Following his debut full-length "Cues", released earlier this year on toucan sounds, Derek Muro recruits Machine Woman for a remix of standout album cut "Rill2". Chalking up releases on Where To Now?, Ninja Tune's sister label Technicolour, and her own Take Away Jazz Records, the Russian native delivers a typically dense and hypnotic take on Muro's original work.

Across the "Lower Manhattan Rework", Machine Woman adds a pulsing 4/4 underneath snippets of her trademark spoken word, re-imagining elements from Muro's densely ambient track into a deep and trippy affair. The "Upper Manhattan Instrumental Rework" strips the vocals away, focusing instead on her intricate production for a bonus addition to the package.

Derek Muro is a creator of music that embraces concepts of emotion, memory, and perception in his work. Beginning his career from an art space in Bushwick while working weekend shifts as a church organist on Long Island, he is now an award-winning composer for film and game as a partner at the YouTooCanWoo studio in Brooklyn, having a diverse career that has wound through the studios of Hans Zimmer, with performances at BAM and the Yale Institute for Music Theatre.
