REMOTIF – IN THE BLINK OF A COMSIC EYE EP
Released on X-Kalay, July 21, 2023 > catalogue: XK030
REMOTIF is the moniker of Joe Reddick, the Bristol based DJ / producer, who through his other-worldly productions finds his eastward journey full sails ahead. He is no stranger to Asia with gigs earlier this year at ‘Seltsam’ in the Philippines and ‘Decommune’ in Thailand. Hopefully the shores of Japan lay only a few moons away.
REMOTIF is not only found performing in Bristol and London, but also around Europe for open-air psychedelic festivals such as ‘Refractor’ in Spain and weekend marathon raves like ‘5y Warning’ in Berlin.
With his EP release ‘In the Blink of a Cosmic Eye‘ we pray to Kami-sama that he’ll no longer be a stranger to Japan. This pure bliss EP with intelligent dark trance and prog house euphoria releases on July 21st and is cosmically timed for the festival season worldwide.
The title of the EP is inspired by a tweet from Eris Drew that resonated with REMOTIF:
‘Every person we encounter is a little universe. As it goes, we will all be dead in the blink of a cosmic eye. I am not being morbid. That’s just real. For better or worse, this is your time. Don’t wait to be, become or live. Don’t wait to do what you need to do in this world’.@ErisDrew – Twitter
To REMOTIF these are words to live by. He hopes the EP captures some of that ephemeral zest for life and love that a unified dance floor can provide.
‘In the Blink of a Cosmic Eye‘ is x-kalay’s 30th release from the label, catalogue XK030, complete with a digital-only remix from Youandewan on Bandcamp.
The first half finds the Bristol mainstay at his deadliest. Harnessing pure proggy momentum, peak-time scorcher ‘In the Blink of a Cosmic Eye’ comes hurtling out the tracks. Take a dose of the 1st of 5 preview tracks above.
‘It’s Inside U’ then keeps pace with more of that driving, fractal pressure. Tunnelling wormhole torque straight out the nether-realm. Take another dose of the 2nd of 5 preview tracks just above.
Comparatively restrained but no-less mind-altering, the B-side embarks on a full-blown vision quest with full length YouTube videos below:
Where breaks-fuelled cut ‘For Love or Money’ nods to early ‘90s bleep, ‘3AM in the Möbius Strip Club’ ushers into a chugging, ritual-ready space. Proper third-eye dilating stuff.
This EP has a little bit of everything from trippy dark forest goblin trance to uplifting prog euphoria to sub-heavy Detroit inspired 808 whomp to delicate, piano-laden downtempo chug to a sick, groove heavy reinterpretation by Youandewan.
After every passing moon we await REMOTIF in the Land of the Rising Sun.
