Almost everything that the Sum Over Histories label bosses Frankey & Sandrino touch is soulful, organic, electronic goodness.
This release seemed, from the start to be a perfect storm of synchronicity; different worlds colliding, forming a big-bang of creativity.
In this case the super talented Eelke Kleijn squares away another track from his album with the second of a stellar set of remixes (the first being from another reliable talent Patrice Bäumel and well worth checking) from his creative outlet DAYS like NIGHTS.
Add to that the wonderful Diana Miro‘s vocal talents and have the whole thing remixed by Frankey & Sandrino, it’s something you’re going to have to give some attention.
It doesn’t always happen this way, but just as I imagined Frankey & Sandrino have re-imagined the original breaks track and turned in an eight minute deep-progressive, skanking, chugger – ethereal and full of wonder.
The groove and arrangement are unhurried and full of space and the vocal treated respectfully in the context of a house track. There is a simplicity here that seems easy to achieve but it is the product of talent, maturity and countless hours of time invested in honing the skills to be able to produce a remix this slick.
There isn’t much more to say about this release. It did two things; reinforce my belief that Frankey & Sandrino are a tour-de-force in electronic music production and turned me on to Eelke’s album ‘Oscillations’ which, despite the recent engaging remixes, is well worth looping back round on.
Watch out for Mano Le Tough’s remix of ‘Woodstock’ too, an inspired set of remixes from the album.
