FEAT. HERNAN CATTANEO & AUDIO JUNKIES, REBOOT, TENSNAKE, ROD, PHIL MOFFA
What makes everybody’s darling duo Monkey Safari so special is surely their authenticity; with their striking debut album ‘Odyssey’, this meant producing the same kind of tracks they were playing as they toured nightclubs and festivals around the world, rather than simply a listening album. The result was a dance floor artwork. And while they may be perfectionists, they’re certainly no purists, carefully handpicking remixers they see as most capable of continuing their vision for the album.
Split in 3 separate EPs, ‘Odyssey Remixes – One’, ‘Two’, and ‘Three’ will be released in May, June, and July 2018, featuring reworks of the original album tracks by the master himself, Carl Cox, international stars Hernan Cattaneo, Guy J, Musumeci, Tensnake and Reboot, studio geniuses Dubspeeka, Hannes Bieger, ROD, and Phil Moffa, as well as up-and-coming talent Avidus, Trivmph, and Hommage label co-chief Karl Friedrich.
Hernan Cattaneo & Audio Junkies: “As big fans of MS, we regularly feature their tracks in our dj sets so it was really cool to get the offer for a remix where we could add our sounds and identity to an already great original.”
Reboot: “Being asked to lay hands on one track of the last Monkey Safari album was a big pleasure for me, as I have been a fan of their work for a while. Even though it was rather challenging, as the original is a perfectly produced floorkiller. So I tried to bring the track into a more dirty direction with a long breakdown, but without leaving the original`s idea too much. I hope people enjoy the results.”
Tensnake: “I had a blast remixing ‘Odyssey’. The vocals inspired me to remix it with a bit of 90’s industrial vibe.”
ROD: “Thanks to the great original parts, both my remixes flowed out of my system quite naturally. i was happy to do 2 complete different remixes. where ‘prologue’ is more about peak-time techno-energy, with ‘sign’ i tried to create a much more psychedelic underwater-ish vibe which i think worked out quite well with that soothing vocal.”
