#3 | Jaap Ligthart – I Know Change (SHOW-B Remix) | Selador | Out Now |
SHOW-B‘s remix for Jaap Lightharts ‘I Know Change’ was one of the tracks which ruled DGTL Festival a few weeks ago. The original – which is pure Deep House goodness, in every sense of the word, showcases Jaap’s diversity in production. SHOW-B keep the melodies a little more minimal and roll out the percussions. This interpretation is tougher, and keeps things darker in a more visceral aspect, in that, the atmospheric aura surrounding the original are seemingly not as prominent in this remix.
#2 | Ruede Hagelstein – Apophenia | Watergate | Out Now |
Apophenia represents the human tendency to seek patterns in random information in general. The same goes for Ruede Hagelsteins same titled LP. Only the Berlin based producer based this concept on music. A limited supply of instruments, VST Plugins, analog synthesizers and the fixed rate of 123 BPM and you have a splendid LP.
