MASERATI – inventions remixes – VINYL LP (black)VINYL LP (black)temporary residence limited2008
Inventions Remixes begins with Thee Loving Hand (Tim Goldsworthy of The DFA, Hercules and Love Affair) stripping « The World Outside » to almost nothing, rebuilding it as a vintage European disco track from the ground up. Starting with a steady, far-off kick drum and a rogue, in-your-face hi hat, the song’s seemingly disparate parts eventually lock into the kind of dirty disco that has made Goldsworthy a club legend. Equally club-friendly, !!!’s Justin Van Der Volgen brushes away the grit of the original « Inventions » and painstakingly buffs it to a shine as slick as black ice. The side-long trance mix maintains the sweaty atmosphere of the original, but removes the top-down drive in favor of a midnight jog. Strictly limited to a one-time pressing of 1,000 copies, Inventions Remixes is both an addendum to the successful reboot of Inventions For The New Season, as well as a testament to the broad spectrum of influences that flow in and out of Maserati’s music.
