Paul’s new remix album X will be released right in time for summer! It’s been eight years since his 2006 Reworks remix, and now X features remixes from Berlin Calling, Icke Wieder, and Guten Tag.
The eleven tracks have been getting a lot of attention in the European underground scene, following their release as individual 12″ vinyl singles, and the entire collection will be released on CD and digital formats this 30 May.
The selected crew of remixers is staffed by longtime personal friends and other related artists out of Paul Kalkbrenner’s world of music. To keep it in the Kalkbrenner family, his brother Fritz Kalkbrenner delivers excellent new vocals for Kruppzeug’s transformation into a classic house track, while Paul’s wife Simina Grigoriu refines the techno track Kleines Bubu.
The French techno legend Vitalic presents his remix for the Berlin Calling classic Altes Kamuffel while “the Dutch man of the moment 2014“ Joris Voorn hands over his hit-tune deep house interpretation of Jestrüpp.
The Berlin school of techno and house is represented by Format:B, Housemeister from the Boys Noize camp and the legendary Maertini Broes consisting of Mike Vamp and the E-Werk veteran DJ Clé. Also hailing from Berlin are Pan-Pot who have been 2013 world tour buddies with Paul Kalkbrenner. They deliver a well produced big room version of the 2011 hit single Das Gezabel.
Similarly impressive is the Cab Driver’s remix of Globale Gehung from the Guten Tag album. Another musical highlight is the Robag Wruhme remix for the massive tune Sky & Sand which is a complete new and unique approach to the Berlin Calling classic. The Mallorca-based duo Pig & Dan round up this unique Paul Kalkbrenner remix package with their tech-house production of the Icke Wieder opening track Böxig Leise.
