After Quenum’s debut album, the richly textured and atmospheric masterpiece ‘Face To Face’, Serialism prepares to release a striking remix package featuring three distinct voices in electronic
music. ‘Basic Solution”s raw fluid energy is encased in a pulsing, staccato framework by Cesare Vs Disorder as the meandering bassline emerges and gives way to the original distorting synth line.
5AM is first given a more pumping dancefloor sheen by Tiefschwarz and next a typically epic and mindbending journey from Mathew Jonson. Lastly Frank Haag delivers a spooky rework of ‘Ritual’ that tightens the groove into a rolling hypnotic head trip that will also move the floor.
