Remixes for Springintgut's "Where We Need No Map".
Springintgut is the former artist name of Andi Otto.
Duke Slammer (Bonusround) from London is one of the prodigies of the upcoming Skweee-Scene (which is otherwise mainly based in Scandinavia). Slow, bouncy beatworks merge with the essence of Springintgut's synth-hooks of “Dizzy Heights”, with Sasha Perera's vocals skillfully chopped and spiced.
Pingipung's hey-ø-hansen and Peter Presto rework the ponderous “Ode To Yakushima” which originally consists of nothing but pizzicato cello chords and a Japanese voice field recording. Both artists turn this melancholy last track of the album into a deep and cheerful Dub-Session.
RSS Disco are a much beloved DJ trio from Pingipung's hometown Hamburg, whose fame has recently grown on quickly sold-out records like their beautiful “Disco Very EP” (Mireia Rec). They pick the Indian track on the album and remix the south Indian string sections and vocals over layers of hypnotic percussion.
Tilman Tausendfreund (Hypercolour) takes up the theme of “Ode To Yakushima” again. The DJ and producer from Hamburg dives deep into the cello pads and manages to cut the Japanese vocals in a way that they turn into a dancefloor lullaby.
Finally, Icarus (Leaf Rec) from London apply their algorithms to “Incentive Pizzicato”. It turns into a 7 min drum and pizzicato orgy with an unexpected piano in between.
