Rhythm, Sound and Movement is a collection of remixes of tracks from Pitch Blacks Rude Mechanicals album, which, reflecting the duos wide ranging tastes and styles, encompasses nearly every genre of electronica and dance music there is.The compilation kicks off with two heavily dubwise numbers from former Thomspon Twin, International Observer, and Melbournes deadly duo, Deep Fried Dub. Englands Mistrust adds breaks to the mix, which Fold and Horace then throw into the blender with their dubstep meets drumnbass reduction of Bird Soul.Subtone gets us back on track with his techstep mix of taut beats and restrained funk, and Heavyweight Dub Champions Patchs bass laden beats prepare the ground nicely for psy star Bluetechs electro dub version of South of the Line. Neon Stereo takes us out onto the dancefloor with some tight tech house grooves and Johhny Hooves keeps us there by dropping Bukem style atmospheric drumnbass.Kerretta blow the whole thing out of the water with an amazingly indescribable remix – labels like post rock and shoegaze dont do them any justice at all, while sublime, stunning and cinematic possibly do. Poker Flats Simon Flower carries on this blissful theme with his floating remix, while Robs is more akin to drowning!Thankfully Groove Yantra saves us from the murky depths with their upbeat world beats, and Friends Electric send us back into orbit, blending pulsating beats with a growling bassline.All in all, a worthy addition to the Pitch Black cannon, similar to their previous remix collection, Frequencies Fall, in its eclectic ness, with some tracks made for the dancefloor, some for the living room, and some for the bedroom ;-) Rhythm, Sound and Movement indeed
