Sean Turk continues to build his repertoire of first-rate remixes with a crafty redesign of the debut single from Los Angeles-based indie electronic singer/songwriter Phil Good. Based on the title alone – “Sleeping In” – it’s easy to see why Turk would choose to add it to his ever-expanding ‘bedroom bass’ discography.Phil Good’s original is very creatively arranged already, with a captivating vocal topline and a foot-tapping, head-bobbing rhythm constructed with just the right amount of swing. Turk utilizes a bouncy beat similar to the original, but tweaks the groove and the synth design subtly to fit his sensual style.One way to know that an artist is dedicated to creating a certain sound is when every creative choice fits it like a glove. In Sean Turk’s case, with this particular remix, the snare in the chorus is one of those features which could be said to be pronounced to the point of sticking out, but does so in a purposeful way that makes it relevant to the style at hand.Read More:Syence add to the ‘Chemistry’ of Steve Void and No MondaysStalking Gia – Second Nature (Sean Turk Remix) Free DownloadListen to The M Machine’s new single, ‘The Warehouse’
Nicole Moudaber and Skin of Skunk Anansie became a notable pairing in 2015 with the release of their Breed EP. Skin’s vocals proved a perfect addition to the grooving, hypnotic canvases Moudaber provided, creating a set of techno and deep house pieces that have since become some of the most beloved in the MOOD catalog.Aside from her collaborative work with Nicole Moudaber, Skin and the rest of Skunk Anansie also released an album of their own as 2016 commenced titled Anarchytecture. One of the album’s lead singles was the sinister-toned “Love Someone Else,” which follows the story of toxic lovers. The single has since been re-imagined by Nicole Moudaber, demonstrating once again how well both acts work together musically.Moudaber begins her reinterpretation of “Someone Else” with a peak time club piece led by incessant drums and a cunning, drawn-out note progression which amplifies the track’s chorus belted out by Skin. The re-work embodies the dark sound that has captured the ears of the underground community and elevated her to “queen” status by her fans.After starting off with intensity, the “Mood Edit” of the original takes it down a notch, painting a dissonant ambient soundscape dripping with the same synth progressions of the original remix yet lacking in percussion, making it a toned down, ethereal clip perfect for listening to outside of the club environment. Echo-y sound effects added to the Mood Edit tie the piece together, making it a clear standout from its techno counterpart.Both versions are available through Beatport.Read More:Techno Tuesday: Nicole Moudaber and Skin interview each other on new ‘Breed’ EPPan-Pot – Your Attention (Nicole Moudaber Remix)Nicole Moudaber and Skin unleash ‘Breed’ remix EP
