Anjunabeach (Original Mix)
Imagine a volcanic eruption that rips the world apart, & you have some tangible idea of how it feels to listen to this Maggipinto cherry on the Vol 7 Terracina cake. After an eon crawling up Everest with an equal chance of death, this burlywood burn bursts with aurigraphic pads nestled amongst a synth more mysterious than DNA is now, wrapped up with menacing, kicking piano pungent beyond belief. The first instrumental single from A&B demonstrates well why 'duskiness' is an anagram of 'sunkissed'.
Anjunabeach (Nitrous Oxide Remix)
Pretkiewicz has two types of remix: stunning original, & lazy conversion to his style. This is the latter.
Anjunabeach (Jerome Isma-Ae Remix)
You can count Jerome Carnifex Isma-Ae's contributions to humankind on one finger. It isn't this vacuum of effort.
Anjunabeach (Genix & Las Salinas Remix)
How often should revisits happen? Constantly. One example is this triad's 2014 delirium, from mainstay Houchen & his close friends, the duo Las Salinas, not heard from since. Their electrotrash is as addictive as it is ingenious, but nothing compares to the way they surpassed the OM, which was 'surpass' as a song, cubed, cubed, cubed.
The synth, piano, & other tune from five years ago are all here, but there's an innovation upon them, & not just the progressive house style. The climax is a jungle, impenetrable & inescapable, the law & the king being the new addition: a tanin-cake of a journey from the top, to the bottom. It might not sound like much, but it is the Sun & moon to me, & all the planets too.
