(above: still from the united visual artists' making of tonto)

Fine choice for the EP treatment with interesting remixes from The Field and Four Tet. I'm a bit less enthusiastic about the DJ EMZ / Joell Ortiz remix of Leyendecker but maybe, after a few listens, I'll change my mind. Excellent packaging;artwork by United Visual Artists, the EP includes a DVD featuring the rather awesome video of the title track. Also by UVA. A bonus documentary 'Making of Tonto' by UVA is included as well as the Atlas video.

The Tonto+ release includes remixes from Kompakt heroes 'The Field', Four Tet, a reworking of Leyendecker from DJ EMZ and DR Dre mentored mcee Joell Oritz, plus two awesome live versions - which if you've ever seen Battles live means a lot more than your average live version. Both CD & 12" include a dvd with the full length videos of Tonto and Atlas plus a making of Tonto documentary feature too. (© Warp )
