Remix Series #3 / **K – Phenomenon
Part 3 in Cage & Aviary’s 12″ remix series sees the duo tackle “Phenomenon” by K, aka Mark Wagner, a man who doesn’t really give a 2-star-K. Starting producing in 2005 with a recording policy of using all ‘real’ and analogue instruments with no edits and few overdubs, he delivers an anything-goes philosophy that references an array of styles from early electronica, drone, doom, techno and folk and psychedelic music. On “Phenomenon” he revives Liquid Liquid’s punk-funk classic “Cavern”, which in turn is twisted into a slo-mo Balearic acid house chugger by the men at C&A. The flipside is even gives a nod to “Voodoo Ray” (to these ears anyway!). Something like a phenomenon indeed. Just tell your body to get along, OK!
