MIXTAPE: Van She ‘April 2013 Minimix’
VAN SHE‘s ‘Minimix April 2013′ begins with MACHINEDRUM’s Breathing remix of ‘Let It’ featuring MELO-X. It goes from a deep ringing bass, before heading into softness, wish-washing its listeners to a liquid state.
GROOVEBOX’s ‘Brooklyn’ has some great tones, the muffled kicks and bass are an innovative stand-out. The mix travels into a sea of youthful glory when VAN SHE’s remix of ‘Ich R U’ presents its show-stopping factors.
The synth manipulation in OLIVER’s ‘MYB’ comes by smoothly to present brilliant energy and vigour. VAN SHE continue to thrill with fresh sounds in their remix of ‘Spank’, containing sharp, catchy beats that will make any crowd jump until the dance floor cracks. Snap!
WOLFGANG GARNER’s ‘Anaconda’ has a fizzling effect and a synth that will rock any boat and body. The build-up to the zippy sounds makes it the perfect track for a summer speedboat getaway. DUKE DUMONT’s remix of ‘Falling’ highlights the original mix’s slightly tribal theme with its percussion.
VAN SHE’s mini-mix has a variety of influences both old and new, and contains a variety of well-executed remixes. This mix takes the listener to a state of bliss, and definitely creates a lot of anticipation for the fans.
