Jimpster's much loved Eel Pie Island track first graced the coveted 10 Years of Systematic compilation from last year. Now, after widespread love, label boss Marc Romboy has commissioned a set of remixes to give the track an extra lease of life for the coming summer months.
The originals, locomotive esque, slow-mo jam is taken on first by Keinemusik main-man and Cocoon favourite Adam Port. The German brings techno and minimal sensibilities to the fore but with extra tempo and swing. A mid tempo beat drives the track as atmospheric flourishes and nuanced samples create a lighter and breezier feel. An added vocal adds a hazy dose of ethereal pleasure, as Adam creates another slice of musical magic.
Fresh from his Objektivity release, Hyenah offers a version of Eel Pie Island that brings a chiming, plonking vibe, wood block percussion and bongos, all fluctuating in a sea of tribal beats, deep house and delicious sub bass. Another triumph for Systematic.
