The Field’s Cupid’s Head Remixes To Get Digital Release
The Field’s debut album, 2007’s seminal “From Here We Go Sublime”, was a standalone breakthrough. A paradoxical meeting of refreshingly sickly sweet excessively emotive sounds meeting with ear grabbing straightforward minimalist structures.
From that initial critically acclaimed triumph Axel Willner has released three further long players under The Field moniker. Seminal’s not a word used lightly in electronic music and not necessarily applicable in the case of The Field as there aren’t really any directly seedlings other than Willner’s own efforts. It’s a sound which has retained it’s feeling of originality, the present album included.
Thus you can imagine our excitement when Kompakt Records confirmed that his debut album would be getting a re-release as a special edition double LP for this years Record Store Day. Initially the ten track effort was only released in CD format with an accompanying sampler so for fans the thought of nabbing a copy in proper vinyl form is an exciting prospect indeed.
Well that’s not the only The Field material to be getting a re-release with equally excellent Cupid’s Head 12” remix packages now being collated into a digital compilation after initially only being released in vinyl form.
Simply titled The Cupid’s Head Remixes, the eight-track collection will feature reworks from the likes of Vatican Shadow, Kompakt affiliate John Tejada, Ostgut Ton producers Barker & Baumecker, Tim Hecker and two tracks by Kompakt co-founder Wolfgang Voigt under his Gas moniker when it arrives on May 12.
