One year on from the release of his self titled debut album, rising French producer Zimmer is back with a remix EP on Roche Musique. His polished house sounds have been handed over to a top notch crew of friends and influences for reinterpretation.
First out of the gate is Running Back boss Gerd Janson with short and extended dance mixes of ‘Rey’. Both are joyous, summery tracks full of swirling synths and retro bass, recalling the classic sounds of Scandi disco from Lindstrom and Todd Terje.
French crew You Man take on vocal cut ‘Wild Flowers’, turning into a dark, dirty, dubby chugger. Panama’s vocal stretched and treated into a James Blake style atmosphere.
Mexican outfit Zombies in Miami take ‘Mayans’ into darker, big room territory, with similar sounds from Lauer’s bubbling Italo take on ‘Mouvement’ and Kendal’s breakbeat version of ‘Techno Disco’.
Amtrac’s dubby, hazy, vocal mix of ‘Make it Happen’ sounds destined for heavy radio rotation.
A shimmering, polished gem from an artist you might have missed first time around.
