The Berlin based label Rekids established in 2006 by Matt Edwards (Radio Slave) is a highly-regarded label for all things 4x4, and features releases from heavyweights such as Nina Kraviz, Carl Craig and Josh Wink. Here, returning with their 4th release for 2017, Rekids presents an elegant project from the promising producer Patrick Conway with the eminent Pangaea on remix duty.
In his own words the music on this EP was inspired by “transcendental meditation, UK rave, Sheffield bleep/Warp records, Carl Craig circa the early 90s …” you get the idea - an EP which is built on the raw substance of the UK's electronic music scene. The title track Sandy Lane boasts a retro vibe as if it was plucked straight from the 90’s, its waning pads comatose you just before the undulating drums bring you back to reality. Orbit takes its place on the B side presenting complex breaks, eerie synths and dreary jingles in supernatural style. To complete the set Pangaea reshuffles Patricks track Orbit with a far heavier and bass orientated remix. As expected Pangaea’s remix offers a percussively orientated track enthused with a throbbing bassline and an effervescent lead, an excellent record to satisfy an off-kilter dancefloor.
