Review in Vital Weekly:
DE FABRIEK - REMIX VOLUME 9 (CD by De Fabriek Records & Tapes)

Emerging from the 1980s cassette scene De Fabriek is still releasing subversive music. Recently De Fabriek, or constant member Richard van Dellen, has been
releasing a series of 'Remix' albums. These albums are born out of the same spirit of those early cassette releases and collaboration. De Fabriek is now up the ninth instalment of the Remix series, with the latest being the strongest and most cohesive to date.
The concept is simple, van Dellen has a revolving door of friend, collaborators and conspirators who send him tracks, samples and sound material. Van Dellen then mixes it all into something that makes him smile. ‘And now for something completely different’ kicks the album off. After an ident for Nova FM, including some wayward guitar from Neil Young, and some radio patter the song gets underway with massive beats, hypnotic samples and (trip)Hip-hop vibes. It is one of my sedate tracks on the album. This gives away to ‘In Mijn Dromen Part One’ that opens with lullaby chime before a vocal sample about aliens. ‘Tomita and the Gremlins’ is one of the standout tracks. It traverses bass culture with skittering
beats, glitchy vocal samples and the aforementioned basslines. In a way, it lives up to its name as the backing synths are as exquisite as a Tomita track and all the noise in the fore could very well be some gremlins having a catch-up. It also feels like peak Squarepusher, from his 90s abrasive output. ‘RamBam’ is full of delightful percussion riffs all stuttering over each other. The results are a hypnotic cacophonous deluge. As ‘RamBam’ progresses the skittering becomes more intense it reaches a peak, before mixing into the next track.
What ‘Remix Volume 9’ does incredibly well is that it offers a continuous wonky stream of musical consciousness for 73 minutes. As the songs flow into one another you are taken on a musical journey that incorporates cut and paste, bass culture, musique concrete, rock, and sound collages. The beauty of ‘Remix Volume 9’ is that you don’t actually know who is on each track. In all fairness that doesn’t matter as the music
speaks for itself. It is everything we’ve come to expect from De Frabriek and quite possibly a little bit more too.
