This effort first lead to deliberately constructing an antipode to Slams Cirklon Bells. Contrasting grainy distorted noise and stuttering drums against the light and ambient melody of the original, the remix turns into a bittersweet yet beautifully soothing listen.
Feeling inspired by this novel approach of turning a tracks atmosphere and energy by means of opposition, Faki decided to apply it again to one of last years biggest remixes, his own re- interpretation of Scubas Black on Black. This time going into the opposite white direction, a more musical and melodic side of Len Faki is allowed to shine through when big, anthemic pads hover over a bouncy bassline and an epic breakdown gives ample room for the tracks groove to rebuild from scratch.
Finally the newfound workflow sees Faki take on Philippe Petits Suspened off his recent EP for Figure SPC. Building upon the originals quivering melody, Faki injects it with serious momentum by carefully added skittering percussion and some deeply moving bass, thus taking the already uplifting vibe even further.
