It’s hump day – you’re almost to the weekend, just hang tight. If you’re already in need of a second wind to push through to Friday, this remix EP from Will & Ink may do the trick; the original Mersenne single, from which these remixes take from, is also worth checking out if you’re wanting more dub techno. Roman Lindau takes “Mersellanious” and amps up its dub elements while giving it a minimal techno skin with plenty of bass; the original sounded like an homage to Basic Channel’s “Mutism.”  Emmanuel takes “Third Mersenne” and turns it in to a raw-edged techno banger. Meanwhile, Yaleesa Hall takes “First Mersenne” and turns it in to something aquatic, and I feel like it’d be best listened to speeding through an underground tunnel in the middle of the night. All this to say, this record can serve as your motivator and as a party pleaser. Check out the preview via the SoundCloud stream below and see what you think of it. Cheers!

The Details

The unstoppable force that has become the Will & Ink label now offers up its first remix EP. Those hand picked to work their own magic on three originals by the the Will & Ink production duo are Fachwerk’s Roman Lindau, Greek born Emmanuel and Yaleesa Hall, the mysterious artist who released her debut EP on this label back in 2014.

Up first is techno heavyweight Roman Lindau, who is a key part of the Fachwerk label. He tackles ‘Mersellanious’ from the Mersenne EP and does so with his usual stripped back, well swung sense of techno funk. Next up is ARTS label owner Emannuel, who goes for a fierce, intense and edgy peak time techno banger full of raw texture and incendiary drums on his remix of 'Third Wilson' from 2013. Lastly, Yaleesa Hall sets to work on a track from the same EP and does so with a little, fluid sense of hypnotic techno groove that comes embellished with heady synths and a real sense of purpose. Once again here the Will & Ink label is showing the way when it comes to contemporary techno talent.

Price $9.62
