Jump Over Barrels

Dark Entries
Formed in the late '70s, Crash Course In Science’s music still sounds highly relevant. Not only did it have an impact on LCD Soundsystem — as the tortured wails and scratchy guitars of ‘Barrels’ demonstrate — the group’s metronome drum patterns and lo-fi production aesthetic continue to influence modern techno and house producers. To accompany the reissue of ‘Barrels’, Dark Entries has wisely chosen Tadd Mullinix, aka JTC/Charles Manier, to rework the track. Centred on a swinging metallic rhythm and ghostly filter, the US producer brings a functional sheen to the act’s primal, electronic arranging.
