an album steeped in drone textures and electro-acoustic explorations. It’s an album far removed from the dancefloor, and to remix it Harris has enlisted some of his favourite boundary-pushing artists active on the fringes of the electronic music space.
First up is Manchester resident Hidden Spheres’ remix of “Earth Moves,” which is flipped into a pulsating slice of electronica. Yu Su, the up-and-coming producer currently living in Canada, takes the same track on a different journey, resulting in a slinky, affecting piece of music that eventually falls into a deep groove.
Speaker Music, the moniker of DeForrest Brown, Jr., wraps up the package with two reworks of the album’s title-track. The “Rhythm Remix” focuses on the original’s brass washes, and adds a thick, playful bass rhythm. The “Studio Soul” remix is more a free-form piece of audio manipulation and editing, resulting in a transportative piece of work that compliments the original track.
