NOVA 118 EP (SAMUEL L SESSION, JUSTIN BERKOVI REMIXES)
12" Vinyl D30.10.17
to make it true and organic was the main purpose when german producer filou started his work for nova 118 ep. both original tracks, radon and scandium represent the path of techno with house influences. the tracks are rich in details and short fills which makes this a truly outstanding record. as this isnt enough filou presents two versions of -radon- and -scandium- demonstrating where techno and house can take you. as the original concentrates on a percussive rhythm, samuel l. sessions version is arranged more classically -- a deep chord, a clear beat, accentuated hi-hats and claps. the -justin berkovi remix- carefully-placed sounds building the track into a dynamic and hypnotic whole. the percussiveness here is more profound, shaping the track in a completely different way. already massive plays by a bunch of dj-s incl. villalobos.
140-gram vinyl plus full sleeve. globally recognized and respected remixers and producers frank lorber and marcus fix are pair up with producer and live specialist filou to launch inter zero ep on resopal. the two remixers are known for numerous releases on cocoon as a bunch of production credits on different labels while filou debuts with his 12-. here, they evolve to focus on minimal reduced techno funk. two original tracks and two remix works on this 12-. rubbery and direct, with clacking perc, freewheeling synth lines, and bubbly, roaming drums. a must have.
