Mother Jefferson “Lost In The Past”

Mother Jefferson
Lost In The Past
KIDD 10010

Innovative producer, remixer, DJ and engineer-extraordinaire, Rob Rives as gone under many names; Floppy Sounds, Phantom Power, Fluid X and Shade. On his long-awaited KID Recordings debut, he chose to reach back into pop TV culture and grab the mother-in-law from The Jefferson as his new alias.

Rives has established himself as one of New York’s premiere architects of hard, dark and penetrating electro-fuelled tech-house having worked with an impressive array of luminaries including Yoko Ono, Can, Underworld, Kraftwerk, Pet Shop Boys, The Orb, Green Velvet, X-Press 2, Francois K. and Danny Tenaglia. On “Lost In The Past” he begs the question: “what is house?” House is whatever you want it to be – the pulsating fusion of past and present in harmonious union. The result is a sweaty, unapologetically underground workout worthy of prime-time spins. B-side “Dusk” is an existential journey into psychedelic prog-house and stargazing space disco clocking in just under 11 minutes (owing much to Pink Floyd, Manuel Göttsching, Global Communication and Woolfy vs Projections) with an edit by Jason Hayer.
