CROSSING 008 (INCL THOMAS HESSLER / NORMAN NODGE / RON ALBRECHT / THE AUTOMATIC RMXS)
12" Vinyl D01.12.16
huge remix package with works from thomas hessler, norman nodge, ron albrecht and the automatic message. the label from avion strikes with its 8th installment releasing a kicking remix package from the previous crossing 007 various artists. the release starts with the thomas hessler remix of “sut“ a track from the argentinian producer pfirter. thomas used the outer atmosphere bringing it to an upper tempo defining a groove made for the floors. norman nodge and his minimal trip from avion’s explosive track “thrill“. flimmering noises, a reduced drum and an atmosphere which is between lunatic and melancholic warmth. in ron albrechts remix of doka’s “mural“ the time is still running different, staying surreal wthout losing ist mood kicking off to move the floor. the automatic message lay their hands on stefan rein’s “amorphous material“ and stripped down the punchy and jacking atmosphere to a reduced version without losing its functionality and highlighting the characteristic synth pad to remain the smile factor of the original track.
