Right in time for the summer of 2014, Paul Kalkbrenner surprises us with a brand-new remix album. Eight years after his 2006 Reworks CD which showcased brilliant remixes of that part of his career, Paul Kalkbrenner presents X with reworks from his latest albums Berlin Calling (BPC 185CD), Icke Wieder (PKM 002CD/LP) and Guten Tag. The selected crew of remixers is staffed by long-time personal friends and other related artists out of Paul Kalkbrenner's world of music. To keep it in the Kalkbrenner family, his brother Fritz Kalkbrenner delivers excellent new vocals for "Kruppzeug's" transformation into a classic house track while Paul's wife Simina Grigoriu refines the techno track "Kleines Bubu." The French techno legend Vitalic presents his remix for the Berlin Calling classic "Altes Kamuffel" while Joris Voorn hands over his hit-tune deep house interpretation of "Jestrüpp." The Berlin school of techno & house gets represented by Format:B, Housemeister from the Boys Noize camp and the legendary Maertini Broes, consisting of Mike Vamp and the E-Werk veteran DJ Clé. Also hailing from Berlin are Pan-Pot, who have been 2013 world tour buddies with Paul Kalkbrenner. They deliver a well-produced big room version of the 2011 hit single "Das Gezabel," Impressive in a similar way is Cab Driver's remix of "Globale Gehung" from the Guten Tag album. Another musical highlight is the Robag Wruhme remix of the massive tune "Sky & Sand," which is a completely new and unique approach to the Berlin Calling classic. The Mallorca-based duo Pig & Dan rounds out this great Paul Kalkbrenner remix package with their tech-house production of the Icke Wieder opening track "Böxig Leise." Comes in a jewel-case with a 14-page Leporello booklet.
