A definitive label highlight and surprise best seller in our 2014 line-up, VERMONT's eponymous full-length (KOMPAKT 293 CD 114) already spawned a marvellous, slightly psychedelic remix EP from the one and only Prins Thomas (KOMPAKT 307). Following his vintage disco magick are much-acclaimed dance floor connoisseurs MANO LE TOUGH, DJ TENNIS and Vermont's MARCUS WORGULL himself, each producer putting his personal club spin on the rather informal source material.
Irish shooting star MANO LE TOUGH brings his warm and melodic, yet immensely driving style to ÜBERSPRUNG, putting the freeform sequencing of the original back on its dancing feet. Thick synth clouds orbit the skyline of Mano's revamp - grounded on sturdy beats and impregnated with a strong focus on the expertly streamlined melody. Vermont co-head MARCUS WORGULL follows with his wonderfully varied edit of the same track, opting for a decidedly bouncy approach that leaves no delay unturned. Life And Death's DJ TENNIS has the honor to wrap up this second round of Vermont reworks - he takes the stately stance of MAJESTÄT to even grander heights, reinforcing the cut's inherent epicness with incentive rhythms and finely textured synths.
