The original mix sees Cosani take "Love Song" on a path a deep chunky rhythms and hi-hat groove that lays the foundations for rich melodic interplay to evolve from muted plucks and textured pads. Reaching a melodic denouement in the breakdown, the third and fourth movements thus see a seething dance floor monster evolve in effortless glory.
Owner of the successful Movement Recordings, Tash has ridden a tidal wave of triumph over fifteen years of DJ performances and production work. His music signed to a plethora of high-calibre imprints, Baroque, Vapour and Lowbit have all played host to the Tash sound with support from the DJ elite including Digweed, Warren and Cattaneo. A regular in Beatport's progressive house and techno charts, the Greek is another Suffused Music debutant. Weaving his production magic, the Tash "Snareless" remix of "Love Song" uses a clever percussive groove to breathe new life into Cosani's original. Taking the key melodic elements, his intelligent additional production adds a further layer of polish and veneer through rasping bass line, shifting his interpretation into subtle new directions.
From the mecca of US dance music, Detroit resident, Justin Emery, has seen his Pappa Sierra alter ego begin to merge as a serious name in the underground music industry. Work for The Seed, Change Audio and Lowbit has outlined an impressive set of credentials with a series of original and remix material that saw a successful rework of Dmitry Molosh's "High" for the latter in April 2015. Now arriving on Suffused Music, the Pappa Sierra remix provides a deep and dark affair that springs to life through ticking percussive urgency. Making full use of Cosani's original components, Emery has crafted a new direction for "Love Song" through impressive, cavernous bass riff and a strong beats-laden offering with clever spot-effects drenched in reverb and delay.
The final Suffused Music debutant sees Stellar Fountain manager, Erich Von Kollar take up the reins. A man with a keen sense of music knowledge and production prowess, Von Kollar's syndicated shows across Digitally Imported, Innervisions and Frisky Radio has also seen him produce two "Relations" compilations for Proton Music's "Compiled and Mixed" series. A production career that has seen the Hungarian with a dozen credits on his own label, alongside work for Soundteller and Balkan Connection, the Erich Von Kollar remix of "Love Song" is anchored around a wonderful bass line that combines intelligent interpretation and emotive response in equal measure. A full-blooded rhythm section keeps the energy high while astute use of Cosani's original components provides Erich Von Kollar with a remix of skill and precision.
