Alex Ketzer’sÂ Falling Off Remixes is an EP of four tracks, reshaped by Lab Matix, Baumfreund, maryLA, and Wenzel Mehnert, which more or less resulted in a sampler platter of genres on this thing. Within you’ll find dub techno, deep house, IDM and Chicago house. However, what they all have in common (aside from all of them belonging to the same obvious electronic family tree) is that all of them give rise toÂ the same aquatic/icy spirit; I suppose it’s no coincidence that when Noorden choseÂ the color scheme that they did on the cover and the wax.Â The way the colors mix on the display vinyl picture look like pools of antifreeze within a giant block of ice which, too, is fitting. All of these remixes may sound like they’re a part of some Arctic blizzard rearing its head, but you’ll want to get up and move – you won’t be paralyzed when the wintry mix hits. Check out the remixes below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of them. Cheers!
Â»Leg SpinÂ« is the new vinyl spin-off for more dancefloor-oriented tracks of Cologne based Noorden collective. The first 12" in this series is a remix EP with four interpretations of Alex Ketzerâ€™s Â»Falling OffÂ« EP that was originally released on tape in 2012.
The A-side starts with Lab Matix whose reshaping of Â»Remember The TimeÂ« resonates with far distant memories and echoed sounds, powerful chords and longing vocals â€“ lost in the haze of Detroit. The track is followed by Baumfreundâ€™s very british interpretation of Â»Falling OffÂ« which features pushing trombones, straight forward drums and an arc of suspense compelling you to hit the dancefloor.
On the flipside maryLA has fired up their analog gear and chips in a very soulful and Chicago-inspired house-remix of Â»Get AwayÂ« giving off a warm yet crisp feeling. The second track on the B-side is Wenzelâ€™s adaptation of Â»For Your LoveÂ« â€“ a deep and hypnotic trip through an abyss of synth-sounds, dubby beats and catchy vocals straight into the sunrise.
