"Necronomicon" also kicks off Homesick's remix package, this time as a sleek dance floor collaboration with Vin Sol. There's nothing sluggish or sleepy about the new version. Like a more frantic reiteration of their other track together, "HMU (Hit Me Up)," it's teeming with the bleeps and blips of hyperactive computer processing.
Instance ramps up the dreamy "Earth Like Conditions" to make something a bit more iridescent, melodious and housey, while Mike Parker gets wonderfully trippy and spacey with his take on "Opium Den." It'll likely be Larry Heard's trio of Gherkin Jerks remixes that pique the most interest here. Their variations are subtle. All are fairly taut and punchy, with each one brandishing a unique breakdown around the three-minute mark. They sound like eerie trance, and in the best possible way.
