Following the release of his ‘New Day’ LP in 2015, Satoshi Tomiie assembles a number of respected producers for remixes, including Maayan Nidam, Fred P, Ron Trent, Dj Sneak, and more.
Reflecting on a longstanding career and a myriad of accolades that make him one of house music’s most celebrated protagonists, Satoshi Tomiie could easily rest on his laurels, however the credible Japanese producer continues to raise the bar. His ‘New Day’ album saw the renowned artist present twelve effervescent tracks; a refreshing musical milestone that demonstrates a pristine side to the established producer.
Whilst a handful of the remixes have already been released as vinyl only samplers via Abstract Architecture, the full remix album sees the addition of Maayan Nidam, Hugo LX and Pablo Mateo, as well as alternative versions by Ron Trent and Dj Sneak.
Perlon’s Maayan Nidam provides two different renditions of ‘New Day’; her Saturated remix is a showcase of intricate sound design, unravelling a medley of percussive details alongside syncopated kicks, vocal murmurs and soothing chords, whereas her Eggshells remix is gloomier in comparison, with its sullen bassline and ethereal synths.
Esoteric French producer Hugo LX then reimagines ‘Momento Magico’ into a jazz heavy cut with profound chords and infectious closed hats, before Berlin’s Pablo Mateo – who’s been making waves with releases on Uncage and Die Orakel – provides his own mesmerising take on ‘New Day’.
Dj Sneak’s adaptation of ‘0814’ exhibits his signature bumpy groove with solid drums and an infectious rhythm, whilst Ron Trent’s refined reconstruction of ‘Thursday, 2am’ stays true to his reputation as one of the true masters of deep house with its smooth and compelling aesthetic.
