04. Marcello – &ME Remix
Slowly but surely, a constellation of young artists have expanded around Ali, Basti, Philipp “Santé”. In the night, they share the same decks thanks to the newly created Souvenir Booking entity. During the day, they swap beats and samples in the studio of Tiefschwarz located in Prenzlauer Berg, building up a new creative energy, which is giving birth to the 23rd release of Souvenir on vinyl.
Adam Port, Re.You and Rampa, already had their own shines this year on Souvenir. Now, it´s the turn of &ME (Front Room, Keinmusik) and Fischer & Kleber to release a new must-have record permeated with the best groove coming from the German capital city.
On the A-side, &ME brilliantly hurts with Bleed. He punches on the left with an unstoppable drum, weaves on the right with an hypnotic loop, that stirs mental alertness up, barks his anger with a digital “Whouah” going fast and forward and compelling any dancer to incredible footwork. Knocked Out!
Robert Fischer & Niklas Kleber had in common an electronic liveact “Discokonzentrat” (High `N´Rising records) and a band “Spurv Laerke” before bringing in their new project, Fischer & Kleber. They set with Berki on the flipside the singular but no less enjoyable soundscape of a cathedral under construction. Lightening up with deeply felt and almost religious whispers, the shrilling noises of computer-generated machine-tool, the mechanical and cold precision of a pitched down digital rock-drill, the duo turns “Berki” into a canticle of the new Millennium.
Added as bonus digital to the package, Marcello, also signed by Fischer & Kleber, juggles with the vibes of a funky organ, the infected groove of brass instruments and the dizzying melodies of a harmonica for what should be a perfect take for after party. &ME let the drums rolling on his remix but add it a distinctive tech-house touch, which made of Marcello a powerful weapon for peak-time.
