Immediate Action #8
Telefon Tel Aviv: Immediate Action #8 (November 2002) This 4 track EP includes 2 exclusive compositions by Telefon Tel Aviv, along with 2 superb remixes by Prefuse 73 and Slicker. Source material for the remixes was taken from Telefon’s top selling album, Fahrenheit Fair Enough, yet all music on this EP is exclusive to this release. ‘Sound In a Dark Room’ features vocals on a Telefon tune for the first time ever, with a guest appearance by Lindsay Anderson (member of L'Altra and Pulseprogramming, both of Chicago's Aesthetics label). Lindsay's collaboration here finds TTA delivering one of their best compositions to date, a slow and sultry burner... a perfect fusion of deep, dubbed out, electronic soul, an almost R&B groove, an intoxicating vocal, and a sexy Rhodes line that is simply irresistible. Slicker revisit the second cut from the album "TTV" and come fully correct, with fattest mid tempo beats, and double speed drums to further align the project with the flavour of melodic, almost jiggy, electronica. Scott Herren's bonus beats sit perfectly with his body of work so far, chunking up the original into more hip-hop fuelled nuggets of quality. Immediate and very, very good. Only 700 copies exist of the original CD.
