First up is Canadian techno tastemaker, Wagon Repair man and Cobblestone Jazz memberMathew Jonson. He tackles The Agent with his usual sense of class, reimagining it as aslow and broken beat track with gurgling synths, raw drums and trippy electronics. The resultis a beguiling record that sounds like little else out there.
Next up, Berlin based Rekids boss Radio Slave teams up with musical sparring partnerThomas Gandey aka Caged Baby to remix Cruel Intentions. Stripping things back to ahurried rubber kick drum, the pair tunnel deep down into hypnotic techno territory with just adistant, searchlight like synth stab for company. It is one for basements and warehouseseverywhere and is an essential bit of work that is impossible to ignore.
Fellow Canadian Maher Daniel steps up next, the DJ/Producer has been releasing his waresfor years on labels like Circus Company and All Day I Dream as well as of course on No.19.His excellent remix of The Hunt repackages the track as a slick and shiny, crisp and cleantech house cut with sharp percussion, stiff drums and ghoulish atmospheres that really getunder your skin. It is physical and full of charm, and is another fine bit of work from thisessential producer.
Finally, No.19 Music co-owner and highly respected DJ/producer Nitin remixes The Agentinto a bulky, bass heavy and bubbly house cut with fulsome drums, drunken synths and lotsof infectious groove.
