Critical Mass

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of witnessing A Critical Mass, the brand new live show put together by Innervisions crew, Ame, Henrik Schwarz and Dixon. Secret Sundaze promotors Giles Smith and James Priestley had brought them over as part of their showcase promoting "The Grandfather Paradox", a new mix that covers the story of minimalist music from past present and future. "The Grandfather Paradox", after all, is the idea that a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his own grandfather couldn't logically do so, because without the grandfather there is no time traveler.

The show itself as you would expect was superb with the group mixing up all their individual hits into one complete whole and providing the sort of uplifting atmosphere which is lacking in todays po-faced minimal House and Techno scenes.

Another reason for me to check out this trio was upon hearing a brilliant remix by Henrik Schwarz of the seventies Funk and Soul singer Bill Withers. 'Who Is He' has been transformed by Schwarz into an amazingly funky minimal house number with Bill Withers' smooth vocal stylings telling tales of a jealous lover suspecting infidelity. This a great example of when a remix is done properly then the original is elevated to something stunning. Aparently though Bill does not approve of this new interpretation of his work and this amazing track may not ever see a proper release.
