The new Speedy J EP is bound to cause a buzz across many dance floors, getting play from DJs all over the map. His Out Of Focus Dub is a collage of mellow, dense soundscapes, dubbed out percussion with an extra injection of techno ammunition providing just the right amount of energy assumption one requires to send crowds in a stone cold haze. Crawling with uncertain menace, the circular and intangible drive with overwhelming bass power reminds of that Armstrong track of his. But Shoegaze is pulled of better in my opinion. The elemental assets are pushed to the forefront, guaranteeing many heads nods and feet taps, while the haunting background is packed with crispy hisses, gyratory hooks and thick, warm sound waves unleashing palettes of cozy and trippy sounds, reverbs and what details not, all of which makes me listen to it with my windows wide open to avoid excessive endothermic reactions. Trust me, the original version is an aural bulwark like few others recorded and heard in 2001.

Out of the remaining three mixes, it is only the Edit Select Dub which earned its place on the 12". Faster, tougher, louder, yet way more polished. It lacks the three dimensional luxury of the previous number, but is still bound to set masses in motion. Moving in a more conventional techno field, Edit Select takes Speedy J's acoustic prudence and inflates it with tighter beats, maintaining the overall somnambulistic feel of its predecessor, but increasing the horse power. Depending on what you're after, and what time of the night it is, each of the two version has its charms, and plenty reasons why one should take them out of the case.
Speedy J makes it more dreamy and mechanically symphonic, while Edit Select opts for a more true to form approach.

As hard as it may be for me to say it, the other two digital versions are actually good enough to compete with the vinyl versions. Speedy J's tool is a more bass painted and spacey version of the Edit Select Dub, and clocking in at almost eleven minutes, it is a dream come true combo of Speedy J's undeniable talent: vibrant sonic marches complimented and guided through tonal paths of pleasant layers scuba diving throughout.
Edit Select then revisits his Dub, and builds via an ambient layer for approximately two minutes before breaking into a full blown four on the floor thud - plump and plain. Doesn't differ that much from his previous offering here, although its length makes it more suitable for inducing trance like moods on the floor.

Well, what do you know? I cannot really recall the entire Electric Deluxe roster and catalog, but I cannot remember when was the last time that a release of their struck me as much as this one either. Techno, and very good too, yet two solar systems away from the stuff you hear regularly during weekends these days, and the will to drift away from common denominator electronics is well palpable on Shoegaze. I had my doubts about Speedy J in recent times, as I found some of his remixes and reworked version of other people's tunes quite dull, or nothing more than adequate tools, but this proves me wrong - fortunately. Get it!
