Nymphaea has been a staple of the DARSOMBRA set for 2+ years. Always a crowd favorite, the track was only released on the untitled 55 artist, 3CD compilation that PG co-curated in 2007. Now, DARSOMBRA has decided to retire the song from the live set. In lieu of a memorial, Public Guilt asked 12 remixers to have a crack at reinterpreting the track. What better way to lay something to rest than to rip it apart and let other people put it back together? From children's toys-based pop songs to blissed-out ambience, throbbing electronica to vocal interpretations sung in Latin, the resulting tracks on Nymphaea are an eclectic and varied bunch.

Review

The vocal and toy piano rendition by London's Max Bondi & Bleeding Heart and the R&B funeral dirge by New York's Ala Muerte are stunning enough to stand alone, and some of the landscapes and textures on Nymphaea succeed in making Daniloski's earthy proto-pop sound positively ghostly. - 5/5
