The now well established digital arm of Superfreq hits EP number 19 with a fine collaborative effort between Inxec and Julia Govor that takes us on a terrific trip to the outer regions of our galaxy. Derek Marin, Meandisco and Noel Jackson also all turn in fine remixes. As an ever rising, Inxec produces everything from his beloved house right through to heart breaking, thought inspiring mood sections that come on labels like this one and Leftroom, but that also get picked up for national radio plays in Germany. Russian Julia Govor, as well as being an on air personality for MTV, started DJing in legendary Moscow underground club Arma17 and has since played around the world as well as releasing on Visionquest and Get Physical.
The one original is a relatively slow, spacious and atmospheric track with a supple bass line roaming below gently tuning percussion. Chattering little samples, abstract synth sounds and skyward melodies all help make for a darkly cosmic vibe, and the whispered vocals that bleed into the track lend the whole thing a sense of emotive intimacy that drags you in yet further. The wealth of analogue textures and fizzing lines throughout will have your spine tingling and the hairs on your arms standing up, for sure. Frequent label star and drummer turned techno producer, Derek Marin turns in the first remix, and in doing so layers in more elastic bass lines and lively drums complete with horizon scanning synths. New Yorks Meanddisco then opts for an unsettling remix with bold synth stabs, dub techno chords and corrugated drums that really keeps you guessing, and finally Hypertone Records boss Noel Jackson excels with his crisp and crunchy, heads down and deeply groove based tech house remake. Each of the four versions here offer something different, with the original itself being a real jewel in Superfreqs ever more resplendent crown.
