Shinedoe returns with a killer remix package celebrating some of the
highlights of her well received Freedom Riders album. The LP
dropped towards the end of last year, winning plaudits for rich sound
design, sleek production and thoughtful concept. With this release
Shinedoe has selected four producers for their unique sound to
rework the originals into new shapes.
First up is LA’s Truncate (aka David Flores) who gives a new perspective
on Expressionisme - flipping it into a warm and groovy techno cut with lots
of nicely balanced vocals and trippy, dubbed out synths.
Ritzi Lee is next up with his take on Shine. The Amsterdam techno veteran
(Steve Liem) adds his own twist to one of the standout tracks from
Freedom Riders, producing a driving, restless groove stripped down to its
Elsewhere, Keith Carnal, another Dutch master, turns the previous single
Wake Up into a high energy peak time floor filler - firing percussion, trippy
grooves and huge white noise bursts ramp up the tension.
Finally, So It Is is reworked by Lawrence, whose signature deep and
dubby approach to techno results in a heady, hypnotic cut that is sure to be
a staple on more adventurous dancefloors.
