hynotise_coverThis 12″ came out in ’97 on the UK Drum & Bass label Certificate 18. It features two remixes of tracks by Lexis. One by Klute and the other by Autechre. Both remixes are excellent but I think the Autechre one is really brilliant. A very strange take on Drum & Bass. Like the title of the song it really is hypnotic. The skittering drums shuffling around the central, slowly evolving organ melody. Autechre (Rob Brown and Sean Booth) have been releasing albums together since ’93. Last year they released their ninth, the brilliant Quaristice. Each new release pushes the envelope of experimental electronica a little further.
