Silinder – Slow Emotion (Proton)

Proton revisits Silinder’s truly beautiful ‘Slow Emotion’ from 2014’s ‘Basement EP’, with new interpretations from Dousk and Andre Sobota.

Dousk does an excellent job of taking Silinder’s track and re-imagining it as a soulful, chunky, bass-led slice of contemporary house music, with strong, soulful vocal work, funky percussion, and a bassline that offers a strong nod to Silinder’s original. In contrast, Andre Sobota keeps the track at 110bpm, and doubles-down on the dubby atmospherics and gorgeous interwoven melodies and dreamy pads. The result is a deeply moving piece of music that’s perhaps even less likely than Silinder’s version to set dancefloors ablaze, but which offers 6 and a half minutes of pure aural bliss.

‘Slow Emotion’ was an absolute gem, and despite taking it in very different directions, both remixes here really do justice to Silinder’s track. I can’t recommend this release more highly than that.
