"This album takes as its starting point the amazing tune 'Skåne', drawn from Andreas Tilliander's 1998 album Vena -- recorded in his Komp guise for the Komplott label, present here as the concluding track. Tilliander presides over the Scandinavian electronic scene with something approaching don status: under his own name and also as Mokira, Lowfour, Rechord and one suspects, perhaps even more guises, he has supplied some of the most forward thinking music of the last ten years. Pop influenced glitch for Mille Plateaux, cut up digital electronic hip hop for Raster Noton, deep bass heavy ambient drift for Type, each and every album occupying a distinct stance and attitude from the last. 'Skåne' is one almighty groove, skeletal synthetic drums teeter over a massive, almost hardcore influenced bassline, filled with the cabinet movements of sound system culture and the polyrhythmic qualities of techno. New Speak presents Skåne Revisited as a variant on the 'one rhythm' style album, known to bass and rhythm aficionados -- what happens here is almost entirely distinct from the linear voicings you'll find on the latest bashment releases. Instead, New Speak's hand-picked team of mixers realign the original in keeping with its inspiration, not its sound qualities."
