VVWI recordings is pleased as punch to welcome New York's greatest electronic export to our strength.
Adultnapper AKA Francis Harris has worked hand in glove with esteemed VVWI stalwart Mr C (as "Sycophantic Slags") for many years and has single-handedly produced many, many a rocking tune under the Adultnapper moniker to great underground acclaim all over the world.
Thanks to VVWI's close association and friendship with Mr C, it was merely a matter of time before Adultnapper kindly consented to get on board the good ship VVWI and head wrongwards to the wind with us.
As for the track, Bionic Language is a more esoteric package from Tim Sheridan than his work for VVWI to date. Inspired by his tinkering about with a mic, it bolts together tiny snippets of vox to make a "bionic language" of Sheridan's own nonsensical devising, transposed high and low and twisted and worked into a Voodoo-esque chant. Of the two versions, one doffs its imaginary hat to - whisper it - breaks. And the other is a more dancefloor-driven floor-botherer that, in Sheridan's more trademark style, builds a classically inspired structure from down-and-dirty beats to a crescendo of weirdness - as well as taking sharp unexpected turns into tech-ness, just when least expected.
The Adultnapper take was an intentional invitation to bring a darker edge to the mix. He retains the original loose and organic percussion work, but infuses it with a deeper and murkier undercurrent, completing a package of mixes we are very proud of.
A late salute to the summer, a souvenir of the sun. Enjoy.
"A cool release from a cool guy." - Craig Torrance (Mixmag)
"Big Adultnapper remix!" - Alex Flitsch (Connaisseur Recordings)
"Weird as fuck...nice job!" - Konrad Black
"Is this progressive Afro? But then at the same time it sounds like the vocals are being scratched by a Hip Hop-DJ. I think I go for the house-mix." - Shir Khan
"Love it! Top release!....Original house mix is probably my favourite, but all very strong tracks." - Max Cooper
"What a phenomenal record! One of the best records of the year for me already!" - Rob Warner (Our House)
"Adultnapper mix is fire! Phew!" - Brendon Moeller
"Love the Adultnapper remix! - [a]pendics.shuffle" - Kenneth James Gibson
"Very nice I like the House remix but my fav' is the Adultnapper remix." - Alexi Delano
"Great promo, like the original of Bionic Language" - Tom Dazing
"Really wasn't expecting this! House mix is my favourite, but original is brilliant too. I didn't think I'd ever hear a balearic record on VVWI. Best thing that the label has done so far!" - Kristian Dando (IDJ)
"Quite a sexy release. Like the percussive vibe." - Fil OK (Nag Nag Nag)
"House mix is great! Adultnapper is for late dark twisted nights...." - Michel De Hey
"L'original est surprenant au niveau de sa rythmique broken beat. BasÃ© sur une boucle rythmique spirituelle dans le texte, ce track est hors du temps. Le House Mix pose une rythmique un peu plus dansante, mÃªme si Ã§a reste deep." - Ludovic Rambaud (Only For DJs)
"Liking a lot! Great groove on remix." - Layo
"Another great release - all mixes are cool." - Zak Frost
"Oooh...thhis is just what the doctor ordered...the witch doctor. Great stuff..." - Paul Zimmerman (The POP! Stereo)
