Keinemusik is the musical project formed by the three techno heavyweights Rampa, Adam Port and &ME, who released their first collaborative album ’You Are Safe’ in 2017.
The new year has welcomed two remix EPs from high-rated artists such as DJ Tennis, Frankey & Sandrino and Black Coffee; the third installment of revisions, out now, features Solomun and Gerd Jenson‘s reworks of ‘You Are Safe’ and ‘Lover’.
Solomun is going for ‘You Are Safe’, once the beatless intro of the eponymous album, now an impelling and distinctive peak time weapon that arrives quite unexpectedly with a broken, Electro-ish prelude while the originals soundscape slowly unfolds. But don’t start the robot dance just yet, a pumping 4/4 beat architecture is right around the corner, also introducing the signature vocal theme. Check out the very crunchy sounding pre-break, the emphasis on staccato percussion and the addition of various flashy synths throughout the track, escalating within the last third of this mighty floor shaker.
‘You Are Safe’ remixes pt. 3 by Keinemusik includes Solomun and Gerd Jenson.
Next in line is Gerd Janson‘s take on ‘Lover’, already a much-beloved piece on the album, done in liaison with Jennifer Touch, but a bit too short to properly place it into a DJ set. That won’t be a problem anymore, as Janson delivers a disco-tinged extension of the tune, including an organic, punchy drum arrangement, frequently heating up into snare drum frenzy and boosting drumrolls. Still, you’ll find most of the elements that turned the song into an 80ies affirming affair in the first place, the signature bass line and Jennifer’s synth contributions and unmistakable voice.
