Second volume of "Bleeding Hearts", the two remix 12" companion to Cdatakill's "Valentine" album. (Get this on 12" / as mp3)
The first vinyl releases by Zak Roberts (Cdatakill) since 2003’s "Southeast Aurora Syndrome" (on the Australian Hardline Rekordingz label), the two volumes of "Bleeding Hearts" act not only as an extension of "Valentine", whose tracks get remixed over nine new versions, but also as a family and friends meeting.
DJ Hidden kicks off the second record with his trademark high-fidelity, percussive and dark blend of drum’n’bass, followed by Cakebuilder, who remixes the same “No Brakes” in a very direct, club-friendly mad stomper. In contrast, Non Non (Lapsed’s new partner in crime) offers a much slower, ever changing and gritty remix of “Hungry”, while Larvae’s personal mixture of shoegaze guitar drones and downbeat sticks to the original tempo of “Mingi”, yet provides it with a dreamy, emotional lightness.
More of an homage to Cdatakill’s massive, dub-brewed breaks than a confrontation of genres, "Bleeding Hearts" acts as a new confirmation of this long running act’s influence on the current breakcore, drum’n’bass and industrial scenes, and result in a diverse, hand-picked selection of remixes from Cdatakill’s friends and collaborators.
