Harold Boué aka Abstraxion is a french London based producer. His two previous singles on Different Recordings, Jus` Acid and Jaipurs Elephant were supported by Andrew Weatherall, Erol Alkan and Brodinski to name but a few.
Harold explains his idea behind this new track,`The word Moribayasa comes from Guinea, it’s a dance for a woman who has overcome a great adversity.
The idea was to create hypnotic and psychedelic music that makes the body dance. Something that is pulled from deep inside to create a chant, from darkness to light. A kind of a shamanic experience.`
The stellar remix package comes courtesy of Argy, DJ Kaos and Brioski
Argy says of his remix - "When i heard the original for the first time it was clear to me which part i was going to use as i immediately fell in love with that industrial sounding lead sound that Abstraxion wrote. My idea was to build a bridge between old school NY Warehouse beats and a more futuristic Berghain aesthetic. Something that could have been made 10 years ago or 10 years later in the future."
Dj Kaos on his Re – Edit says – “I just stripped down the original mix! i had a feeling that it works better with less elements going on. The original mix is great too but for my taste and club experience its just too much going on, too much building. i just looped two parts of the song and build new rhythm parts snares, claps, hi hats very simple and functional. The mix works amazing!.`
And finally Brioski says of his remix of Alter Echoes, `I wanted to add a funk touch with the inclusion of slap bass. I wanted to keep the Abstraxion sound synthetic, developing my remix with analogue sound, some percussion, mystic riffs and at times psychedelic.`
