After releasing his highly praised sophomore full-length MANTASY (KOMCD100/KOM250) last year, KOMPAKT honcho MICHAEL MAYER signed on some of his favorite artists to rework the album material to their liking. The second entry in a series of three, MANTASY REMIXE 2 features grandiose remixes from accomplished producers AGORIA, ROBAG WRUHME and WILL SAUL & OCTOBER markedly picking up on the originals thirst for adventure.
Seminal Frenchman AGORIA certainly doesnt need an
introduction to any self-respecting fan of electronic dance music, as the long list of worldwide floor biggies released by this unique producer indisputably proves. For MANTASYs lead single GOOD TIMES, he delves deeply into the tracks cheerful, life-affirming vibe, orchestrating a massive beach party fuelled by spritzing beats and sunny wobble. A pivotal primetime banger, his SUNLUNE MIX shows all the signs of an instant classic that will build floors and feed frenzies for years to come.
MANTASYs beatless masterpiece BAUMHAUS already found some deft remix love with THE MOLE on MANTASY REMIXE 1 (KOM271), an enticing affair that now gets a perfect companion in ROBAG WRUHMEs typically atypical PAAVO AND VEITA REHAND. Starting off with some informal percussion and a hint of field recording glamour thrown in for good measure, the German sound wizard soon introduces several waves of orchestral bliss, making this remix a highly immersive trip to the heart of a magical jungle.
Simple Records WILL SAUL and production buddy OCTOBER recently attracted lots of attention with their Light Sleeper release that also featured an elaborate remix from MICHAEL MAYER. They return the favor with a surprisingly mental take on Disco-infused title track MANTASY, where they commandeer the originals swooning synth flute and relocate it on a snowy mountaintop surrounded by a mystical chant of unknown origins. A slightly uncanny rework, this one nevertheless packs a decent punch, making it a perfect finish
for an already strong collection.
