Claude Von Stroke, Yousef and Wes Wieland step up to remix Booka Shade for the first in two remix packages of the duo’s recently released ‘Cut The Strings’ LP, which dropped on their Blaufield imprint in April. The duo have reached out to some of their contemporaries and fellow artists they admire to revisit and provide their own interpretations of the EP.
Dirtybird’s main man Claude Von Stroke steps up to rework ‘Easy Drifter’ first, delivering driving bottom end, growling bass leads and heady acid swells alongside the original’s arp line.
Circus founder Yousef turns in his take on ‘Tyrell’ next, opting for pulsating pads, oscillating bass sweeps and organic drums alongside the original’s choppy pitch bending vocal cuts.
Wes Wieland’s take on ‘Black Crystal’ then completes the package with a darker edge, this time round laying focus on expansive reverberated percussion, elongated bass drones and twinkling arpeggios.
The Booka Shade ‘Cut The Strings Album Remixes 1’ package is out on Blaufield 25th May 2018.
