continuing where “letterboxing” left off, “the more close than opran ep” is a 51-minute (8 tracks) slowgroove fest. includes the original “mcto” (trk 4 from “letterboxing”) mix plus the LOOONG-awaited fila brazillia and herbaliser remixes, 2 fine new downtempo remixes of “more close than opran”, 4 brand new caslon tracks and willy’s first remix for classical guitarist, janet feder.
“it’s all there. the beats, the samples, the hooks. but rather than pummel the listener with redundancy, twce would rather give the audience a gourmet morsel and have them savor it, rolling their tongues across the multitude of textures and sensations. by the end, the listener is satiated but not stuffed. they will be ready for more soon enough.”
