a1: >ondu< stellte auf dem >sool< album bereits einen meilenstein dar, wodurch er seine relevanz für eine extra singelauskopplung mehr als unterstrichen hat. dieser track hat im original zwei gesichter: harmonisch und verbindend auf der einen, und schroff und düster auf der anderen seite. a2 ondu (paul ritch remix) paul ritch zerlegt >ondu< in seine einzelnen bestandteile. er isoliert jeden effekt und gibt ihm eine neue bestimmung ohne jedoch den gesamtcharakter des tracks zu verändern. >ondu< behält im paul ritch remix seine spleenige und schizophrene attitüde aus dem original bei, gewinnt jedoch ungemein an leichtigkeit. b1: caress (chaim remix) chaim fängt bei seinem >carees< remix an den track von hinten aufzurollen. es hat scheinbar den eindruck als würde er dem soundteppich des originals mit einem großen teppichklopfer ordentlich zusetzen. heraus kommt ein track der ganz klar an das original erinnert, allerdings wird die hypnotische ruhe von einer quirligen unruhe überrannt. b2: caress >caress< im original kommt auf einen weiten klangteppich daher, welcher dem hörer vermittelt es sich bequem zu machen und der dinge zu harren die da kommen. und wie diese kommen. mit einer hypnotisch, hauchenden stimme zieht der track den hörer in seinen bann und eröffnet bereitwillig die tiefe des raumes

this time we ve taken a trip to israël where deep a & vek are from. these two youngsters produce deep and hypnotising minimal that is hugely inspired by heroes like chaim or guy gerber. they gave us three tracks that each and every one are a story on itself. all tracks take their time to build up to a climax and bubble out into soundscaped synth lines and carefully constructed melodies, aiming not only on the mind, but also at your feet.

incl. massive rmxs by chaim & patrick zigon gel brings us into a twisted atmosphere with >very wrong<, an amazing track with an obscure relentless bassline sustaining a tripped-out melody line. an astounding piece of tech-house at its best, already destined to be one of the anthems of this summer 2007. on the flip side, >cocoon< rising star chaim gives a different twist to the tune, bringing it into techno territories and pumping grooves. completing the b-side is patrick zigon, patricks mix delivers a perfect >german< interpretation of the original and keeps the legs shaking with the melody line smartly adapted to a more minimal groove. a perfect closer for this release that tries to appeal to as many as different tastes, from the tech house lovers to the more minimal / techno oriented djs. as promised, be as one is keeping the quality standard of its output to the max making it one of the most promising label of 2007
den knaben hier kennen wir schon von cocoon und als produzentenpartner von guy gerber. ein fachmann, also. >carolin< zeichnet sich durch einen wieder erkennbaren, signifikanten cord aus, der im zentrum des stücks steht, etwas aus dem groove rutscht und dann durch das beat korsettt hineingezogen wird. das stück ist unglaublich euphorisch und aufbauend und ein großer track für den floor !!

in the space of two short years shlømo has quickly established himself alongside the likes of marcelus, bambounou, francois x and the antinote records crew as a key figure in paris’ current techno generation. having established his own taapion records label in 2013 and built a roster around a core of local producers including roman poncet, pvnv and antigone, in addition to enlisting stephen brown, conforce and sterac as remixers for the label’s releases so far. for its fifth release, bright sounds - run by fellow parisian kennedy smith - revisits last year’s rechaïm ep (bsrx003), with a trio of remixers offering their own takes on shlømo’s established deep and expansive sound. first up is the aforementioned 50 weapons artist bambounou, who offers a dynamic groove-based version of the title track that bounces along an elastic kick drum with cut-up fragments of the original’s atmospheric pads providing further impetus. label owner kennedy smith takes on theory is the worst by bringing its dub textures to the for while filling the track’s empty spaces with intricate drum patterns. finally, italian techno pioneer donato dozzy turns grounded queen into a classic dozzy slow-burning techno trip, with his trademark layered sound complimenting the track’s subtle rhythmic backbone.
bright sounds present their third release, from paris-based producer shlømo - owner of kindred spirit label taapion. having made a big impression in late-2013 with taapion s debut release the harvest ep (featuring conforce and stephen brown remixes), shlømo now presents his second full solo ep: rechaïm explores similar sonic textures to those found on taapion and bright sounds releases so far - a richly layered and dense world of dub techno atmospherics with dancefloor versatility. the four tracks all allow for different aspects of shlømo s exemplary production skill to shine through, marking the producer alongside bright sounds owner and fellow parisian as producers and a&r talents to keep close watch of.
