Last year’s Mosaik LP from Camo & Krooked continues to reverberate through the scene a year later as the final pieces of their equally epic Mosaik Remixed LP begin to surface. With the original consciously designed as a touchstone not only for Camo & Krooked but the genre itself, the remix album serves as a similar testament to the genre as a wide range of artists step up to add their own unique twist to the proceedings.
From new-school names like Fred V. & Grafix, Signal, Document One, and Kimyan Law to heavyweight powerhouses like Noisia, Culture Shock, Artificial Intelligence, SpectraSoul, DLR, and so many more, the remix project also manages to reach beyond traditional genre boundaries with artists like Klangkarussell, IAMU, Dan Dakota, and Bop offering master lessons in genre deconstruction.
Still, it’s this emo-driven “Heat of the Moment” remix from Ram Records’ wunderkind Bensley that has us coming back for more. Displaying his trademark goosebump-inducing sensibility, Bensley delivers a stunning rework of that elevates the already epic original into future classic territory.
Able to ride that fine line between dreamland and the dancefloor, Bensley eases us into things with a patient and slow-churning intro, before an untouchable percussive groove takes over and drives the jazz-tinged core of the tune to its stunning climax. Centered on a haunting and heart wrenching male vocal throughout, the subtle evolutions that take hold as the tune unfolds arrive just in time to sweep us into the weekend.
