Pollux - Crucial (2011)

/Drum and bass, Illbient, Conceptual, Dystopbient, Avant-industrial, Big beat, Remixes, Avant-garde/

Comment: This 4-pieced remix album comes from France. Here are remixed Godspeed You! Black Emperor`s The Dead Flag Blues - showcasing it as an instance to be adrift on a vista of industrial-filled dystopic ambient/illbient. Moonengineer`s All In Your Hands starts out with slightly diffusive big beat pounding and solemn church organs running this way off into the next one. Indeed, Boards Of Canada`s Corsair gets a drum and bass (actually dream and bass)-dominated coat wrapped in a little more amplified solemnity. µ-ziq`s Fall Of Antioch continues principially in similar vein, yet getting designed through more tense, rumbling rhythmic sequences.
