Filterwolf "Nocturne (Bodycode a.k.a. Portable Remix)"
Here, Munich's Filterwolf gets the remix treatment from Berlin's Bodycode (a.k.a. Portable), and while the original contains some interesting convergences of deep house and more electro sounds, the rework overtakes it. Slowing down the tempo and emphasizing the lush synth stems and vocal samples of the original, Bodycode's remix of "Nocturne" is what deep house should be, recalling slower Moodymann jams and even a bit of DJ Sprinkles. With the original up for free download on the Process Recordings site, though, listeners can make a decision for themselves, and even watch a sexy video while they're at it.
