Dilankex is a work of opposites – two versions of the same multiple events – a black and white release.
Oberman Knock’s original version (white) is a laid-back affair housed within a glassy place of worship, echoing with monastic vocals, strings, wind instruments and field recordings, which are offset by synthetic beats, funk bass and entwined sleazy vocals.
In contrast Autechre’s remix (black), panning out at just over 17 minutes long, is everything that you’d expect from the duo – a frantic, fractured and detailed to within an inch of it’s life piece, that has no need to build, but instead unravels and mutates into what is an unmistakable Autechre crescendo.
Whilst both versions play out at opposite ends of the tempo spectrum, what connects both is that they are emotional machine music with guts and vigour.
Released as a limited edition of 500 vinyl copies in special die-cut sleeves. Also released digitally.
