London-based DJ and producer Jay Duncan collaborates with saxophonist Ben Vince on her debut release for Phantasy, introducing two compositions alongside a remix from Ricardo Villalobos.
Opening track “In Limbo” exists on it’s own terms with Vince’s virtuoso playing, a feature of former collaborations with the likes of Joy Orbison and Mica Levi, is here gradually manipulated by Duncan into a hugely ambitious trip. Duncan raises the tension for the title track’s more percussive sibling ‘Anti-Purgatorio’, drawing out almost impossibly taut and inventive rhythms constructed around wormholes from which spill Vince’s instrumentation, washed downstream amid slippery modulations and a distinctive analogue atmosphere.
Ricardo Villalobos adds to his own superlative history of remixes with a characteristically trippy take on ‘In Limbo’. Spanning nearly fifteen-minutes, the legendary Chilean-German innovator subtly reimaginines this ambitious record in form true to both his own musical heritage as well as Duncan’s futurism.
‘In Limbo’ is out now and available to purchase on Bandcamp.
