Jimi Tenor is among the producers who have dipped into many different genres, and so it is no surprise that his ReComposed installment from 2006 is an insane ride through some of the 20th century's more innovative composers. Perhaps the best piece on that record is Tenor's re-working of the 'Tres Rapide' section of Pierre Boulez's "Messagesquisse." (One can see a performance of the original piece here). Tenor turns the bit into an insanely fast, near-breakbeat number, replete with punctuating grunts and some brass. Truly energetic stuff from a truly excellent producer.

Tomorrow, a return to more techno stylings.
