Premiere: JD Twitch – Dalbouka

Over a month ago was released the excellent ‘Screaming Ghosts‘, a compilation spanning a wide segment of the discography of John Rees Lewis’ band C Cat Trance, founded in the wake of his departure from Nottingham’s new wave act Medium Medium and active from 1983 to 1988.

To complement this carefully-curated collection of sounds picked from both C Cat Trance’s full-lengths and EPs, Emotional Rescue and Malka Tuti decided to hand the reins over to a high-flying cast of kin remixers over two distinct 12″s, out respectively on 17th and 31st November.

For the occasion Disco Halal affiliate Autarkic, Dresden-based edit-slinger Sneaker, Optimo’s very own JD Twitch and Berlin duo Die Orangen take helm of the first volume whilst the second edition sees Tel Aviv’s Red Axes join forces with Cage & Aviary’s Jamie Paton, Scandinavian disco house don Prins Thomas and last but not least, Bucharest’s finest Khidja.

Our pick comes courtesy of Sub Club legend JD Twitch, found here beefing up the originally slower yet equally perc-ridden ‘Dalbouka‘ and turning it into proper club-oriented artillery. Without altering the raw spell of C Cat Trance’s live-recorded arrhythmic drums, the Glaswegian manipulator tweaks the right buttons with the right effect, adjusting it to dancefloor usage neatly. Kick-start your camel, turn on your walkman and get ready to slice through the sandy winds fearlessly.

C Cat Trance – Remixes Vol. 1 is released via Emotional Rescue and Malka Tuti on 17th November, pre-order a copy from Juno.
