Powers of Ten Remixes

HERZ 051-3LP HERZ 051-3LP

Three 180-gram LPs in glossy triple-gatefold sleeve with download code. After the success of Powers of Ten (HERZ 050CD), Stephan Bodzin's 2015 full-length, the German tastemaker has now invited a key selection of artists to remix tracks from it. The original album was released on Bodzin's own Herzblut Recordings and was a hugely personal affair that has been played far and wide by DJs and danced to by clubbers all over the world. Things kick off with Ellum Audio co-owner Maceo Plex and Shall Ocin, who flip "Powers of Ten" into a serene and slow-burning track full of spiritual synth-lines and heavenly pads. Spanish pair Edu Imbernon and Coyu work their magic on "Wir" and reimagine it as a sumptuous and slow-burning tech track with a droning bassline and cosmic melodies. Influential Crosstown Rebels act Fur Coat tackle "Singularity" and cook up a brooding, elongated main-room track that locks the listener into its groove and never lets go. Long-time Bodzin collaborator and friend Marc Romboy makes "Ix" into a tense tech tool that balances on a knife-edge as menacing bass roams and rolls below. Cocoon team and live specialists Extrawelt make "Blue Giant" into a spooky minimal cut full of haunting atmosphere. Festival-headlining Second State pair Pan-Pot offer lots of tense groove and somber machine melodies on their version of "Zulu." A dark remix from Max Cooper, an intense synth jam from Agents of Time, a typically beautiful and musical offering from Dominik Eulberg, and remixes by Nicolas Masseyeff, D-Nox & Beckers, and Victor Ruiz are also included. This collection plays out almost like a mix, taking the listener up and down and through many different styles of electronic music, each as absorbing and essential as the next, and that's all thanks to the on-point and informed A&R of label boss Stephan Bodzin.
