Manhooker & Snax - Cloud 9 (Justus Köhncke Remix) by Sonar Kollektiv published on 2013/08/29 08:00:37 +0000 The seventh episode of the Based On Misunderstanding series is a true show-stopper! Last summer the ultra hot duo Manhooker (Tomasz - Guiddo' Switala and Sebastian - Mavin' Magassouba) hooked up in their studio with Snax (Paul Bonomo and 1/2 of Captain Comatose) to crank out some new jams; the first being this veritable late summer hit, 'Cloud 9.' Their first 12inch on Ostgut Ton caused such a burst of enthusiasm, and the hype will only be fueled with this release. This is pop music at its best with lots of soul for the more sophisticated dance floors. We can't think of a more appropriate remixer for this sensitive tune than Justus Köhncke. The Cologne based producer aims more directly to the club, but doesn't take the soul nor Snax' captivating synth solo out of the track. It's another magnum opus in Köhnckes already superior portfolio of remixes. On the flipside we got a 'Special Deal.' Here you can hear Snax' presence even more boldly as his affection for 80's electro-funk meets the adorable soul of Mavin's voice. Would 'Cloud 9' not already be a stupendous stand-out track, you'd have to speak of 'Deal' as the definite sure shot. Airplay guaranteed! For the - M1 Space Dub' version Manhooker used the legendary Patch #17, Organ 2 of the Korg M-1 (of Robin S' - Show Me Love' fame from 1990), spreading this way some magic dust on the track to make it even deeper. And then we have one of the best DJs from Brazil added to the game. Marcio Vermelho from Sao Paolo is widely known by now across the borders of South America for his stylistically confindent mix of Nu Disco, Boogie, Funk and sentimental house. This right here is one of his first official remixes but it won't be his last one, that's for sure!
