The Remixes follow on from the release of his highly anticipated 4th studio album released this spring: Brunetto Sheroine (Irregular, 2014). An album inspired by his love of comic books and fantasies that pays homage to Brunetto´s favourite musical decade so far, the 90s (UNKLE, Death in Vegas, Orbital, Skint records, The Dust Brothers...).
The first track is from one of the wicked young talents of the current European electronic scene, Berlin-based artist Ioan Gamboa (whose debut album, Vibrations was also released this year). Gamboa best skills are reflected on his Kuklinski remix (yep, that one dedicated to the infamous NYC mafia´s hit man). One lined with sparkling vocal and trancy samples, kept steady by a spare-but-effective series of deep kicks and an unbeatable wall of warm-blooded grit.
The second track is a remix of Evergreen, the first single to be released from Sheroine (feat. I AM DIVE). Film-score atmospheres, drama bass, sci-fi, puzzling pop and lo-fi, airy techno that still maintains a vintage flavour are the main ingredients for this Grey Scale Rework Brunetto did it himself. This track encompasses both the beautiful and the mysterious in cosmic e-pop music.
Then lastly the light at the end of the tunnel: Usmevs remix of Cinnamon. Xavier Altés (his real name) signifies the arrival of warmer melodies for an uplifting closer. An elegant and transparent blend of house and disco. A club-rooted track into a more pensive affair. Usmev blends precise deep rhythms with an array of swimming textures. It's a gentle housey treat that moves at just the right pace.
