ELLEN ALLIEN put her particularly multifaceted side on display once again in mid-summer 2014: Her last EP „Freak“ contained three tracks with three moving emotional states, each spreading uniquely positive vibes. Especially the track „Freak The Night“ – with its warm bass, 303 acid dabs, Roland piano sounds and Ellen Allien sending out rave signals with her insistent vocals – turned out to be a hit.
Now the Berlin artist has invited some friends to remix the playfully creative track, alongside another track from the last EP, „Butterfly“. The latter opens the varied vinyl edition of the EP in a revised edition by the legendary Detroit Electro-Techno duo AUX 88. The two veterans have transformed the original into a magically dark rave monster, mer- ging Techno with a deepness that gets right under your skin, charmingly connecting the 1990s with the here and now. The Irish-born, UK-based producer EJECA, who recently debuted on BPitch with his EP „Space & Time“, then takes „Freak The Night“ and transforms the track into a futuristic Acid monster whose twisted wizardry ensures absolute magic in the club. Matt Edwards aka RADIO SLAVE, also had packed dance floors in mind when he reshaped „Freak The Night“ into a wild 14-minute House sensation, in the middle of which ELLEN ALLIEN‘s anthemic vocals swarm and scatter the senses. For the digital release of the remix EP, RADIO SLAVE also delivers an a cappella version of „Freak The Night“ as a tool for creative DJs that contains all the right ingredients for an extra special mix. The digital edition is rounded off with a revision by another House, Acid House and Techno veteran: L.A. WILLIAMS. The version by the producer from Chicago is filled with nervous claps, fiery hi-hats and springy bass, adeptly bringing Acid-laden Electro into the picture without the forgoing the irresistible pressure of Techno.
Here are four remixes, each of which encompasses an original dance universe, all of which approach the original ma- terial in a manner that is anything but formulaic. And as a link there is also a bewitched a capella version, which can be used to seamlessly combine all four remixes into an epic version of „Freak The Night“.
