Star-studded doesn't even begin to describe the laundry list of hot acts lining the halls of OPIUO's latest remix album. Meraki Remixed claims contributions from KOAN Sound, Mr. Bill, Spoonbill, griff, The Funk Hunters and so many of the biggest acts in glitch-hop, future funk, and left-field production you'd want to take on originals from the New Zealand legend.
The opening track on the remix album comes from none other than longtime OPIUO collaborator Russ Liquid. One of the key figures in bringing Oscar Davey-Wraight's live band to life, Russ tackles "On Your Side," by bringing his Lowtemp influences into the picture. Smooth as silk, and ultra sexy, there's a horn-y R&B vibe that pervades the cut, and drips with sensuality through the psychedelic detours. Couldn't pick a better introduction into the wild reimaginings that run through Meraki Remixed.
