At Work - Build It Up, Break It Down—Remix

Alka, Dev79, City Rain, Knife Jams, Stumble, Sub-Arkt, Clocklife and At Work have remixed At Work’s Build It Up, Break It Down.

The effort sets an IDM soundtrack for wanderings through the squandered and pillaged wastes of short-sighted development and environmental interruption to the high hopes of sustainable human occupation and transportation amongst the landscape. Perhaps best framed in Metro Commercial’s synthesized vocal reflection, “Why are we making a world like this?”

These 32 tracks (over two hours) are best suited for highway use, long journeys through suburban traffic, deserted construction sites and abandoned strip malls.

Included is a 46 page high-resolution PDF booklet, with titles, liner notes, individual track artwork. Photos by local NJ artist T. Charles and design by Nice Looking Designs.
