Federleicht - On The Street (The Remixes)

  • Share
  • The wavering bass that underlies SIS's remix of Federleicht's "On the Streets" is just about all you need to know here. It's tense, a little bit ominous and sounds ready to explode at any moment into something far more...well...anything. SIS's greatest work so far has mined that idea—the epic tease—to great ends and, while this is a much more refined affair than his previous euphoric moments for Sei Es Drum and Cécille, it still works excellently. In 2008, he sounded like Samim. Here, he sounds like Efdemin. Kollektiv Turmstrasse, on the other hand, sound exactly like themselves. On their two takes, the duo embody Connaisseur's self-styled genre tag for their work: Emo tech. The core mix is the house version, and they unspool the vocals and echo them into infinity, while stretching the drama to its breaking point. Turmstrasse have a knack for the event and you can tell that this has likely soundtracked the finale to more than one of their live sets. The second mix, however, goes to even greater ends to look for feeling inside of the original. They call it the Brokenheartz Mix, which apparently means IDM beats and naked, moody pads. It's a nice enough effort and shows an eagerness to stretch out to different genres, but Turmstrasse are no Telefon Tel Aviv—and it ultimately falls flat.
