Featuring 2 killer remixes and a bonus track, this is the addendum to an already powerful statement and reinvention of Mindelixir’s sound. To celebrate his Why I’m Easy EP, William Schimel has cleverly enlisted two red hot producers- heRobust, and Tokyo Hands, for reinterpretations, and they both bring a new perspective to the originals.
Schimel also drops another gem as a bonus track- the nearly 6 minute bass cannon workshop, “Get Up,” is an offering for the club with both muscle and dexterity. The track is full of surprises- subtle pitched toms descend before an unabashed saw tooth makes itself known over a cavalcade of ever changing 808 patterns. There are twists and turns in the composition, different voices come in and out to build a sense of narrative and momentum. Imagine a smoky club in the South, hot as hell, everyone dripping with sweat, wearing practically nothing, and you’re on your way to putting this track into words.
A virtual meteorite in the Trap and Bass scene lately, heRobust serves up a hefty banger with plenty of gorgeous synthwork and finely tuned edits of Schimel’s “Future.” Hayden Kramer is obviously gifted with the remix abilities and he’s put his soul into this one. Starting out like an updated Prince track, things get heavy in the low-end and funky on the chops. This melding of the minds is a must hear!
Tokyo Hands takes “Why I’m Easy” and strips it down to percussion, reverb, and bass. The claves rise and fall in pitch like chromatic hot air balloons that propel the track forward through an aquatic sky. Soundtrack for squid like workers at a far off water purification factory.
