Boomkat Product Review:
Purest ambient house lushness from Belgium, 1992 resurfacing on Young Marco’s label for maximum body gurn effect
After the main course of Trans-4M’s ’Sublunar Oracles’ album (and the ‘Arrival / Amma’ 12”), comes the remix dessert of ’Sublunar Oracles Remixes’, where the Antwerp siblings Dimitri & Stefan van Elsen rework their own tracks with a infectious deep house/garage flex and padded ambient touch.
‘The two mixes of ‘Dencity’ are unmissable, offering the pendulous deep garage tuck and parry of their ‘Urban Tribe Mix’ (for disambiguation; not Sherard Ingram) and scalp-tingling ‘Club Mix’ reinforced with insistent breaks and pads to dead sexy effect, while the album’s balmy original appears in a woozier alternative mix.
The Manual Göttsching/Italian dream house worship of ‘Butterflies’ is however exclusive to the set, and bookends it with the rolling, saucer-eyed wonder of ‘Arrival’ Remix)’ and the levitating ambient techno of ‘Amma (Moon Mix).’
