Ben Klock | Remixes | o-ton 26
After Ben Klock’s debut album „One“ has been welcomed warmly by Techno land, here's a breath taking remix package expanding Ben’s spectrum to include even more nuances. The cast of Robert Hood, Regis & Function and Kenny Larkin truly leaves nothing to be desired.
Detroit master of Minimal Techno Rob Hood injects his very own sound into „Goodly Sin“: Here, a huge kick drum cheers for ultra accurate, crystal clear synth stabs and fragments of Elif Biçer voice, turning the song oriented original into a massive Techno stomper with swiveling hips – first class a-side material.
On the flip, Regis & Function (aka Sandwell District) prove once again that they are the first choice when it comes to rhythmically challenging Techno. Their rework of „Subzero“, originally released on Klock’s „Before One“ EP, clearly shows the duo is one of the links between Techno and Dubstep at the moment. Their take on surgical, crisp and cold latenight Techno also stands in the tradition of the old Chain Reaction and Downwards school.
Last but not least, Kenny Larkin has gone for the other Klock Track featuring Elif Biçer’s voice, „OK“. Compared to the original, his remix goes into the thick of things. The bulky beat and dramtically longing strings are caressed by sweet piano patterns making for the quiet centre of this outstanding track. As far as we’re concerned, Mr. Larkin delivers once again.
