Ray Volpe Gets Into Ookay’s Mind

Perhaps you know Barclay Crenshaw from his recent Goldrush set, or maybe you know him as Claude VonStroke‘s “alter” (but also original) ego. One thing is certain, he’s a memorable fellow, and his self-titled debut album Barclay Crenshaw, was no different. It contained 10 totally unique, out-of-this-world tracks, or transmissions if you will. Last month, those tracks got remixed, and Barclay gave us Barclay Crenshaw: Revisited.
This remix album features artists such as EPROM, Bleep Bloop, Salva, and Persian Empire, and brings in new elements like mental beats, industrial grime, and a surprising touch of delicately melodic ambiance. With the release Barclay left a transmission of his own:
A strange occurrence in the status quo of our solar system has created a crack in space and time. A parallel reality now runs alongside the world we know. Small blips and visions of this other dimension have become visible to a few devoted followers of the six symbols.
An alternate version of the Barclay Crenshaw album has been discovered as one of the first musical messages to break through. Unusual versions of the record have presented themselves from the other side. Names like Eprom, Salva, Bleep Bloop, Deebs, Om Unit, Persian Empire and Nozu have been mentioned in the report.
But an even stranger occurrence is the appearance of a new piece of music not associated with the original record; possibly suggesting that deviations in space are able to generate completely new results. This affair has come from bizzaro versions of Mad Zach and Barclay Crenshaw working together.
Be warned! Listening to this release could have long-term repercussions on your well being and your perception of reality.
After a few run-throughs, I can’t say I’ve heard much like it. My personal favorites are EPROM’s version of “I’m Up Here,” and “The Gene Sequence” from Bleep Bloop, but take a listen and decide for yourself!
