As mentioned last week, The Asphodells new album - a Andrew Weatherall & Timothy Fairplay partnership - is now out & about. The mix by Weatherall below will give you an idea of what you're in for. For my money, Weatherall is the only producer/DJ out there today who, almost effortlessly, bridges the gap between the old(er) and the new, and puts it into a perspective that I'm willing to buy. Bonus points for the Human League inclusion.
As The Quietus says in a recent review of the album, "The success of Ruled By Passion Destroyed By Lust lies in a number of differing factors that add up to one almighty whole. Weatherall's ability to cherry-pick any number of wildly differing influences without relying on any one in particular is remarkable in itself but the fact that he and Fairplay consistently come up with something that's their own is a talent to be lauded."
