To Repel Ghosts feat. remixes by George Fitzgerald // Stray // Troy Gunner
“A down-tempo dance record full of recollections of places and sounds… and as such it has a similar quality of evocative electronica to Boards of Canada.”
The Guardian on The Keychain Collection
With his debut album The Keychain Collection and a raft of props firmly under his belt, Gang Colours returns to the fray with the awesome To Repel Ghosts and a trilogy of killer remixes called in from our extended family.
Original Brownswood electr*c alumnus George Fitzgerald’s career has blossomed under the watchful eye of Hot Flush Records boss Scuba and his deep, groove-ridden productions have also caught the ear of Will Saul (Aus Music). Flourishing in the spaces in between house, garage, dubstep and techno, his music reflects the magic of the ever-evolving UK bass continuum. Deftly twisting To Repel Ghosts, he translates Gang Colours’ melancholic synthesis with iridescent pads and a tumbling synth line that push it squarely onto the dancefloor.
One of the D&B movement’s brightest prospects, Stray has been releasing his music on one of the scene’s most forward-thinking imprints – Critical Recordings – and also blessed Brownswood electr*c 2. Reviving the spirit of freedom, experimentation and innovation that characterised the golden years of Metalheadz during the 90s, Stray has hit a rich vein of form, recently collaborating with Sabre, Halogenix and Frank Carter III on the masterful ‘Oblique’, hailed by Goldie as “a ‘waypoint’ of the times.” His rework for Gang Colours is similarly sublime – warm 808s neatly underpinning disheveled, skittering breakbeats that evoke the same rhythmic cadences purveyed by Chicago’s footwork maestros Traxman, Rashad and Spinn, whilst subtly and sensitively reworking Gang Colours’s original melody lines.
