Sonns Reimagines ‘Cupid’s Head’ By The Field

Axel “The Field” Willner followed up his excellent 2011 LP Looping State of Mind with Cupid’s Head last fall, a somewhat slept-on but no less masterful ambient techno record. Next week, Kompakt will issue Cupid’s Head Remixe I, the first in a series of limited 12″ platters of reinterpretations of The Field’s minimal, micro-looping soundscapes.

First up is a new take on the title track by Los Angeles-based producer Sonns (pictured), who reconfigures Willner’s broken-record glitch loop as a more straightforward techno track, stretching the tune out for nearly nine minutes of aural bliss. It’s far more club-friendly than anything on The Field’s LP, but still satisfies on all counts during living-room listening sessions.

Cupid’s Head Remixe I, which also features remixes from Vatican Shadow and Barker & Baumecker, is out Jan. 20.
