After Serialism’s release of Quenum’s ‘Face To Face’ last year, things have been on the up and up for the distinguished gentleman, who currently resides in Switzerland. Now the richly textured and atmospheric EP is getting a striking remix package featuring three distinct voices in electronic music. One of whom is Mathew Jonson, who has created a mind-bending journey out of the original.
Philippe Quenum is an extraordinary artist with longevity in the game. DJing since the early 80s and living in London throughout the 90s, Quenum first made an impact as part of Access 58, founded in 1996 (with Paulo Nascimento) before moving to Geneva and setting up Num Records in 2005, then the pioneering Cadenza with Luciano. A considerable stream of standout releases as Quenum have followed on Cadenza and other labels including Contexterrior, Crosstown Rebels, Orac, Trapez and of course Serialism.
Mathew Jonson is one of the most respected names in the game with past releases on M_NUS, Perlon, Crosstown Rebels and his own Wagon Repair label. Along with his Cobblestone Jazz outfit (an improvised live 3 piece collaboration techno project) and the extended four-piece, the Modern Deep Left Quartet, Jonson is the real deal according to many in the scene. Press play and listen to what Mathew has been cooking up in his lab..
‘Face To Face Remixed’ will be released on May 27th
