Having had their Underyourskin Records debut with the 'Letters EP' last year the Hamburg producer duo Shkoon continues their musical journey with a six tracker on the label. 'Build Your Castles' heroically presents the fusion between the Occident and contemporary electronic music and comes along with two new original versions namely 'Build Your Castles' and 'Bushiya' each provided with two remixes. The EP's eponymous track remains true to the duo's striking style combing traditional oriental vocals and soundscapes with a yet more uplifting baseline that is ensnared by a synth soundframe that indicates an acid bleep outburst giving the track its distinctive note. Arutani's remix focuses on the traditional sound excerpts of the original but remodels the original vibe into a downtempo construct that creates its very own dynamic that peaks when the vocals unfold. The second remix is provided by MiRET who endues the original with a way more techy baseline that turns it into a proper dancefloor weapon. 'Bushiya's' fizzling synths that smoothly sneak around the oud and sticcado easily blurs the boundaries between traditional and contemporary music and evoke a grasping feeling of melancholy reinforced by an Arabian chant. Rodrigo Gallardo builds his remix around the oudsound from the original and lays it on top of a luscious baseline that turns the track to an ambitious oriental listening experience yet maintaing its downtempo pace. Ali Faharini's retreat of 'Bushiya' highlights the shaped sound of an Arabian flute while the synthmelody steps from the back to the foreground and vibes smoothly with the stomping baseline.
