NHOAH zu Remixen mit 808 State und µ-Ziq #acid #techno #electronic

A couple of remixes from 808  State and µ-Ziq for Nhoah’s track Abstellgleis (which seems to mean ‘siding’ or ‘spur’).

Nhoah means nothing to me. Apparently, he’s “a skilled producer, engineer and drummer in his own right, boasts a back catalogue which includes work alongside the producers of The Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, and Bronski Beat’s Larry Steinbachek. His previous album Tangowerk was nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik. His extensive list of achievements includes work with Jayne County and Romy Haag, arranging and composing for David Hasselhoff.” You had me until the Hoff reference. I know he’s big in Germany but not with me.

Anyway, the 808 State remix first. This is a curious beast harking back to the 90s. Like synth pop combined with Newbuild era 808 State electronics. When the acid gets properly broken out at the end and the synth pop gets left behind then the track really flies. µ-Ziq’s remix is even curiouser. No trace of the wilful IDM producer here. Seems to be channelling his inner JMJ. There are slow, moody banks of 70s/80s synths everywhere. Provided you forget it’s µ-Ziq and leave your preconceptions aside it’s not bad.
