Chris Finke is a DJ, producer & broadcaster from the UK. He runs the Flux Recordings label and has held a long term residency at the UKs biggest and beat loved techno party "Atomic Jam".
The list of people he has worked with is endless; just to name a few: including Joey Beltram, Ben Sims, Mark Broom, Paul Woolford, A Guy Called Gerald.
“Dance of Death” is a stunning example of the revival and rise of splendid UK techno.
His original mix is a true night stalker, a suburban techno track... a mixture of post Detroit feeling and modern UK techno.
The remixes worked within these parameters, each of them doing it different.
So we see Valmay’s remix in a continuation of what he has done 2011with his stunning release on legendary label Blueprint. Valmay filters down elements, twisting them, making them even more mystical, blurring sounds and on top providing them with a nice “slapping” forward going beat. We think this is very nice indeed.
Frank Juncaj aka DJ 3000 was born and raised in the Detroit enclave of Hamtramck, has recorded numerous release as well as a full length album on Submerge Recordings and has released a split EP on the precious, hard to get “Somewhere in Detroit” label, in- house label of Submerge/Underground Resistance.
He has collaborated with artists such as Gary Martin, Gerald Mitchell, and Ursula Rucker as well as being part of numerous remix projects for artists across the globe, and has remixed "People are People" for Depeche Mode. His remix of “Dance of Death” works very much through a funky distorted heavy bassline and percussion not unlikely the ones we know from Gigi Galaxy.
To call his remix an exotic “funk monster” would be one way of putting it, but more than that it puts a smile on the face of the dancer.
Last but not least we are glad to include Justin Berkovi on Trapez again. Berkovi has been a big inspiration to Riley Reinhold boss of the label Trapez who played of his releases at Tresor in the past and had Berkovi remix Roland M. Dill a while ago.
Berkovi’s remix is a nice blend of deep string arrangements and slashing beats and through that creates that friction we like so much in techno music.
Release date: 10th October 2011
