Mind Fair is a new project from Dead Meredith (Chicken Lips, Bizarre Inc, Goat Dance) and Ben Shenton who will release ‘Kerry’s Scene’ on International Feel next month. Warped psychedelic grooves that creep inside your brain and turn your neurones into hallucinogenic receptors, this is possibly the most wigged out releases from the Uruguayan label yet. And, not only do you get swamp funk and moog madness, the record is backed up with stunning remixes from Theo Parrish under his Sound Signatures moniker and Dutch techno-terrorist Legowelt. Pitchfork are streaming the original and Legowelt mixes. Check them here.
Dean Meredith, best known for his work alongside Steve Kotey and Andy Meecham as Chicken Lips, but also part of Bizarre Inc and all of Goat Dance and White Light Circus, is to release an album as The Rhythm Odyssey. First appearing last year with a self-titled 12", The Rhythm Odyssey’s debut album, Metaphysical Transition, will be released in February.
Taking inspiration from the classics of yesteryear’s Metaphysical Transition is one part Prelude to two parts Traxx with a dash of Ron Hardy style roughness sprinkled over the top. All of the 12 tracks are designed for club use, and the breadth of styles form raw jack tracks to Hacienda house jams should ensure that this collection appeal to DJ’s and music lovers wide and far.
