Battles: “Inchworm (Silent Servant Remix – Edit)” (Dross Glop, 2012 Warp)

Juan Mendez’s reworking of Battles’ “Inchworm” from their 2011 album Gloss Drop only skims the original for inspiration. Instead of the angular jaunt of the original, Silent Servant’s take is minimal techno with keen attention to details in the effects and mix, with a wall of delay and reverb that suggests traces of the original in a completely new context.
