Buffablog.com stated a „highly earpleasing outcome“. That was the last time. Last time Charles Bordeaux put out his Fables EP, this New York-State resident shocked musiclovers around the world with his lush and groovy candies. Now, the hit on Fables gets its well-deserved special treatment: Blood Pacts, now being resurrected by its second name Weeds.
In there, a farmer meets a man who offers him land. The Farmer takes on more than he can handle, and buys unfarmable land, wasting money & time. Oh, would he rather appreciate what he already has! The drama of will and loss is told in the Bordeaux way, by means of an ultimately happy psychedelic soul music: heavenly choirs, chilled out beats.
Emerald & Doreen-artist Copycat cuts a jacking bassline to the original and takes it to the freaky funky disco floors. Tronik Youth select icy bleeps and e-drums to let the piece jump up on high plateau soles. Chromatic Dream let a sub-bass wander through their majestic landscape, all shook in slow motion. Finally, Deluce re-invents Weeds as a powered-up electro funk fantasy with massive claps. A well-deserved bouquet of interpretations of a stunning piece of music.
