Streetlife (Remixes, Pt. 1)
Original version appears on the album "Streetlife" (ITA100).
With Barnt and Axel Boman, two well-known names open the round of remixes for Von Spar's latest album "Streetlife". Barnt – long a companion and close friend of the band – uncovers epic dimensions on "Duvet Days" and expands the song to almost ten minutes. Here the celebrated Cologne producer, DJ and co-owner of the Magazine label develops a hypnotic maelstrom, interweaving his typically uncompromising rhythm arrangement of metallic hi-hats and reverberant claps artfully with the New Age Kraut melodics of the original song.
Axel Boman (Studio Barnhus / Pampa) has transformed "Breaking Formation" into a Balearic Soft Acid ballad. Smooth arpeggiators drift charmingly towards the sun and the vocals of Canadian Christopher Cummings are set amid dubby echoes to create a yearningly transcendental aphrodisiac. The digital package for the remix EP additionally offers the track to purists as an instrumental.
These two remixes transport the Cologne-Berlin quartet's artful songwriting onto the dancefloor with an understanding of how to move both body and soul alike.
