Rheinzand – Blind (Gerd Janson Remixes) are out now in all digital stores.
Gerd Janson sends Rheinzand into orbit with this turbocharged remix double. The Running Back label owner and longstanding DJ heavyweight enlists his house music fluency, revving up the disco gleam of ‘Blind’ on its own terms. Charlotte Caluwaerts vocals reverberate through space ray arpeggiators and burnished drum gates in a pulsating play of silver and silk.
Janson’s effort here sends our thoughts to gentler times as we imagine it either booming from a preposterous sound system in a sweaty basement or glowing in Mediterranean starlight. Either way, the energy of this one deserves a real dancefloor so let’s hope it gets one soon.
‘Blind’ featured on Rheinzand’s self-titled debut album, which came out in 2019 to high acclaim, named Piccadilly Records’ album of the year. This release, featuring Janson’s ‘Dance’ and ‘Dub’ remixes, comes within a series of remixes of tracks from that album.
A few more (including other treatments of ‘Blind’) will follow before we finally compile them all in a remix album, celebrating Rheinzand’s chameleon take on dance music.
