Len Faki's Robot Evolution Remixes is a special treat, rallying up some top-notch producers from Figure's extended circle. In a massive remix package, these artists have compiled singular takes on Faki's "Robot Evolution" from the label's recent anniversary compilation Figure 100 (FIGURE 100LP, 2018). Benjamin Damage manages to mine the original track for its raw essence, harnessing a rough and lively -- yet streamlined -- high-energy track. The clever rework by Charlotte de Witte shows off her deeper side, providing a submerged feel while not losing focus on the floor, sprinkling in the acid stab for good measure. Emika's creative interpretation pairs her bread and butter (pulsing sub-bass and battering grime-style syntharps) with a completely new vocal dub. Her fresh fusion of genre-specific tropes serves as a delightful surprise and is one to make heads turn. Jensen Interceptor turns in exactly the kind of fast-moving, tightly grooving, no-nonsense electro that one has come to expect from the prolific producer, straight up and honest, a true Drexciyan descendant. Galloping and hopping, it's the Midnight Operator-remix that races along at breakneck speed yet luckily offers some great breakdown moments to catch one's breath before hammering it home on this stuttering full-throttle ride. Creativity abounds, and this package proves a worthy successor to the original track, and has helped the robot evolve all of its model's specific features.
