Slack Time Rmxs
Here come the remixes of "Slack Time," one of the numerous hits on Judith Juillerat's debut album
, released on Shitkatapult. With its paradoxical casualness the listener becomes irresistibly attracted to the intimate moments: melodies composed with little bugs, a mature composure in tempo, and intertwining free flow. The remixes come from French funk master

Track by track, she puts her songs and soundscapes together using a multi-track recorder. Whether this kind of old school production technique can be understood as the reason for the maturity of her music remains to be seen.
