Memoryland Enhanced

On 2021’s Memoryland, CFCF reckoned with his youth by channeling the ’90s through IDM, ambient drum’n’bass, breakbeat trance, and even gothic arena-rock. With Memoryland Enhanced, the Montreal producer (a.k.a. Mike Silver) repackages that record with a companion disc that apes the era’s sprawling remix albums. “Self Service 1999 (Instupendo Remix)” is a glitched-out interpretation of the original’s sleek French house. DJ Lostboi (a.k.a. ambient producer Malibu) renders the widescreen electronic pop of “Heaven” beatless and brooding. And Giraffage and Ryan Hemsworth’s duo Bodysync flip the 2-steppy “After the After” into a playful UK garage pastiche. This being CFCF, there are in-jokes to be deciphered: The Cure homage “Punksong” becomes the My Bloody Valentine tribute “Indiesong.” Disc two, meanwhile, reprises Memoryland in its entirety, making it even easier to disappear completely into CFCF’s enveloping trip into the past.
