Christian Prommer’s album ‘Übermood’ was already remixed by Dinky, Alex Niggemann and Sascha Braemer earlier this year. Here comes another fine remix package, including the long awaited magnificent Jon Charnis Remix for Marimba, a gleamy peak-time monster remix by Animal Trainer and a splendid deep re-interpretation by Bugsy. Listen to the Full Premiere of Jon Charnis’ take on Marimba below.
After years of producing music under various guises, Jon Charnis found his true calling in the slower, darker, and deeper spheres of House music. The re-invention manifested beyond music as the former DC native relocated to the city of Los Angeles while launching his new moniker (his actual birth name). From then on it didn’t take long for him to make an impression. His track ‘Prophecy’ was spotted by Innervisions boss Dixon, who signed the track to his prestigious Berlin based label after road testing it at some of the world’s premier parties. He followed this up with an official remix of Art Department’s Burning Man anthem, ‘Robot Heart’ on No.19 records, a collaboration with production partners Lovecraft and Prab K. The streak continued with releases on more top labels including Supernature, All Day I Dream, and Leftroom Records.
Both children of the illustrious nightlife of trend capital Zurich, Adrian Flavor and Samy Jackson, aka Animal Trainer released their first tracks on Stil vor Talent in the form of ‘Talkshow’ in 2008. Since then, Animal Trainer have had releases on renowned labels such as Poker Flat, BEEF Records, FLASH, Dantze, as well as their own Hive Audio, on which they always strike a remarkable balance between tight grooves, infectious hooks and a whole lot of L.O.V.E.. Where other producers might rest on a well-tested formula, Adrian and Samy focus on remaining versatile, just like when DJing. Hence, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that lately the atmospheric ‘Sunday’ rubbed shoulders with peak time bomb ‘Krambambuli’ – perhaps even in one of their DJ sets.
Compost Black Label #122 will be released on the 10th of October on Compost Records.
