about

Having released their debut full-length IN TECHNICOLOR (Kompakt 279) to universal acclaim earlier this year, COMA's Marius Bubat and Georg Conrad are pleased to present IN TECHNICOLOR REMIXE: the second 12" for the album after primer MY ORBIT (Kompakt 278) features the considerable talents of TERRANOVA, ROOSEVELT and ZOMBIES IN MIAMI, who each deliver powerful reworks of their favorite tracks, resulting in a fine collection of highly varied cuts ready to ignite the dance floor of your choice.

Starting with angular stomper OUT OF CONTROL, masters of horizontal thrust TERRANOVA prove once again to be at the top of their game, delivering a suspenseful remix of the brightly colored original which turns out to be a more than thankful source of inspiration. Recasting the piano in a more dramatic fashion than its predecessor and bundling its beats for bigger impact, this version displays a gratifyingly relentless focus on the floor and engages the listener in an enthralling game of cat-and-mouse between the percussion and its melodic counterparts.

One of the most expressive cuts of IN TECHNICOLOR gets a deserved club update with album collaborator ROOSEVELT's revamp of LES DILETTANTES. Originally a slightly no-wavey narrative sporting the idiosyncratic voicework of MIT's Edi Winarni, the track now pushes back its free-form properties for a heavily disco-infused work-out driven by exquisite hooks and a delibarately jam-like mentality. Edi's singing remains largely unchanged, but reveals unexpected glamour within the new context, making this an appropriately flashy addition to IN TECHNICOLOR REMIXE.

The 12" closes with ZOMBIE IN MIAMI's take on CYCLE, one of IN TECHNICOLOR's most epic renditions: the illustrious duo takes its straight-faced elation and turns it on its head with a blend of sun-bleached guitar licks, heavy-duty beats and a well-dosed serving of peyote-laced synths. The somewhat romantic sensibilities found in the original get a seriously saturnine overhaul, therefore developing a menacing quality that never fails to thrill the unsuspecting crowd. It's a perfect conclusion to an enticingly polymorph collection of reworks that may take to the floor from different angles, but always find their respective ways to the epicenter of the action.
