City of Glass LV Remix / Window Seat Will Ward (Circle Traps) Remix
Portico Quartet, 2012
Portico Quartet's second single from their recently released self-titled album, features mixes of two standout tracks, with close associate Will Ward (of Portico Quartet side project Circle Traps) reworking the enigmatic Window Seat and the renowned remixers and Hyperdub recording artists LV (who also remixed the band?s breakthrough track Cittagazze back in 2008) bringing their very own brand of dance floor magic to the anthemic City Of Glass.
"Effortlessly minimal?achingly haunting and beautiful? Groundbreaking? Stunning." 19/20 (Crack Magazine)
"...soundscapes run the gamut from ECM-ish ambient to the heavy-duty electronica of Aphex Twin or Flying Lotus" (Uncut)
- ...it is a pleasure to hear such sonic delights coming into the world. ...this is a perfect companion to the original with squeaky clean beats enhancing the originals atmospheric grace to great effect. ...melancholic edge...playful fizzes and beeps. The Will Ward (of Circle Traps) remix of Window Seat...an icy chill...that makes the haunting original even more appreciated. If you enjoyed their latest self-titled album then this must surely be a logical next step. Seba Rashi
