Guy Gerber delivers remix package for ‘What To Do’. &ME and DJ Jes rework Guy’s acclaimed production.
Embodying a varied range of sonic arrangements that the Israeli DJ has become synonymous with, the original was released earlier this year and demonstrates varied cymbal-claps and a wide range of isolated percussive instruments. With &ME spinning his own dynamic rework of the track, the German – who has performed a number of sets across Ibiza this summer, playing at DC-10’s ‘Circoloco’ – adds groove-fuelled elements to the mix, a stark contrast to the deep and atmospheric style favoured by DJ Jes.
Keinemusik’s &ME makes his debut on DJ Koze’s Pampa Records.
Emitting his first material for Pampa, &ME’s ‘In Your Eyes’ EP is out now. A craftsman of all things deep and connoisseur of emotive touch, he is one of the scene’s central characters and one of the main figures of Berlin’s Keinemusik-crew.
The title track and A side to this EP wastes no time in charming the listener, the first chords of an improvised piano-piece entering after a few beats of the kick drum and tenderly laid upon a shimmering instrumentation. In comparison, B-side “As Above So Below” unfolds in a dry and dense sounding pattern, packed subtextual field recordings, a scale-riding synthbass at the tune’s centre-piece, sparking dance floor-ecstasy.
Art Department has unveiled 2 remixes to their hit track ‘Catch You By Surprise’ from their 2014 artist album, Natural Selection. They come from some of the hottest producers in today’s underground house scene – Guy Gerber and &Me. Both remixes are out now via Ultra Music and Art Department’s very own No.19 Music.
There’s nothing minimal about &Me’s remix, as whirring beeps and percussions softly caress the haunting top line – a vocal performance done by Art Department’s very own Kenny Glasgow. Powerful piano chords rip through an aggressively tuned drum beat in, perfectly dressing the track with his celebrated techno-leaning touch.
Guy Gerber takes a far darker approach with his rendition – a deep bass assaults the listener amidst dark echoes and fast paced drum play. Balearic hues and perfectly crafted pads make Guy’s take an instant classic, a remix that will fit perfectly into peak time forays. Dance music tastemaker Pete Tong has already been playing Guy’s take on ‘Catch You By Surprise’ out on his Essential Selection and All Gone Pete Tong radio shows.

About Art Department
Jonny White, acting head of No.19 Music and Canadian techno legend, Kenny Glasgow make up the infamous duo known as Art Department, a collaborative project that has seen almost unparalleled success within the world of dance music in recent years. In 2010 the pair transcended genre barriers and paved the way for countless artists with their first single – “Without You” which was awarded Resident Advisor’s “Track of the Year” and #1 track of the year at the 2011 Beatport awards paving their way to a level of success rarely achieved by underground artists.
Natural Selection represents the music, the story and Art Department’s evolution from the projects inception until now, alongside Kenny and Johnny’s personal journeys as individuals. Strewn with themes that centre on the cyclical idiosyncrasy of ‘natural selection’, Art Department explore a defined narrative throughout the LP; feelings of spiritual awakening and tranquility, indecision and turmoil tell a story in which the beginning could in fact be the end. Natural Selection is a diverse album in which Johnny and Kenny’s inherently seamless production is in-fact a prerequisite to their existence.
