Hot off the back of the ‘Cut The Strings’ LP from Booka Shade which dropped on their Blaufield imprint in April, the duo have reached out to some of their contemporaries and fellow artists they admire to revisit and provide their own interpretations of what has been yet another impressive chapter in the Berlin-based artists careers.
Dirtybird’s main man Claude VonStroke steps up to rework ‘Easy Drifter’ first, and as expected we’re treated to driving bottom end, growling bass leads and heady acid swells alongside the original’s infectious arp line.
Circus founder Yousef turns in his take on ‘Tyrell’ next, opting for pulsating pads, oscillating bass sweeps and organic drums alongside the originals choppy pitch bending vocal cuts. Wes Wieland’s take on ‘Black Crystal’ then completes the package with a darker edge, this time round laying focus on expansive reverberated percussion, elongated bass drones and twinkling arpeggios.
The Booka Shade ‘Cut The Strings Album Remixes 1’ package is out on Blaufield 25th May 2018.
