Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.

This is a remix album, the last official act for a couple of producers and djs that was a strong influence on the last years history of experimental / beatz (or mainstream / underground) relationship. We are talking about Michael Fakesch and Chris de Luca, better known as Funkstorung, BjÃ¶rk, Autechre and Wu-Tang Clan remixers. A career hovering between extreme experimental music and pop business, waving futuristic and distorted funky, but somehow always blinking to the sterile glossy world of the ‘fashionista’ establishment. Probably it’s the relentless destiny of those who were not able to embrace news scenes and movements, that in the groove area has produced a lot since the middle nineties. There was and there is still the stuff they were made of, so we’re a little bit sorry that the whole innovative talent is lost in the remixes trickles, even nice but without stylistic perspectives (except the one included in their brilliant biography). A sadly defunct path, waiting for the already scheduled solo debuts.
