The second ØSCILLATE release of 2019 comes in the form of a special remix package, including three tracks from the last year. Company Is Family remixes Skyland Mountain's 'Oscillation', Skyland Mountain remixes MiMi's 'Volcanic Ash', and Watergate resident Ruede Hagelstein provides his own interpretation of Company Is Family's 'Steinhuder Meer'.
Ruede Haglestein takes Steinhuder Meer and completely reinvents it. Production this smooth is a rarity. Keeping original elements such as the vocals and bassline intact, Ruede goes about this remix by adding atmospheric tones throughout. Chopped, sliced and re-pitched vocal hits are followed by slick drum work. A must have.
Oscillation, Skyland Mountain's once dubby and broken cut is transformed into a 4/4 number that builds along a 9 minute timeframe thanks to Company Is Family. This slick remix doesn't take away from the grittiness of the original, but adds subtle sophistication along vocal snippets and arrangement throughout, as percussion switches up throughout. Deep, dark, and moody.
Melodic undertones were a key feature of MiMi's debut release, Volcanic Ash, and they're still lurking around in Skyland Mountain's remix, but this time around our ØSCILLATE regular loads the remix with acid tones, rising pads and heavy drum kicks. Another remix taking a dark twist and breathing new life into an already brilliant track. Superb work again.
