Alexis Taylor will release a new solo album, Beautiful Thing, on 20th April via Domino Recording Company.

Very pleased to announce my new album ‘Beautiful Thing’, to be released by Domino Recording Company on April 20th.

You can pre-order it here http://smarturl.it.../BeautifulThingMart

I made this album with Tim Goldsworthy (formerly of Mo’ Wax/Unkle/DFA) - my first time working on solo music with a producer. I am so happy with the results - it feels like quite a departure to me, and we really had some fun making it, with some new technology as well as instruments we created just for this record...

Whilst primarily made on my own with Tim, other guest musicians include Neil Hagerty, Susumu Mukai, and Emma Smith, and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip produced one track too. I am very excited for everyone to get to hear the LP in April. Roll on blank tapes, internet-based streaming, jam-on-cd-spreading, vinyl fetishising, and of course the great un-boxing. Don’t forget to listen!

I was really happy to be asked to remix this Superorganism song as I liked the original - I was into the lackadaisical feel of the song and it reminded me of Pavement who are one of my favourite bands. Makes sense that the band is also on Domino Recording Company. Excited to see them play live and hear more. Joe

This rework for Hot Chip was finished in the same weekend as my rework for Justice; two pretty different tracks to work on around the same time, and weirdly eno...ugh both those mixes ended up as personal favourites.'Boy From School' took a little longer than 'Waters Of Nazareth', and I spent a few days initially going down the wrong path. The first version was far too faithful to the original and lacked any real space, but once a more Balearic (for want of a better word) approach was taken and the sections were stripped back and extended, only then did it start making sense in a new way. I loved the vocal refrain from the chorus, it's a beautiful melody which I felt should be the centre of the mix, and I ultimately built the track around it. The thundering bass notes were not taken from any analog synth, it's actually a Farfisa home organ's foot pedal, which I'd just picked up from the local Mencap charity shop in Holloway for £50. Once I put one note into the Logic sampler and spread it over the keyboard, it gave me the exact wooden sound I wanted to add to the originals parts. The over driven held notes which come in halfway through were also from another synth, one which I probably only used on this and nothing else: the Akai AX80 running into a Thermionic Culture Vulture. A freehand part which I couldn't decide to keep in or not, but once the length of the mix was in place, it felt like it had a role in the mix.

I still play it out, almost 11 years after it was released, I think it's stood the test of time but that's credit to Hot Chip; the original is a very special track. Another thing I should say is that I'm glad I had this to work on rather then 'Over And Over' (the single previous) which I love and would possibly have no idea what to do with. One thing I learnt is that if you like a track enough, it's best to just leave it alone. Pick another track you feel you can add to, and put your imagination into that.

Phantasy have reissued and remastered this on 12" vinyl and it's part of the upcoming 'Reworks Volume 1' boxset and double CD compilation.
