Das Spezial: Sifar The Remixes 12″ EP

Das Spezial keeps a low profile, but they’ve released a considerable amount of music since 2019, and they’ve gotten some well-regarded names to remix their tracks. For this remix EP, they hand three tracks from last year’s Sifar off to Low Jack, Bruce, Lakker, and Etch. Low Jack’s “Kefi” is a slow, lurching crawler with more gun sounds than percussion. Bruce somehow takes the same song and turns it into a faster, chirpier disco-tech track which ends up much cuter than expected. Lakker dos a sort of detached yet charging mix of “Nyctophile”, with nebulous synths flowing around a clicking broken beat pattern, and machine glitches lightly fizzing around. Etch’s “Blazemoche” has a slow-motion forward momentum clearly drawing from drum’n’bass, but remains lurking in the shadows instead of brocking out on the dancefloor.
