Marmion - Schöneberg (Hell-Remix) by Mijk van Dijk published on 2010/06/23 09:13:12 +0000 After a few years respite, we‘ve dusted off the plates of Marmion‘s inimitable classic, ‚Schöneberg‘, and can now proudly present the 12‘‘ arm of an incredibly strong new package of remixes. The original hit us for the first time in 1993, on Superstition Records, and now we‘re graced by this 12‘‘ featuring remixes by none other than DJ Hell, Abe Duque and Donnacha Costello. Rocking the A side, Hell‘s staccato-tronic, urgent re-think fuses solid state drums, classic wild-pitching sentiments and tonnes of energy in a frenetic yet reduced electronic jam! Opening up and freaking out into a skipping, bass driven funk tool the unmistakable tones of the original pulse through as an emotional climax awaits! NYC powerhouse Abe Duque hands in his tougher remix with more than a healthy nod to the old-school acid days that saw his name grow exponentially. Pumping and pushing, a low filtered bass groove opens his interpretation while a second wave of bass pressure hits us as the vintage percussion works the floor. Drama! Finally Irish legend Donnacha Costello winds up the 12‘‘ with a very moody and typically emotionled foray into classic meets modern electronics. Spacious, tense and building from the very offset, Costello creates a unique mood in this beautifully treated remix, whose subtle Plastikman-esque undertones and rich string sequences keep us guessing! More new stunning remixes will follow shortly.
