Since launching the project in the late ‘00s, Frankfurt’s Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer’s Tuff City Kids moniker has become synonymous with quality that’s seen them cement a reputation as specialist remixers. The duo now reinterpret two Radio Slave productions released a decade ago.
Their take on "Bell Clap Dance" captures the essence of the original by factoring in its various elements, such as its intricate hook and gloomy melody. Radio Slave’s "Screaming Hands" then receives two new versions; the "Dreamscape UK Mix" is suitably titled thanks to soaring pads, subtle breaks, and a mesmerising bassline, whereas the "Krautdrums Mix’"meanders forward with distorted kicks, stuttering effects, and raucous acid.
