Following two radical reinterpretations earlier this summer from Truncate and Yaleesa Hall, which earned plays from Roman Flügel, Laurent Garnier and Ben Sims to Dusky and Huxley, Kamera’s ‘Ventoux’ EP is further expanded with two remixes that tastefully expand the producer’s original vision of uncompromising body music.
Festival and club favourite George FitzGerald is on hand first, delivering a blistering remix of Consignia, one of his personal favourite club records in recent times. Here, FitzGerald continues his masterful streak of production, knowingly blending the somewhat menacing machine throb of the original with a suspenseful bassline, eventually culminating in a heavenly, ethereal breakdown, one that’s certain to leave bigger rooms in throes.
Meanwhile, Throwing Snow’s remix of title track ‘Ventoux’ deconstructs the bright, IDM inspired anthem into something equally frenetic yet utterly different. Punchy live drums begin to escalate over a deeply satisfying electronic snarl, recalling Throwing Snow’s noted fascination with post-rock, while maintaining the tempo with naturally evolving elements of industrial and EBM.
