Remixes by Simon Mattson, Darran Nugent & Pavel Lenchenko, Kirby, Metrica and Joel Brittain
This is a real summer package here from another planet. Apart from the gorgeous Detroit influenced original we have remixes from Sandy Rivera protégé Simon Mattson (Defected/Strictly Rhythm). This mix was already selected for Funkagenda's latest mix compilation even before release so don't sleep on it. Darran Nugent & Pavel Lenchenko follow up their recent remix of Aldo Cadiz's 'Tengo C' and the 'How Can I' EP on Berlin's Mood Music with another stomping re-envisioning. Kirby has been a regular contributor on Elevation over the years and his classic remix of 'Mercury Blues' is still a huge fave. Here he drops a very cool spaced out version sure to keep fans of his releases on labels like Kolour and Lost My Dog happy. Italy's rising stars Metrica (Mood Music/Apparel/Viva) warp the original into a subtle but irresistible groover for the late night parties. Finally Joel Brittain (Tango/Wrong) takes us on a bit of classic house journey with a complex (but not overly so) rendition that naggs to be danced to.
Superluminal is a new Polish production and live DJ trio headed by Elevation artist Cbass and new collaborators Fabian and Gancz (formely nhood). nhood is an acknowledged duo, who have been producing electronic for the best part of a decade.
Cbass is probably best known as one half of Cbass & Mikobene on Elevation and also under the alias of de Giraffe. He has a long history of collaborations with artists such as Milton Jackson, Soul Minority, James Teej, Djuma Soundsystem, Pablo Bolivar, Subsky, Nikola Gala and Tomato Jaws.
Superluminal's DJ sets always include extra improvised instruments (synths and guitars) and on the fly loops making it more than just your run-of-the-mill DJ set. Superluminal is also a strong believer in making a story with the music.
