Riding the success of their brilliant debut full-length Bring Out The Imps, IMPS return with a collection of exclusive remixes from their favorite artists making electronic music today. For the uninitiated, IMPS are the collaboration between super-duo Swedish producers Sebastian Mullaert and Marcus Henriksson aka Minilogue (of Cocoon, Traum, Crosstown Rebels and Wagon Repair fame) and Decay, the Australian multi-instrumentalist duo of Ian Chaplin and Philip Rex. Together they came up with one of 2008's most innovative albums which earned global critical praise. To categorize IMPS would be blasphemous; however, Popmatter effectively reviewed their album as being "slowed-down techno grooves provid(ing) a firm, dubby foundation for blissful Rhodes melodies and earthy double bass." Simply titled Remixed, this collection brings together a group of today's most influential electronic music producers, joined together by the beautiful musicianship of Bring Out The Imps. Legendary producer Thomas Fehlmann hits things off with a re-edit, hitting all the right buttons with a psychedelic depth that is reminiscent of his work with The Orb. Strategy (Community Library, Orac, Dreck) take a very jazzy, downtempo approach on "Get A Grip," and Move D -- one of today's most buzzed-about house producers -- keeps his reputation for impeccable, loop-drenched groove by bumping up the BPM a bit and adding a scent of Detroit's deep-house vibe. Isolée makes a rare appearance in his signature swinging flow with a playfully rhythmic remix. Jan Jelinek is a man of mood and atmospheric grace, creating a highlight remix reminiscent of the work from Gas, which eases and builds along in delightful loops of saxophone and a thudding undertone which gives an organic breath to the music. Japan's deep-house leader Kuniyuki under the guise of Koss follows with a gorgeous remix that sways between pop-ambient melancholy and trippy heroin-house. Finally, IMPS members Minilogue take their own jab at remix duty, pulling together yet another epic tech-house anthem to add to their already long-adored collection of dancefloor raisers.
