Terrence Dixon – Minimalism Re:Vision with Mike Huckaby, Silent Servant, DVS1 Remixes (THEMA033 – 2012)

The year 2012 has been marked by Terrence Dixon’s domination, as we have seen a rush of releases by him, particularly the excellent new album on Tresor. Most recently a glimpse to the history books has been offered by Delsin when they reissued two Population One tracks.
Now comes another blast from the past when US label Thema has dusted off a seminal release from 1995 and offered it for reinterpretations. “Minimalism” was a statement when issued by Utensil and from the original four-tracker not surprisingly the A2 cut has been selected for the remixes by three US artists.
Mike Huckaby, Dixon’s contemporary from Detroit, has chosen the classic Motor City way with some heavy-hitting claps and looping pads. Pretty contrasting, Berghain-like version comes from Silent Servant when angry bass rides in industrial landscape and on the flip DVS1 aka Zak Khutoretsky adds some lighter notes with housey keys and hi-hats accompanying a catchy groove. Then for the end the pitched-down original emerges from the cosmic dust for monotone and percussive moments.
