Happy Anniversary, Keinemusik!
Nov. 17 marks the release date of the Berlin collective’s Workparty Five EP, which will be available on double vinyl with a specially designed gatefold cover. That second piece of vinyl is part of the anniversary celebration: It’s a bonus disk that features an exclusive Keinemusik remix of each track.
Each of the crew’s producing members (Adam Port, David Mayer, Rampa, and &ME) contributed a tune and the result is a wonderfully crafted blend of deep and tech house. The infectious synth-vs-percussion battle of “Mod” opens up the EP, followed by the minimal, drum-fueled “Smoke”. The urgent groove and tribal drumwork of “Birdland” will certainly urge bodies onto the dancefloor, while a classic, hands-in-the-air-at-5am vibe pervades “Place,” which features Stereo MC’s. I know…pretty happy about this one.
