KAGO DO – Thaidub (Bermudos)

One of our favourite labels Bermudos is back this week for one of their biggest releases yet. The duo from Thailand KAGO DO return to the label for fifth overall appearance and a new single entitled ‘Thaidub’.

The cool and sultry grooves that KAGO DO have become so loved for have never sounded better on ‘Thaidub’. The cool tech house framework is full of bubbly textures and haunting atmospherics. The funkiness of the record grows after the main breakdown with a wide array of well shaped modulating bassy tones that are just outstanding. Amazing work from KAGO DO who seem to get better with each successive outing. There are a wide array of remixes to choose from whether it be Audiostorm’s more driving ‘Groovin Architecture’ interpretation or Paul Lennar’s tough and floor friendly ‘Hypnotic’ rework. Ultimately though it’s the mixes from Madrem and Vlada D’Shake that we really love.

Russian producer Madrem first came to our attention with his EPs on System Recordings and with his remix here he makes his debut appearance on Bermudos. For his ‘Thaidub’ interpretation Madrem has taken all those cool, quirky elements from the original and re-created them in an amazing groove. The quick edits and metallic electronics add a real vibrant energy to the piece that should light up more than a few tech house floors in the coming months.

The second standout remix here comes from another hugely up and coming producer Vlada D’Shake. The Serbian producer continues to impress not only his close electronic music contemporaries but also Charlie May who recently included one of his remixes in a set for John Digweed’s ‘Transitions’ radio show. Vlada’s ‘Thaidub’ interpretation takes things down a dark and groovy path that full of lovely electronics and quirky rhythms. It’s the deep and spacious groove that makes everything work here, the well spaced bass stabs allow adequate room for the wealth of cool sound design to really shine. Excellent work from Vlada and another standout package from Bermudos.
