V/A: Reformat: A Tribute To Bit Shifter's Information Chase CD 8BP118
Conceived in conspiratorial secret by Michael Lerman (Datapop, Fuckjazzforaminute) as a birthday present for Josh Davis (Bit Shifter), the Reformat compilation sees nearly two dozen reinterpretations of tracks from the Bit Shifter EP Information Chase, by musicians from around the world, in a dizzying and at times hilarious array of styles and approaches. Released to coincide with the five-year anniversary of Information Chase, Reformat takes the opportunity to approach a handful of familiar tracks from 23 unexpected angles, resulting in a compilation that's as unpredictable as it is fun.
