    Following the release of ‘Watergate 15 mixed by Kerri Chandler’, Watergate Records offer up a vinyl sampler, featuring the exclusive new material on the comp from the man himself, and remixes from Voyeur, La Fleur and Lola Purple & Maine.

    Kerri Chandler has been one of the most prominent names in electronic music for over three decades now, so it was no surprise to see him enlisted for the reputable Watergate compilation series this year, following mixes from the likes of Sebo K, Ellen Alien, Tiefschwarz and Solomun. Here the imprint drops a vinyl sampler of fresh Chandler material made for the compilation, with some stellar remixes from some rising artists thrown in for good measure.

    First up is ‘Mama feat. Jerome Sydenham’, which takes on a classic Kerri format of swinging rhythms, a cosseting chord sequence, jazz-tinged low-end and piano lines, and Sydenham’s spoken word vocal stylings. ‘Think Of Something’ follows, upping the energy slightly with a gritty saw-wave bass hook, stabbing pad samples and an amalgamation of chopped and processed vocal snippets.

    Kerri’s protégés Voyeur step up on the first of the remixes, reworking ‘Mama’ into a groove-led number, fuelled by bulbous subs, loose percussion and an ever-evolving dynamism achieved through multilayered melodies. Rising star La Fleur turns in an interpretation of ‘Mama’ next, the Swedish producer tips the focus towards raw drums and penetrating bass, while smooth melodies brilliantly meander around them, creating a classy dance-floor focused workout. Then last up to round off the package is Manchester duo Lola Purple & Maine’s remix of ‘Think Of Something’, the pair deliver an intriguing remix very much unique to them, we see processed vocal snippets, growling bass, infectious hooks and warm pads all skillfully blended to create a stunning closing record.
