"The Barcelona-Cologne-Express rides again: Alecs Marta is in charge this time, the bustling Catalan with the stinging glance. As one half of the Swat Squad he may prefer to wander about in the suburbs of ornamentation but on his own he always enters competition through the front door. He isn't the loitering kind of guy anyway, which shows quite clearly in 'Ramper': this track drives on rails, a well lubricated hybrid confronting light-hearted and bouncy friendliness with demanding clarity. It's casual and focused at the same time, just as we come to expect from the Catalans as the 'Spanish Germans.' Quite a coincidence then that the remix descends from the South of Germany, bearing the trademark sounds of its producer Patrick Zigon. The guy that made good tracks into great ones at Cocoon or Kling Klong condenses the airier original to some sort of nightly tour de force, procuring tightly shaved beats and one hell of a massive bassline blanking the sky like a solar eclipse. I do not wear my sunglasses at night anymore and here's the reason why."
