01. Get Away From It All (Justin Robertson Remix)
02. Get Away From It All (2009 Mix)
“It promises an escape that sounds anything but idyllic, as terse robot voices intone the title phrase over stuttering, minimalist break beats… a leftfield electronic delight that’s well worth getting hold of.”
Thus assessed journalist Chris Downton in a glowing review that appeared last year in the pages of esteemed music mag, 3D World.
The subject? Little Nobody’s iconic (and often equally iconoclastic) track, ‘Get Away From It All’.
A year later, we asked Justin Robertson to remix the work, counting on his experience rebooting Bjork, Happy Mondays, Fatboy Slim, Luke Slater, Ben Mill and Felix Da Housecat, and thinking that the mix-master would have an absolute field day here – which he apparently did, snapping up the invitation without hesitation, giving the ingredients a good hard shake, and coming back with a mind-bending, cool, supremely innovative concoction that stunned everybody.
We also inducted Andrez Bergen, the musician behind the Little Nobody project, as well as Funk Gadget and Schlock Tactile, to do his own revision. Think a hugely subbed-up bassline and a kick, when it arrives, that’d bend the senses of any unsuspecting recipient, intercut with fragments of the instrumentation and vocals from the original track, and you have a shattering experience that’s quite simply inspired.
