Dunkelheit welcomes back the team-up of Berlin producers Guzy and Deckert for 'Funkenflug EP', a powerfully captivating and diverse package containing two wild and groundbreaking original tracks, each accompanied by a massive remix.
Guzy's stylish exposition of groove meets Deckert's spectacular guitar skills for a fantastic and wonderfully unexpected result. 'Funkenflug' kicks it off with the towering energy of distorted riffs, hypnotic leads, and tight percussion; this is techno that smashes boundaries and pushes the musical envelope to a whole new echelon. Next up is 'Fainting', a house anthem that pays homage to the legendary bass tones of The Faint. Merging Guzy's production chops with Deckert's lethal bass guitar hooks, this is a dangerously addictive item best enjoyed at savage volume levels.
For the remixes, first up is Shanghai-based newcomer Final Request, rearchitecting 'Funkenflug' into a high-speed orbital vehicle for the dancefloor. Riffs are skillfully layered onto plucky bass with just a hint of acid, and flowing through it is a bright progressive energy that will move the crowd onto a far higher trajectory.
Finally, Italian maestro Carlo Whale pours in his conservatory-trained melodic magic for an epic remix of 'Fainting'. Tremendously deep and uplifting, Carlo's exposition brims with nostalgia and yearning, a wide horizon of cinematic pads and silky textures throw open heavy doors, straight into the listener's heart.
