KRAMNIK – DARK MATTERS REMIXES VOLUME 1
Ben Sims, Hernan Cattaneo & Martin Garcia, Gabriel Ananda and Franco Bianco & Mike Wall.
EDM master craftsman Kramnik will return soon with the release of his first full-length album, “Dark Matters”. Highly revered within the electronic music community, Kramnik effortlessly combines flawless production skills with a fearless approach to sampling throughout.
Progressive techno is the spinal cord of “Dark Matters”, with each track a journey through an atmospheric soundscape. Kramnik’s bulletproof understanding of the conventions of the genre has given him license to throw that rulebook out the window.
It is intensely cerebral work, music for the true connoisseur.
“Dark Matters” also comes with a hefty remix package based around the album’s most startling and brilliant tracks, Viclone, M1 and Mongolium.
Viclone bounced around the world and into the hands of some of today’s most exciting producers. Londoner Ben Sims, an old hand of the techno scene, creates a danceable and deceptively simple interpretation, replete with a lilting, syncopated midrange melody line. From Argentina, Hernan Cattaneo and Martin Garcia contribute a moody and bass-driven piece that keeps the most haunting samples of the original.
And from Germany, Gabriel Ananda steps up to the plate to deliver a glitchy and spacious track that shows exactly why he is a flag-bearer for the German techno sound. The EP also includes a remix from Franco Bianco & Mike Wall.
Dark Matters Remixes Volume 1 has got already massive support from, Sven Vath, Sasha, Luciano, Stephan Bodzin, Danny Howells, Nic Fanciulli, M.A.N.D.Y., Nathan Fake, Guy J, Paco Osuna, Luke Slater, Alan Fitzpatrick, Pig and Dan, Umek including some great media feedback from, DMC World, Beats and Beyond, Klubbers, Igloo Mag and Focus.
