DESCRIPTION
 

Freerange welcomes Italian via Berlin producer/DJ/label boss Enzo Elia for
his debut on the label entitled The Lost Guitar Tapes. Enzo is someone
who has been releasing consistently great music for many years, although
often hidden behind a myriad of pseudonyms and underground imprints. For
starters he’s responsible for a mysterious yet established and very
excellent edits label as well as being a member of Balearic Gabba Sound
System alongside Bjorn Torske amongst others. Following the philosophy of
this collective, Enzo is also producing lovingly and respectfully created
re-edits of long lost techno and house tracks as well as many new tunes
for influential labels including Golf Channel and Compost.
But for now we turn to The Lost Guitar Tapes and specifically the original
mix of Drifting which opens up the release with a brilliant tension
builder. A rolling bassline, crisp minimal drums and a subtly Middle
Eastern-influenced melodic line give just a hint of mysticism to this
jewel of a track.
For the remix we have none other than the Tel Aviv via Berlin producer
Moscoman, fresh from his brilliant debut LP on ESP Institute and releases
on Eskimo and his own Disco Halal label. Moscoman’s organic, percussion-
heavy sound and Middle Eastern roots make him the perfect choice to take
on Drifting and we couldn’t have wished for a better outcome. He manages
to inject his own identity to the track with newly recorded live guitar
and bass parts and taking in elements of techno, new wave and house, he’s
created a sublime piece of dancefloor drama.
Finally we have an alternate Dub version which lays down a firmer four on
the floor, extra percussion and dubby stabs for a more driving atmospheric
club tool.
