Going for such an album titled seems odd in these unsettling times, but “You Are Safe” illustrated the safe-haven Keinemusik has built itself over the last eight years. In their self determined action space, producers Rampa, &ME and Adam Port; DJ Reznik and painter/visual artist Monja Gentschow made an offer to every listener: put your headphones on, dance around your living room, forget everything and let go. When the music plays – you are safe. Keinemusik’s back catalogue has traditionally been loaded with customary EP-formats, so when &ME, Rampa or Adam Port starting discussing a joint venture, a full-length album seemed like a logical continuation of the label’s annual Workparty releases, just bigger and with more breathing room to zoom out of the dance floor-normative. It came out last November.
Raising the sound signature and stylistic expression of the collective to the next level, “You Are Safe” combined club pragmatics with homelistening pleasures like no other Keinemusik has done before. Now 6 months on and Honey Dijon’s lush rework of ‘Operator’ completes a bumper selection of remixes from the album, from artists such as Black Coffee, Solomun, Gerd Jansen & DJ Tennis. These masters have taken slected tracks, giving them the deluxe treament and trademark spin in a series of releases to mark the occasion.
