Image: 1578898 While FETSUM is about to take the US by storm (after a California
tour, in March he's going to perform at the SXSW Festival in Austin
and at the pre-Oscars party at the Villa Aurora in LA) Sonar
Kollektiv releases four seminal remixes of his song "Letters From
Damascus". One of the centre pieces of his current album "The
Colors Of Hope" is not describing the political situation in Syria, it's
more of an autobiographical tale about the golden voiced German-
Eritean's life.
These four remixes are irrespective to this fact. What Stuttgart based
Johannes Brecht has done to the track is almost an imposition. A
six minutes long intro packed with an arsenal of hi hats culminates in
a shatter pated crescendo only to decay shortly after with an outro
nearly as long. A brave hearted stroke of genius! The man with a
Classical music education sounds like the new savior of techno. So
it's not really a surprise that none other than Henrik Schwarz
released Brecht's first original material on his own label Sunday
Music last year.
A total different approach is taken by Jérôme Caron aka Blackjoy.
The French, who is a devoted ambassador of emotional nu house
for almost a decade, reconstructs a super deep shuffle beat and
adds a stellar Jan Hammer-like synth line around FETSUM’s vocals.
