Matt John – She´s Durch (Super Flu´s Stormy Road)

out of the Super Flu EP “Re:Dings” the Remix of Matt John – She’s Durch (She’s done).

What the Label has to say:

Pack your bags, grab your passport: Monaberry misters Super Flu have booked us seats on the Remix Express… And they’re first class. Just in case swathing through the mind-melting sonic swamp they call album writing, keeping up with the creative demands of running a label and the constant twists on the global DJ merry-go-round wasn’t quite enough… Super Flu have also curated this summer’s essential version excursion. You’d be wise to check-in… First we hit ‘Not Again’ where the deliciously treacle-like textures and slow-motion techno soul of emerging Bristol live act The Crisis Project are galvanised in precious metals. Shiny, smooth, unblemished; there’s a timeless, boundary-less sheen that could befit any era, any genre; just awe-inspiring electronic music. ‘She’s Durch’, a hazy plough through a Fear & Loathing-style sandstorm of ideas and emotions, the Halleian duo flip Berliner Matt John’s 25 poetic cosmic opus into a seven-minute aerodynamic odyssey that shrouds with poignancy. Lekker. Finally we experience the biggest trip of the adventure… Taking the 1998 cult German hip-hop classic by 5 Sterne Deluxe ‘Schund’ and completely rebuilding it into an absolute emotional whirlwind, it’s a breath-taking composition that will truly elevate and soften the toughest of crowds. With chem-trails of the vocal permeating through the gaps, this is beyond any standard understanding of remix conventions. The same can be said for each of these re-constructions: Three clear cases where the remix has been chosen simply because the artists love the music, know how to harness its strengths and feel they can add to its story with their own re-interpretation, respect and references. Remix trips as thoughtful as this are hard to find. Ready for take off?

Radio Hommage #72 – Sonnensysteme

Once upon a time there was a thing from another galaxy – Sonnensysteme landed on earth a thousand years ago and now it´s time to listen to what it wants to say! What we get is its very own interpretation of its world of music. A world to calm down. A world where everything is a bit slower as you knew it so far. A world where you can forget everything but the music in your head.

Quote by Reservior:

This is the start of a new series of podcasts / selections called “The Reservoir” whereby quite literally it is just playing anything and everything that is around me in my house whether it be 12″s, CD’s, mp3’s on the floor, on the laptop, on the shelf….you name it, it will be checked and searched!

On top of this there are no musical restrictions so expect anything and everything week in week out dependant on what is found. Past, present and future.

The music is quite literally just thrown together off the cuff for your enjoyment.

Welcome to “The Reservoir”
