about

To follow up the release of their first new studio album in five years, Tortoise returns with a two song remix 12" of songs from Beacons of Ancestorship. In the late 90s Tortoise released a series of highly influential remix 12"s with remixers as diverse as Stereolab, Jim O'Rourke, Oval, Autechre, Unkle and Derrick Carter. It is no surprise that their return to the remix 12" format features other luminaries of the scene. Side A features none other than Eye from Boredoms doing a remix of the album's opening track "High Class Slim Came Floatin' In". Side AA features the legendary dub/version master Mark Ernestus of Basic Channel and Rhythm & Sound doing a Version of the track "Gigantes".
