Loco Dice’s album ‘7 Dunham Place’ on Desolat got remixed by Luciano, Mike Huckaby, Cassy, DJ Sneak, Marcel Dettmann, Marco Carola and Onur Özer – a very strong line-up of producers with a wide arrangement of styles and attitude.

It seems though as the second part of the remix series has a better focus and a more processed sound, contrary to the first one, which seemed a bit rushed production wise. The styles are more clear and varied.

You can probably guess which tracks are my favorites on this release. In context they fit very well together with Carola’s jacking and reduced micro house groove and Onur Özer’s deep and haunting wall of sound.

Dettmann’s ‘responses’ has a extremely well produced sound, which has his unique style but seems much more refined and a bit different from his previous work. For a producer who is always experimenting and refining his sound this shouldn’t come as a surprise – indeed it does!

The A1 is a slower piece with subtle variations going on in the background, combined with Marcel’s restructured and phased vocals that almost become instruments themselves. Berghain bleeps and a thick and drowning sound sums up the track and the emphasis is on the groove that slowly errupts in the background. The second ‘response’ is a hard hitting and darker version that keeps the beat in a locked sense and is closer to Dettmann’s classic funk.

Huckaby’s clever remix is a fast rolling Detroit groove, keeping a steady variation and horizontal energy throughout.

Heavy release!
