Taken from Audiofly’s debut album ‘Follow My Liebe’, the long-awaited passion project that referenced all shades of the duo’s production spectrum, ‘6 Degrees’ is a heavenly slice of melancholic electronic pop featuring the gorgeous vocals of Berlin based Fiora.
Vocals are an integral part of the brilliant LP, providing its most affecting, personal moments. Album favourite ‘6 Degrees’, featuring Fiora is a shining example of Audiofly’s fluid, electronica house style with Fiora’s ethereal voice carrying depth and eerie soul. It’s the second album cut to undergo the remix treatment, this time receiving unique re-tweaks from Booka Shade and Tale Of Us and there’s a package forthcoming with Martin Buttrich, and Guti taking the reigns.
Get Physical veterans Booka Shade lead the way with their signature sparkling electronic tones and sound quirks. Over a one-note melody that thrums and thickens, synch chords develop into a hypnotic rhythmic progression. Voices heave, slow to a crawl and are dragged backwards as liquid sounds bubble, and swirling sounds quickly spiral to a peak. As it blossoms into a cut-up chorus melody, it’s clear that the genre masters are rewriting electrohouse into a sleek and modern sound for 2011. Tale Of Us isolate a faraway snare, and drench it with layers of reverb and sinister synth pads, creating an eerie, sombre atmosphere. Moving closer to the original, the newcomers’ remix unfolds with its infections melodic progression. By dialling down the bass and bringing the vocals to the fore,
Tale of Us (presently lighting up the Visionquest label) draw heavily on their electronic pop roots, but keep it just left of centre by shrouding everything in mists and echoing noises, to devastating effect.
