Simon Bookish – Terry Riley Disco (CD Review)

Like some kind of musical superhero Leo Chadburn spends his days as a librarian (where he is presumably mild mannered) but by night his alter ego flourishes and he becomes electro star Simon Bookish.

There are several remixes available; Capitol K both warps the sounds the beats and adds Avalanches like samples throughout. Fashion Flo beef up the beats nicely for the dancefloor while Max Tundra takes apart the track and reassembles it in a fractious form.
