'The Illectrik Hoax' EP Out Now
DJ Food - 'The Illectrik Hoax' EP Out Now
Posted on 27/04/2012
The next phase in the DJ Food story is the extraction and near complete annihilation of "The Illectrik Hoax" from his album The Search Engine by the Amorphous Androgynous (aka The Future Sound of London). The AA began work in the Autumn of 2011 and by the turn of the new year had turned in a 17 minute Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble Mix that contained not one, not two, but three distinct 'tracks'. Accompanying said remix / reinterpretation / rebirth was a communiqué - you can read the full text here.
We couldn't have put it better ourselves. To add to the confusion they've also supplied a radio edit of the third track, "The Electric Images (In My Mind Never Die)". DJ Food has also stripped his own 9 minute reworking of The The's "GIANT" featuring the man himself, Matt Johnson, down to a serviceable 4 minutes too. Rounding out the package, and an exclusive to the download, is Food collaborator 2econd Class Citizen's near ambient reworking of "The Illectrik Hoax" which was debuted at DJ Food's launch party in the London Planetarium earlier this year. This mix couldn't be further from AA's vision as he slows it down and gives it an almost folk-like edge.
