Kasper Koman – All Ein (Movement Recordings)

With 2014 now well underway Tash’s Movement Recordings is now also in full swing with a solid run of releases to begin the new year. The labels 85th overall release features the return of Kasper Koman for his second appearance. The Dutch producer first appeared with his ‘All Ein’ production which was featured on the labels ‘Technical Progress Vol.3’ compilation from November of 2013. The deep tech house gem was loaded with effervescent character and funky grooves. The track now sees it’s official single release with two brand new interpretations from Hugo Ibarra & Uvo and SEQU3L.

The first interpretation is provided by the red hot Hugo Ibarra and Uvo. The Mexican duo are on the cusp of launching their very own ‘Intemporal’ imprint and their productions continue to be favourites of Hernan Cattaneo. The duo recently reworked Dmitry Molosh’s ‘Singing Heavens’ which was selected as one of Beatport’s Must Hear tracks for the week. Their interpretation of ‘All Ein’ looks to be set for a similar fate with its unique and powerful groove. A well textured kick, muted bass stabs and delicately wavering atmospheres set a wicked vibe early on. Sinister sounding vocal elements add a lovely amount of grit to the mix while the atmosphere continues to build towards the break. The pristine soundscape which serves as the records centerpiece provides immense atmosphere along with a heavenly mood to set up the second half. The clever beats return and a subtle metallic mod soon surfaces to further enhance your senses towards a brilliant conclusion.

The second and final remix is provided by SEQU3L who is making his 3rd appearance on Movement Recordings here. The Indian producer had a hugely successful 2013 with releases on Armada, Freegrant and of course Movement. SEQU3L’s brand of energetic, club friendly progressive house has struck a chord both with old and new fans of the genre. His remix of ‘All Ein’ goes down as one of his deepest and most enchanting creations to date. The subterranean foundation has a wonderful roll which continues to build great momentum throughout. The addition of a lovely hypnotic hook and a new twist on the vocal elements carry the piece to the breakdown. As the beats slowly strip themselves down a swirling vortex of atmospheric sweeps reveals a phasing lead line along with the punishing groove which rumbles it’s way to an exhilarating finish. Massive remix from SEQU3L which closes out another exceptional release on Movement Recordings.
