having deviated from their usual procedure of delivering one track with a selection of remixes, go nogo’s recent e.p. new folks was the duo’s first original only-release. So here you go with a separate remix-selection from all the originals.
the first offering comes from the drummer of British electro-pop giants OMD, mal holmes who delivers a synth-poppy-catchy-as-catch-can rendition with a lustre, opening the gates to a wider audience. ummagma manage to put their shoegazerish stamp onto new folks masterfully. out of a recurring sigh, the tracks builds and builds until a tight groove and a raspy synth-bass kick in. another duo which debuted on emerald & doreen is go satta. they hit the nail to the head with a fantastic blend of disco, electronica, dub, and funk. their hold on the original new folks is a warm, breezy sing-a-long- type of tune in the early kid loco-vein. japanese electronica wizard haioka twisted some knobs to turn the already bewildering sweet lullaby into a woozy mantra. low-pitched vocals, sombre pad sounds, bell-like synth hits, backward loops, and a drag-like beat set the mood for a melancholic masterpiece. chilean prodigy statickman has his trademark chops in full effect when re-creating let it show to become a futuristic disco-vamp. the tune is vibrtaing with lush motifs that hail from the vaults of analogue synth heaven.
