Li-Polymer returns to Balkan Connection this week for his 25th appearance on the label. The Portuguese producer delivered a superb interpretation of Namatjira’s ‘Sequoia’ on 3rd Avenue and also has Classound, Mistique, Clinique and Afterglow on his discography. His new single for Balkan Connection is entitled ‘Sense Of Imperfect Beings’ and it comes with a remix from Loquai.
It’s a strong original production from Li-Polymer and one of his more enchanting sounding pieces to date. The intricate sounding groove carries some nice weight while the dreamy top end adds the ultimate contrast. It’s not a record that jumps out and hits you square in the face but one of immense subtlety. The growling bass stabs are fabulous and add some nice character to the otherwise delicate framework. If you’re looking for a record to lay down some great atmosphere and build anticipation for what’s to come this would be absolutely perfect. Nice work from Li-Polymer. The lone remix is provided by a very busy man this week Loquai. Already delivering a wicked remix for 3rd Avenue the Russian born but Germany based producer has come up with a great rework here as well. Loquai has really transformed the track into one that’s full of cool hooks and funky rhythms. The playful nature of the melodies is incredibly catchy and absolutely perfect for a wide range of dance floors. There is always this air of effortless flow about Loquai’s productions; he seems to go from idea to idea without you even noticing how you got there. Perfect mid-set material from Loquai and it rounds out a very refreshing release from Balkan Connection.
