After already putting out great efforts from the likes of Josh Wink and Jesse Rose, Moon Harbour serves up a second selection of remixes of key tracks from Matthias Tanzmann’s 2016 album, Momentum. This time it is family member Emanuel Satie, plus house legend Kerri Chandler, new school innovator Acid Pauli and UK talent Hot Since 82 who all get the call.
It is the Knee Deep In Sound boss, Hot Since 82, who kicks things off. He has become a headline star in the last couple of years with his own parties and heartfelt house jams finding favour with DJs and dancers all over. His take on ‘Tamarind’ is an unsettling tech cut with snaking synths bringing a sense of paranoia to the fluttering percussion and loopy drums. Hard to pin down German innovator Acid Pauli then flips ‘Coffee Clouds’ into a spacious and warm, rubbery and deep house groove with delicate little synth droplets and wooden percussive ticks. It’s gooey and hypnotic, to be sure.
Moon Harbour man Emanuel Satie is next and goes for the peak of the night with his busy and high pressure take on ‘Frenzy’. Its brilliantly blasted synth stabs, jostling drums and all action vibes make you want to loosen every limb on your body and really get lost in the beats. Last but not least, New Jersey don of the deep and genuine house legend Kerri Chandler turns out a masterful version of ‘Sfumato’ that is moody and atmospheric from the off. The kicks are lazy and inviting, the details bring a sci-fi feel and the whole thing just welcomes you right into its groove.
Offering some slick variations on the great originals, this remix EP mixes up old and new school talents with equally impactful results.
