Title: Son of a Thousand Sounds Remixed (Part 1)
Release: Out Now!
Genre: Deep House, Tech House
Always forward thinking, always interesting, always surprising and always captivating. The ‘Son of a Thousand Sounds’ is back, this time with the first of two albums remix projects. AFFKT invited a handful of artists to put their own imprint on tracks from the album ‘Son of a Thousand Sounds’ that was released in September on his own label Sincopat. Named after his way to work, the album was nothing less than a journey through different styles and moods, displaying his competence and passion as an electronic crossover artist, not afraid to experiment with genres.
There is an interesting range of artists invited to be part of this project, and we are introduced to both well known and some still rather unknown, but not any less talented producers. Italian-born Paul Ursin opens the release with his take on ‘Esclafit’. Paul has become increasingly noticed within the electronic music scene over the last year or two through his slightly progressive but yet rolling sound. The remix also moves in this direction with its deep body accompanied by strong, energetic percussion.
M.In and D-Lee have joined forces for the remix of ‘Mareny’. The guys successfully take the mood of the original and strip it down to a proper tech house tool living off the funky vocal, catchy drums and a solid groove. Spanish DJ and producer Squire has made the third remix in this package, giving ‘Boira’ a shaman like flair with strings and psychedelic inspired sounds. Rounding up the release is the Wavekiki remix of ‘Someone In The Sky’. The soft vocals of Sutja Guiterrez are beautifully arranged around melodic elements but always with the space they deserve, the combination giving the track a dreamy signature.
‘Son of a Thousand Sounds Remixed (Part 1)’ is a very interesting, and easy on the ear, first remixed pack that provides tracks fitting different moods and occasions. It will be fun to see what the next part brings sound and artist wise.
