We are back with the 2nd instalment of our “FROM THE VAULTS” series. This series brings back great memories of our catalogue’s finest sprinkled with some yet un-released cuts.
The opener is kinda both - unreleased and a “classic”. Mathias’ rework of Jaap Ligthart’s “I Know Change” is a weapon, no doubt. “Unreleased?” you might ask. 2015 we’ve released a quickly sold out run of vinyl including a “Less Vox” version of Mathias’ remix. Fast forward six years we’re releasing this version digitally for the first time, which btw still features plenty of Alice Rose’s unique voice to cause goosebumps.
Next up, it’s us as SBTH with our very own “Jupiter Mix” of “Moritzplatz”. The track is inspired by the bustling changeover of Berlin’s Moritzplatz where Mathias’ Berlin studio is located at. The idea with this version was to set an antipode to the energetic “Mars Mix”. So we switched off the powerful analogue arpeggio and added this smooth, warm, constantly shifting Jupiter pad, completely changing the mood of the track into a timeless deep house gem.
In the same year, 2017, we introduced another fruitful studio collaboration between two LOSSLESS label members – namely Trikk and Mathias Schober who teamed up as Internacional Electrical Rhythms. The duo released a bunch of forward-thinking tracks on the label – futuristic, rhythmic, emotive and deep are some the attributes1 popping up when trying to describe IER’s music. We chose the brilliant “Furia” from their first EP which definitely should be re-experienced on the post pandemic dancefloors.
Closing things off is our Irishman Neil Flynn with “Flowers Don’t Bend In The Rain”. A track that sat on our hard drives for quite a bit. Summer of 2013 - final calls were made in setting up the label and our first releases – the track was part of a package which we got sent by a mutual friend and also included Neil’s “Louise” and “Connemara”. We always considered “Flowers Don’t Bend...” for a release but thought it might deserve a proper mixdown since the session was lost and the only thing we had was the bounce from back then so we put it aside. With our FROM THE VAULTS the tune came back on the table – still blown away by the emotions of the song we decided Mathias should use the old file, tweak the best possible master and we see where we end up. Well, here we are!
