There are few artists who can match the technical wizardry and craft of Exoplanet. With over a century of credits found on the Proton and Particles imprints, it is February 2011's "Shepherd of Consciousness", with initial remixes from Chloe Harris and Moonbeam, that Yin and Yang now revisit with fine new interpretations from Greece and Poland.
An artist who has constantly been at the vanguard of the progressive house and breaks scene, Monojoke continues to cross new musical boundaries with his music. From early work in an incipient production career that began in 2006, Monojoke has developed strong relationships, with the likes of Clinique, Electronic Tree and Particles all regularly featuring his music. Furthermore, a century of production credits can be found within Spring Tube family labels that have included both remix and original production material. Supported by the DJ elite that includes Above and Beyond, Jaytech and Nick Warren, it is an honour to welcome Monojoke to Yang with a debut remix of Exoplanet.
Treating "Shepherd of Consciousness" to his customary skill, Monojoke's use of original components turns the track into a full-blooded, dynamic affair. Chock full of intricate percussive rhythms, Exoplanet's wonderful lead riff is treated to a hypnotic treatment that evolves delicately throughout the seven-and-a-half-minute outing as a raft of additional production material is added post-breakdown in spectacular fashion. A deep and opulent bass line further serves to add depth, strength and warmth to an outstanding remix.
