Following the release of Aksak Maboul’s acclaimed "Figures" double album (in mid-2020), fifteen artists have revisited songs from the legendary experimental pop band’s ‘comeback’ opus.
These diverse, colourful interpretations range from simple remixes to reconstructions and cover versions, or a combination of all of these.The participants include experimental pop luminaries The Notwist (DE), Cate Le Bon (GB), Kate NV (RU) and Vanishing Twin (GB), respected electronic music artists Felix Kubin (DE), Tolouse Low Trax (DE), Hello Skinny aka Tom Skinner (Thom Yorke’s new bandmate in the Smile project, GB), Matias Aguayo (CL/DE) and Stubbleman aka Pascal Gabriel (GB/BE), revered experimentalist Carl Stone (US), up-an-coming beat makers Shungu (BE) and ohh_luuu (US), Nihiloxica’s Spooky-J (GB) and Chicago house veteran Jordan Fields (US). The collection is rounded off by four reworks made by Aksak Maboul’s Marc Hollander.
