Jonas Reinhardt "Virgo Cluster (The Beat Broker Remix)"
San Francisco is repping hard on this download. Pulled from SF label Voltaire's VIARE 12" compilation (out today, artwork above), longtime Bay Area producer The Beat Broker takes on the synth-obsessed "Virgo Cluster" production from NYC-via-SF resident Jonas Reinhardt. In the hands of its remixer, "Virgo Cluster" almost doubles in length, its galactic synth streaks and delay-washed guitar strums stretched out to ensure an even more bountiful soundscape—which is then wrapped around a simple disco beat, and enhanced by just the right push of additional low-end strength. "Virgo Cluster (The Beat Broker Remix)" appears alongside Jonas Reinhardt's original track on VIARE, in addition to other productions from Roche, Timothy J. Fairplay, and Plaza—whose promo mix in celebration of the 12"s release can be streamed and downloaded after the jump. (An extra promo mix from Voltaire label boss Hotthobo can also be grabbed here.)
