With her single “A Matter Of Time” Dillon sent out a wonderfully fragile prelude to her second album “The Unknown” on Bpitch Control. For the remix EP Dillon has allowed four genuine masters of their trade to lay hands on the original: Marcel Dettmann, Anstam, Planningtorock and Monokle. Janine Rostron, aka Planningtorock, manipulates Dillon’s voice in a similar way to her own productions, giving
it an almost genderless breadth. The interplay with retro-sounding percussion and accentuated bass sounds gives rise to an extremely versatile anthem. While Berghain resident Marcel Dettmann initially extends Dillon’s vocals, the industrial slipstream provides a space for a loop monster à la Dettmann – raw, primal and dirty. Although his positively ghostly sounds dominate his “A Matter Of Time” remix, the piano chords in the epilogue bring the original to mind again. Anstam, from Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons family, applies his trademark sound design to his interpretation, lending Dillon’s voice an almost reverent glow among the hectic light of IDM abstractions, organ pathos and experimental leftfield verve. The Russian producer Monokle begins his remix as an ambient piece, before the fat breakbeats transform the original into a pumping track where dreamlike synths and a deeper bassline concuct a glittering hybrid.
