Reviews

Tesselate - Jan 2006
"New various artists cd on Boltfish containing 2 discs of pure remix. Disc one is a remix frenzy with all the artists remixing each others tracks and disc two is ' The camella remixes' which contains more remixes by various artists of Cheju's ' Camellia '.

The second disc is packed full of remixes made by winners of a competition held by Boltfish. The competition was to create a remix of "Camellia" a vocal track (vocals courtesy of Soo Lee) originally made by Cheju and included on the compilation "Region Zero". Thirteen were chosen in the end to make it on the cd and they are from The Rumblist, Kado, Z-arc, Richard Houghten, Sunburn in Cyprus, Damien Shingleton, Tito Huapaya, Mattew McCullough, Manilla, Ray Benge, Tarafonika, Sidechain and Cheju.

Personal favourites are 'Z- Arc's - retro hyperbox edit' for its neon crunch information leak, 'Tito Huapaya's - Hp Mix' for a huge sweeping flyby of a city in meltdown after the hottest summer on record and 'Cheju's - Ice Mix' for a full on fuzz up, laced with electronic ribbons.

Take a listen to em all.

Patchwork is another rich, intelligent and soothing welcome to my battery core. Boltfish continue to develop and blossom in all areas, and are fast becoming a label with a killer selection of artists, and releases. Plus I don’t think I need to say again, that all this music is available from their site or for purchase on nice neat cd packages. Just do it!." Read the whole review

Electronic Desert - 20/12/05
"Patchwork" is the title of an ambitious 2 disc release remix project signed Boltfish. The first disc features a veritable remix fest where Boltfish’s usual suspects are remixes and are remixed: J.Auer, Karmøy (recurring difficulties finding the Small o, slash character), Boc Scadet, Mint, Zainetica, Bal-a-klah-va, Polestar and Cheju all deliver fine electronic music southing to ears and soul."

"The second disc contains remixes made by winners of a competition held by Boltfish earlier this year (2005). The competition was to fabricate a remix of "Camellia" a vocal track (vocals courtesy of Soo Lee) originally made by Cheju and included on Boltfish compilation "Region Zero" (BOLT007). The final 13 to get their remix on disc were The Rumblist, Kado, Z-arc, Richard Houghten, Sunburn in Cyprus, Damien Shingleton, Tito Huapaya, Mattew McCullough, Manilla, Ray Benge, Tarafonika, Sidechain and Cheju. That’s 24 remixes stretching over 2 hours and Boltfish’s 23rd release."
