Every great album needs a solid remix EP! Thats what Niconé thought to himself after the recent release of his critically acclaimed Let Love Begin longplayer. Thus he invited friends and artists he admires alike to reinterpret some of the highlights of the album. The results are as versatile as they are stunning.
Big-room piano work-out Burnhain gets the treatment by three heavyweights of the scene. Englands Ejeca has been causing quite a stir with his signature mix of classic Jersey house and UK bass elements. Here, he turns in a tasteful mix of high-pitched vocals, which focuses on dub chords rather than the originals piano melody. Teenage Mutants opts for the no nonsense approach as he delivers a straight house banger of driving hats and a bass-line to die for, while Mat.Joe chop up the piano hook and loop it over a new percussive skeleton.
SISs remix of Querido is an epic twelve minute long journey that takes the originals vocals into darker, drugged-out territories. Psychedelic! Similarly, Gunjah goes all out on his dramatic synth interpretation of Let Love Begin, which seems made with Ibiza closing parties in mind. Rampues version of Candelaria is, in contrast, crafted for dark winter days as lots of melancholia runs through the veins of the track. Of course, Niconé was keen to turn in a remix himself and enlisted his good friend Philip Bader to give him a hand. The resulting reinterpretation of Candelaria is an out-and-out tech house monster made for the peaktime.
