Haste is not a goodness of the Seoul Community guys but that does not have anything to do with a distinct apathy. It is rather about finding something special; to take time to generate creative output undermining the familiar structures and not sticking to usual categories. This philosophy is to be found in the remix compilation for MSMS' track Closer. Five remixes of seven artists create an image of a light-hearted passion without being influenced by commercial bonds. The almost perfect, complex and mature original version by MSMS clearly was a challenge to be vanquished. The results are five tracks which reflect each artist's individuality and afford unexpected facets.
Spedro pursues a new path which does not seem untypical for him and at the same time it disclosures an unknown and surprising side of the Berlin-based producer. A latent fresh monotony lances through the entire remix. Terry Grand's concise vocals were cut and modulated and surround the 303 kick and the bass drums. This creates a completely dynamic, groovy and melodic unit with that certain something.
Both Italians might be the scene's busiest producers at the moment. With their remix for Closer they deliver a kind of a percussive version heading straight to the finish line.
When John Lagora, in the shape of Techno, and Kevin Over, who can be identified as an upcoming Deep House talent, meet up for one track ??" then this collaboration contains a lot of potential and arouses curiosity. The result is a balancing act between both genres without being designated. Constantly the stylistic elements change their orientation and arrangement and thereby create an unexpected atmosphere with rough edges to end up in a rude, hasty outcome.
A bulky kick drum mimes the central theme being strained through the entire remix. Therewith, the American producer clearly focuses on danceability. Without detours it goes directly to the dancefloor where sound staffage, sounding like fresh wood, surrounds the kick drum's capacity creating an inviting playground and emerging the appetite for more.
The remix by JNSN comes up intransigent direct and at the same time inscrutable. Dirty clap storms interrupt the groovy structure and announce new facets which almost appear incidentally to grant the track with a certain drive.
