Title: Porchlight And Rocking Chairs Remixes Pt. 1
Release Date: 16th September (Vinyl) 23rd September (Digital) 2013
Cat No: FR184/FRD184
In March of this year we saw Jimpster’s Porchlight And Rocking Chairs LP fall on
expectant and eager ears, winning praise from the likes of RA, DJ Mag and
Groove as well as plays and support from a host of the worlds best radio and club
DJ’s. With the majority of the LP being more home listening than club-focused we
decided to call in some of our favorite producers to rework a track of their choice
for the dance-floors and here we present you the first part of the amazing results.
KiNK needs little introduction of course, except to say that his live set as well as his
hands on hardware approach in the studio has seen him become established as
one of the most exciting producers of the last couple of years. When he agreed to
remix Porchlight And Rocking Chairs (a track he incidentally referred to as his
favorite of the year!) we couldn’t have been happier and knew that something
very special would come from it. When he got in touch to say he’d done a version
but explained it was done live in one take with all the parts being tweaked in real
time making it very hard to change anything we were even more intrigued and
excited. As expected, what he delivered is an intense, high energy reworking full
of piercing high’s and rattling lows, keeping the original chords and many of the
keyboard lines in place but injecting a raw drive and improvised feel which has
already seen it become a highlight of Jimpster sets this summer.
Andre Lodemann provides the perfect antidote to KiNK’s frenetic version in the
form of his Towards The Seer Remix, going for a tight, emotive, late night groove
which develops slowly, teasing out the arrangement and keeping things sublime
and understated. Subtle bass twists and dubbed out FX build to the extended
break where we’re introduced to the original’s acoustic bass riff in all it’s glory.
Another brilliant Andre Lodemann production.
