Jorkes presents Sweet Dreams Remixes
Following the success of Jorkes's Sweet Dreams on the influential Live At Robert Johnson label, a wealth of innovative electronic talents all serve up their own remixes.
German-born but Austria-based Jorkes runs the Freeride Millenium label with her muse, lover, and partner Daniel Rajcsanyi aka ParisBöhm. Her provocative work centralizes gender, queer and egalitarian attitudes, and her Sweet Dreams EP showed the many different sides of her sound.
It is Radio8000 and Romantica club resident ParisBöhm who offers a first remix of "CDEvaLo". It's slow and sensuous, with intimate spoken word vocals and lithe synths while the bubbling melodies add color. Next up is Ukraine-born but Berlin-based Alinka, whose hard-hitting sounds have come on the likes of Rekids and Crosstown. Her version of "Sweet Dreams" is uplifting and glossy with busy arps rising up over prickly drums. Acid gurgles add extra texture to this classy floor filler.
Freeride Millenium associates Snecker aka Panorama Bar resident DJ nd_baumecker and musician, singer, songwriter, producer, performer DJ Snax tackle the same track. In their hands, it becomes a steamy house cut with floating synth motifs and crisp claps over a tantalizing beat that never stops building.
ROTCIV is another Freeride Millenium artist who has a cultured and colorful sound built on alternating arpeggios, automated synth melodies, and weird vocals. His remix of "You Will Be Mine" is a zoned-out vocal disco chugger with a rugged bassline. The cosmic rays up top and silky arps help the whole track take off. Italian duo and accomplished disco queens Hard Ton are all about hi-nrg beats and screaming acid bass whenever they release on Freeride Millenium or the likes of Toy Tonics. They remix "You Will Be Mine" in typically high-impact fashion as crashing hits and drums pump the party underneath astral synths and libidinous vocals.
Experimental Berlin art trio New Hook then steps up to rework "Robot Lover" into something beautifully atmospheric and melancholic with thoughtful chords over nu-disco grooves. This package is completed with a final fantastic Form Remix of "CDEvaLo" that adds yet another perspective.
