Cyclic Bits: The Raymond Scott Variations (2010)
/Experimental electronica, Remixes, Avant-electronica, Exotica pop, Space age pop, Sampledelic/
Comment: a host of nowadays innovative electronic musicians are remixing the tracks of a legendary cutting edge electronic musician (who can be compared with Desmond Leslie, Bebe & Loius Barron, Mort Garson, Bruce Haack, and Delia Derbyshire). Here are represented Satanicpornocultshop, Tracky Birthday, Fireworks Ensemble, Ego Plum, DJPE, Orionza, Vernon Lenoir, Felix Kubin and other ones. All in all, the remixes of the musicians ring out really exotic and intricate, having an irresistible smell of the first decades after World War II. More detailly, all those proto-synths, tape manipulations, pitch bending, rough bits and analogue sound make highly sense.
