SOUL MACHINE REMIXES
Next up on D-EDGE is a remix single package featuring Ney Faustini, Andre Lodemann and Kyodai. The source material for the EP is tracks from Renato Ratier’s excellent SoulMachine release from last year.
Up first is Buzzing Fly and Freerange deep house hero Andre Lodemann. The German is known for his long and classy tracks and this take on ‘Soul Machine’ one is no different. He transforms it into a growling, down low slow burner with icy hi hats and growing bassline that eventually consumes the whole track and a funky riff joins it.
Next up, São Paulo born Ney Faustini is a DJ, producer and activist in the Brazilian underground music scene, as well as being a resident at the legendary D-Edge club. His remix of ‘Old factory’ is laced with swirling pads and silvery percussive lines as well as an angelic synth sound and plenty of soul elevating drums. Its elegant and well balanced and will mark a high point in anyone’s set.
Kyodai gained respect from musical heavy weights like Masters At Work, Jimpster, Gilles Peterson, Rainer Trüby, and they regularly release under a variety of different names for labels such as Compost, Odori, Om, Lovemonk. Their remix of Soul Machine’ is a more direct and energetic tech house cut for the peak time on the dancefloor.
This is another carefully considered package from D-EDGE that ticks all the right boxes.
