Following Dany Rodriguez’s debut album, ‘Galaxies Compared’ released on RMR in September is the ‘Galaxies Compared Remixes EP’ featuring reworkings by Ben Long (Space DJz) and German Techno legend Alexander Kowalski, as well as an exclusive new track by Dany.
Recording now for over a decade, Belgium’s Dany Rodriguez has released a series of EPs for labels such as Kombination Research, MBR, Bush, MB Elektronics, Destination, Bulletdodge, Phobiq and his own RMR label, where his techno and electronic sound has developed and flourished, culminating in his recent long-player.
This remix EP opens with two interpretations of Dany’s album track ‘November’ by Ben Long who has been concentrating on solo work more recently with EPs on labels like Restructured, GND and EPM Music. His first remix raises the tempo of the original into a tougher techno groove while still maintaining its delicate strings and melody, while his second version layers its blissful tones over a broken beat with a hint of electro styling.
From his beginnings as DisX3 on Tresor to a host of EPs and albums for Kanzleramt, Alexander Kowalski has built a high reputation for elegantly fusing elements from classic Detroit and the historical Berlin techno sound. Here he takes the shimmering title track from Dany’s album and turns in a crunching, high-octane dancefloor workout that dives in and out of its many layers.
To complete the package Dany Rodriguez delivers ‘Find The Way’, a new track that’s exclusive to the remix EP yet fits perfectly with the deep, spaced-out appeal of ‘Galaxies Compared’.
