Not just a beloved pair of artists come back to our ranks for this ERM128 – Ki Creighton & Makanan – but another two really huge DJs and producers have granted us the honour of remixing the duo. Paco Osuna and Yousef join elrow Music’s roster of remixes with their own reinterpretation of this ‘Lucid Dream EP’, a four tracker EP with two originals by the pair and the two high-rolling remixes that starts with the track naming the EP.
‘Lucid Dreams (Original Mix)’ is an interesting work by Ki Creighton &Makanan, full of techy vibes, strong, tight percussion, a nice synth treatment that goes along the track and a remarkable vocal line by Shyam P. Paco Osuna reinterprets this track – ‘Lucid Dreams (Paco Osuna Remix)’ – giving it a techno twist, with a minimalist and repetitive progression, making an amazing use of the vocal line, turning the track into a total dancefloor killer thanks to the master use of the strings and the silence in certain moments of the track.
Then we have ‘Black Heart (Original Mix)’, a steadier and faster track in which Ki Creighton & Makanan make a great use of some bass sounds and wooden instruments, all combined with a great set of vocals that deepen the track along its overall vibe, closer to stronger and steadier rhythms, with a core progression that will tear up some dancefloors here and there. Finally, closing the EP is ‘Black Heart (Yousef Circus Rework)’, in which Circus’ boss, Yousef, makes a more light-hearted track, with a techier progression, that comes closer to the house sound than the other tracks in this EP, deepening the vocal line, creating a clear breakdown by the middle of the song, and making this the most festive track of the bunch.
All in all, an amazing work by Ki Creighton & Makanan, that make a huge comeback to the label, that is rounded up by the astonishing reworks of two of the current heavyweights of the scene, Paco Osuna & Yousef. One of our most complete EPs to date! Don’t miss it!
