Hafendisko place the delicious disco of Lydmor & Bon Homme’s 'Dream of Fire' - a tune that bears worthy comparison to the aesthetic and pop sensibility of LCD Soundsystem - into the hands of a trio of mighty fine remixers.
Rising star Johannes Brecht deconstructs the source material, picking out a handful of elements to weave an intricate tapestry. It's a deep house treatment that fizzes deliciously, punctuated by brittle plucks and pizzicato and all the while conjuring up film noir images of dark alleyways and glistening puddles.
New Zealand/German duo Snacks bring a live feel to their funked-up jam version, plunging you into an exclusive 80s nightclub in some sultry, sophisticated, sun-kissed location. As if that wasn't enough, there's a full on analogue synth jam to round things off. Smooth.
Last up, Neville Attree (one half of Faded Ranger) keeps it simple. Over a slow, tub-thumping 4/4 kick, lush synths gather and crescendo luxuriantly - a rich, resounding conclusion to an inventive selection.
