SALES NOTES

After gaining widespread acclaim for its original release four years ago, Smek by Tunisian duo Ÿuma will be reimagined with a bespoke remix package. Releasing on Crosstown Rebels, Ricardo Villalobos, SIS and MoM will be on duty to provide three distinctive remixes of the original.

Ricardo Villalobos leads the charge. Highlighting the signature sound with which he has become best known, Ÿuma’s hypnotic vocals converge on stripped-back kicks whilst subtle pads sing gently in the background. SIS’ remix comes next, blending tribal-laced drums with gentle acoustic guitar tones as whispering hats shimmer softly throughout, before MoM closes proceedings on a more ambient note, retaining the original’s folk-themed essence with emotive, slow-building percussion.

Ricardo Villalobos has been at the forefront of electronic music for over two decades. An eminent figure in the minimal techno sphere, releases on Perlon and his own Sei Es Drum helped cement his standing as one of the genre’s true heavy-hitters. Burak Sar AKA SIS is another of the minimal scene’s most long-standing artists. Notable productions in the form of Trompeta and Nesrib were swiftly picked up by Groove Magazine, who went on to vote him ‘Producer Of The Year’ for Nesrib and award him ‘Track Of The Year’ for Trompeta. Spanish-born MoM has garnered a reputation for sonic storytelling thanks to his bespoke approach to music, with releases on Still vor Talent, DeNature and a collaboration with Burning Man regular Acid Pauli further establishing his unique
and varied sound.
