|1.||"Elysian Fields" (Felix Dickinson remix)|
Named after a particularly aggressive snake, Machete Savane is the production project of engineer Saul Richards and Andy Bainbridge, one of the brains behind Bad Passion Project, the collective responsible for the excellent Bad Passion parties in and around East London. Machete Savane's music finds a perfect home in the Redux Records imprint that resurfaced in style last month with that Grand Corporation 12" after some concerted hibernation. Lead track "Elysian Fields" perfectly distils the Bad Passion musical ethos into one track, with dewy eyed Balearic guitar riffing gently with glowering synth lines and huge sounding drum programming. Bad Passion resident Felix Dickinson steps up to remix the track on the flip, transforming "Elysian Fields" into deep acid disco dub territory, while "Mid Op" shows Machete Savane to be equally adept at growling drum machine work outs.
