Minimal Wave offshoot Cititrax present this compelling addendum release to Immaterial Visions, the excellent LP from rising leather clad duo The KVB. An illustrious cast of producers have been invited to remix tracks from the album, with Jealous God/DNS pair Regis and Silent Servant joined by Minimal Wave act In Aeternam Vale and Avian duo Shifted and Ventress - the latter as Worn. Regis remixes "Dayzed" which is clearly a favourite of the Downwards icon, having previously selected the track for inclusion on last year's So Click Heels compilation; in O'Connor's hands the song is given a fizzing revision that relegates all sonic elements deep beneath the swaggering bass riff. Mere remnants of The KVB remain intact on Shifted's remix of "I Only See The Lights" as the intensity of feedback is transformed into a taut, minimalist growl, whilst Silent Servant offers a subtle smudged cold wave remix of "Pray To The Light Machine". Despite their massive discography, In Aeternam Vale are unknown quantities to many outside MW/Cititrax enthusiasts but the Lyon act are in fine form with their stomping take on "Lines" whilst Ventress debuts the Worn project with a swampy reverb-laden sinister cosmiche recast of "Old Life".
