    Slag Boom Van Loon - So Soon

    As is often the way with remix 'projects', the finished tracks bare scant relation to the originals (in this case, collaborations between Mike Paradinas and Speedy J). So everyone's gonna want this for the elegiac 'new' tracks from alleged David Koresh-style cultists Boards Of Canada. But don't overlook Four Tet (dubby breakbeat), Matmos (dubby musique concrete), Pole (um, just dubby), or Coil (insect orchestra annihilates solar system). There's an additional track from Icelandic pop starlets mum on the limited sampler 12-inch. It's all good. And why not track down the original Slag Boom album while you're at it?
