coming in hot off their latest watergate mix adana twins deliver their first ep stemming from the mix itself putting what could be the standout track off the compilation: their remix of patrice bäumels ‘roar front and center. taking the hugely successful original which could be considered as much a tool as it is a peak time bomb, the duo twist the initial anthem into a climactic, euphoric ride by adding their signature percussion and shimmers of melody while utilizing the originals spine tingling tension to create an absolutely massive and memorable dance floor experience. flipping to the b-side, adana twins present ‘aufstand der massen where they dive into the ethereal corners of dramatic techno reminiscent of the ‘jupiter ep from early this year creating a flawlessly executed trip into enchanted territory. having already been in constant rotation of heavy hitters like solomun and tale of us is proof enough that adana twins have a hit on their hands and now its time for you to have it too.
for our next release we welcome back two of hamburg’s finest and most recent international exports: adana twins. last seen on our latest various artists compilation, the duo returns with three absolutely stunning tracks of low slung, infectious cuts blurring the lines between house and techno with an undeniable brush stroke of character the two are quickly becoming synonymous for. ‘flower of cane’ kicks things off in an almost sinister fashion with massive low end bursts and a fever inducing, single note that never stops rising culminating in a climactic crescendo of dance floor euphoria while ‘ortus’ takes a much more ‘up-beat’ approach with dreamy arpeggios and shimmering atmospherics laid over a pulsing bassline resulting in a gorgeous number ideal for a number of memorable moments. wrapping up the originals is the guaranteed summer anthem: ‘relentless fest. jeppe kjellberg’ where sultry vocals and lush aural artifacts launch sensations to uncharted new heights. not done yet, we asked none other than the brilliant andre lodemann to create his revision of ‘relentless feat. jeep kjellberg’ and he, as always, delivered big time. with not only one but two solid reworks of the original lodemann’s remixes need no description other than there is a vocal and a dub version to satisfy any dj’s sensibility. we hope you enjoy.
