Few of techno's names are as feted-- and rightly so-- as Basic Channel. The Berlin duo Mark Ernestus and Moritz Von Oswald and its eponymous label were among the earliest German outfits to interface with Detroit techno's first generation; its fame came from steadily whittling down house and techno to unprecedented degrees of minimalism while making explicit the links between techno and dub reggae. Each effort features vocal performances from singers like Paul St.
Hilaire aka Tikiman , Cornel Campbell, and the Chosen Brothers, who croon and mutter, alternatingly devotional and simply stoned, as though dancehall and gun talk never happened. It is, without a doubt, a kind of purist's music, approaching every cut as though trying to fashion, once and for all, the Ideal Dub Side; it's also all pretty great, and occasionally exquisite. But the sheer volume of the stuff, every record a version of a version of a variation, can feel like a glut.
Instead, See Mi Yah Remixes , featuring reworks of a number of tracks originally released on 7" in and later compiled as See Mi Yah , is deliciously eccentric: At once an homage to Basic Channel's dubwise legacy and a repudiation of reflexive brow-furrowing, it's also, in part, a welcome return to the dance floor. Unsurprisingly, the most predictable versions come from within the Basic Channel camp itself-- although in no way should "predictable" be read pejoratively.
Vainqueur, one of Basic Channel sublabel Chain Reaction's best artists, breaks a half-decade's silence with the blissful lapping of digital whitecaps laid over a pulse so steady it seems to come from the earth's core itself-- in other words, exactly what he's always done, and praise Jah for it. Chain Reaction artists Substance and Hallucinator-- both also mostly inactive for years-- and Basic Channel themselves offer more traditionally reggaefied versions; all ping and crackle and gently sloping skank, this is reggae from an ambient junkie's perspective, the sound of stretching out and wrapping yourself in a cocoon of filtered delay.
