Andre Kronert’s seminal EXU EP gets a comprehensive rework from some of the most outstanding on the scene. Tense and sinister new cuts from Kronert introduce both sides of the release, whilst the label calls upon remixes from Berlin mainstays Efdemin and Ed Davenport, as well as Hollands finest export Juan Sanchez, plus Stockholm LTD label boss Pär Grindvik alongside fellow Swede Peder Mannerfelt.
Retaining the slurred vocal of the original, Efdemin layers thundering effects over chasmic bass in his mix of Into The Zone, which saw heavy rotation last year. Meanwhile Davenport brings a wild yet streamlined intensity to C.O.D.E.2. Side B sees Grindvik team up with Mannerfelt to provide a joint interpretation of Into The Zone, which they manipulate into a peak-time epic, with a soaring melody over hammering toms. Finally, Juan Sanchez channels funk through Roll The Dice with a twitchy, groove-laden rework.
The spirit of EXU is made physical once again via 12 inches and 27 minutes of wax. First pressing in very limited red 180g vinyl.
