'Gravity Remixes EP'
Crewdson is Hugh Jones, a musician and producer who, following his first two releases last year, has been hailed as one to watch amongst his ‘post-dubstep’ peers, “…blowing Jazz and glitch into the vessels sails”. ‘Dust EP’ and the full length ‘Gravity’ drew huge acclaim from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Clash, XLR8R, Time-Out, BBC, Future Sequence, Electronic Beats & The FADER.
He has recently remixed for Deco Child [Ninja], Finn Peters, Bambooman and Snorkel. Aside from his solo work he is also a current member of Mathew Herbert’s ‘One Pig’ band, drummer Tom Skinner’s hotly tipped project Hello Skinny and electronic jazz outfit Saltwater Samurai.
Gravity Remixes EP is a collection of remixes of material from the album. To start proceedings Crewdson has casually pulled a brand new, punchy, vocal led tune entitled ‘Bent Measure’ out of his back pocket. Follow that, producers…
And so on remixing duty we have…..
London’s very own afro-kraut experimentation unit Snorkel take on the beatific minimalism of ‘Cascade’ and turn it into a Battles-like stomper, complete with bonus trombones. Rising star Alphabets Heaven tackles the wonderfully skittish ‘Dust Crawlers’, turning it into a soulful post-hip-hop number. Tom Skinner, aka Hello Skinny, now of the Slowfoot parish, deconstructs ‘Electric Wing’ – previously a big-beat-meets-sax-solo monster – into the intro theme for an Amiga game that never was. Bambooman brings a bit of his trademark late night dust and intimate chill to an appreciated party - ‘Trapdoor’. Meanwhile Chester’s Real brings his punchy, soulful take on UK garage to Crewdson’s own punchy, soulful take on UK garage.
"… a wonderful achievement. Crewdson is moving bass music beyond its post-dubstep moniker." [Clash]
"A fine gambit where potential is boomingly declared beside excellent right-now work. " [BBC]
