Normally an outlet for label chief Subjected and his two conspirators Mørbeck and Sawlin only, Vault Series next breaks its exclusivity with a new offshoot: the Vault Remix Series. For the first edition, the underground imprint—famed for its idiosyncratic blend of raw industrial sounds, shadowy timbres and punishing basslines—taps three contemporary peers for reworks of Subjected’s menacing “005.7”.
On the A-side, Mote-Evoler mainstay Shifted turns in a poised and powerful “Reduction” mix, cleaning off “005.7”’s original rust and clatter to deliver a more sleek and well-oiled machine. Next up Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer turn their Tuff City Kids guise on “005.7”, steering it’s steely hydraulics and caustic edge into warmer house climes with plush chords and crashes.
On the B-side Modularz man Developer brings in his own haunted melody to the table, plied to a cantering beat to utterly transform “005.7” once more. The package closes with Vault Series member Mørbeck taking things right back to their dark and brooding origins. Slashes of synths add a sci-fi edge, matched with those grainy textures and scopey kicks that have come to define the trio’s output on Vault so far.
