me succeeds: rongorongo remixed

For the first part of Ki Records' split series Hamburg, the Hamburg-based band Me Succeeds did a remake of Arp Aubert's "Actress." In return, Arp Aubert, consisting of Mirau label-founder Stephan Lorenz, made a beautiful, dreamy remix for Me Succeeds' "Riemerling." Now the remixing goes on for a full-length album. After their last album Rongorongo from 2011, which Me Succeeds released on their own imprint isawmusic, the band return to Ki Records with a remix album. Eleven friends were invited to put their hands on the album's tracks and lend their own interpretations. Besides a whole lot of danceable tracks, you will also find some broken beats and spherical electronica here, which makes this release fit perfectly into the Ki catalog. Of course, Arp Aubert once again got his hands on one of the tracks, turning "Rongorongo" into a driving techno track which is underlined by the emotional vocals of lead-singer Mohna and beautiful melodies, making this remix perfect for the early hours of the dancefloor. The Berlin based producer and DJ Iron Curtis gives the original of "Seventeen" a dubby note that is definitely special, as he uses many vintage synthesizers-sounds and broken pieces of the original vocals to make this remix one of the strongest on this album. The last remix on the album was done by Greek musician Chronik, who turns "Books" into a hymn with twisted rhythms and broken beats. Apart from that, a few more great producers such as Tilmann Tausendfreund, Showing Off The Bling Bling, Christian Löffler, On:Stop:Off, My First Trumpet, Iron Curtis, Lorin Sylvester Strohm, Bug Lover, My First Trumpet, and Suburb contributed to this Rongosium.
