about

On The Night Train Vacancies, Liminal Drifter takes his ideas of shifting identities, travel and states of consciousness to the logical extreme. While most of debut album Troubled Mystic (Hidden Shoal, 2015) was written while travelling and visiting new places, The Night Train Vacancies sees Liminal Drifter’s music taking new journeys of its own.

By throwing the original tracks out into the world, to be reinterpreted by artists such as Erik Nilsson, Striphy, Warren Scott, ddos, Matt McLean (of Lilt), Lvmark, p_Frisk, Escue and Robwun, Simon Order has invested his musical flights of fancy with fresh wings.

Label-mate Erik Nilsson’s reworking of ‘Trouble Mystic’ is an exercise in both restraint and expansion, reining in the original’s down tempo beats and horns, pairing Chloe March’s voice with nylon-string guitar and shimmering synth.

Matt McLean, working under the moniker of Feeding | Ear, morphs the ambient electronica of ‘Adventure Beyond the Body’ into a spectral, tension-and-release banger.

p-Frisk’s sublime mashup seamlessly interweaves three originals from Troubled Mystic into an eerie shuffle, populated by ghostly hooks, while Order’s own remix of label-mate Kryshe’s ‘Lullaby’ renders the original in a palette that sits beautifully with the other tracks.

In fact, if there’s a distinguishing feature of this collection, it’s how well the tracks flow together, despite the variety of remixers involved and their diverse approaches to the source material.
