Angela Lewis on pop
Friday 30 August 1996
The latest remixers let loose on Tortoise are diverse talents Jim O'Rourke, Bedouin Ascent and Spring Heel Jack, the latter's drum 'n' bass soundscape being particularly fine. "When I first heard jungle, it seemed to me like this centrepoint for hip hop, techno and dancehall, a place for them all to meet," reflects Herndon. "The remixes are something everyone is interested in. It's fascinating to see what happens when you give someone raw material and see how they interpret it, dismantle your music and rebuild it. My favourite remixes have been by Luke Vibert and O'Rourke. I would love to remix a Wu Tang Clan track. They have the freshest beats."
Joining Tortoise for their final British date of 1996 are the Bristolian eccentrics, Flying Saucer Attack, and the cool, elegant trance popsters Snowpony.
