words by Brigitte Kiepert
Straight from the LA beat scene, Thomas Wilson otherwise known as Take, released his latest project of some seriously crafted remixes in 2010. Layered with deep basslines, synths and melodic rifts, Take has outdone himself on the recent Only Mountain: The Remixes (AlphaPup Records). With a goal to make music to evoke emotion and make the point that life is a beautiful mess, any listener’s expectations of a well-produced and well thought out album will be met. Check out the track “Horizontal Figuration” (TOKiMONSTA remix), above, and enjoy the beats that build, break and curve. And please, no headphones when listening to this album; the louder you can turn it up, the better.
