Following the release of his first solo album in eight years, French techno icon Laurent Garnier commissions a series of remixes of his 33 Tours Et Puis S’en Vont LP.
This summer, Laurent Garnier announced the launch of his latest landmark album. The newest LP showed why he is such a vital force with a series of cuts, distilling his 30+ year career experiences into cutting-edge electronic music full of tension and release. Now, he continues to prove he operates at the vanguard with this exemplary assembly of remixers.
UK techno mainstay Works Of Intent opens up with his Farewell remix of Reviens La Nuit, a dark, pulsing techno sound with widescreen cosmic chords and unsettling modulations. Romantic techno master Voltaire then flips Tales From The Real World into a scintillant melodic excursion with arps cascading down the face of the track and fizzing synths lighting up the electro beats.
Next is 22Carbone, who is featured on the original album but here remix In Your Phase into a grimy, broken beat with rigid bars and twisted metal textures next to the menacing mic work. Rocco Rodamaal has 30 years of experience and is one of few veterans who remains genuinely relevant today. He offers two versions of Liebe Grüße aus Cucuron – a smooth, deep, elongated techno trip and a fizzing Keys Mix doused in melodic charm.
New York’s new wave techno star Anthony Cardinale, aka Avision, lights up his remix of Le Swing Du Pouletto with radiant and optimistic synths and a dark, brooding low end. Later, he brings plenty of marching menace and pent-up synth tension to his rework of Liebe Grüße aus Cucuron. Reshit‘s take on On the Record offers a dreamy ambient soundscape with downtempo breaks and expansive prog-rock style synths.
This sophisticated selection of techno remixes brings all-new emotions and moments of dance floor brilliance to Laurent Garnier’s superb originals.
