Wizzy Noise – Timeline Remixes (Candy Flip)

Posted in Reviews 2004 by - April 21, 2004



Keeping baited breath till the new album comes out (attention spun records: i am now in australia. send me cd’s. message ends), we manage to stay sane with this five-tracker of remixes of Timeline, one of the standout’s from last year’s high-watermark Electro Theater album. Vibrasphere cuts in first, and er… well, it sounds like vibrasphere. Floaty, layered, ticklish, is brings to the forefront the proggy edge that was always in Wizzy’s sound. It’s cute, and the chunky acidic nosedive at the end is particularly mouthwatering. Neologic’s take is messier, almost more like the Wizzy Noise of Cyclotron with the mechanoid paranoia winning the scuffle against the loose, shakey groove. Wizzy’s own remix has bags of presence right from the start — tribal touches, bags of extra potent wi zzy power (TM), it’s firing on all cylinders kinda stuff. Charismatix always sounds to psyreviews like gnarled trees and springy english forest floor… and the style works well with Wizzy’s sound. Top of the tree though is Blue Planet Corp’s remix, an utterly improbable yet staggeringly beautiful remix that sounds more like its own tune than any kind of rework. Blue Planet’s crystalline sounds sit perfectly over Wizzy’s baggy-jeans groove, and closes the EP off nicely. Not bad stuff at all then, and it keeps us going till we can get our sweaty, freeloading mitts on the new album.
