Originally released in the latter half of last year, Chasing Kurt’s ‘From The Inside’ quickly became regarded as one of the most anthemic house tracks of the 2013. The track combines soulful piano chords with an overwhelmingly powerful and emotive vocal; an innovative modern deep house classic which possesses genuine originality. Made up of Pascal Blanché, Wojtek Kutschke and vocalist Lukas Polocze, the Polish house group re-release alongside remixes from some of world’s most credible producers.
First up to remix Chasing Kurt’s vocal anthem is legendary German artist Henrik Schwarz who has a knack for making every one of his productions as exciting as the next. His rendition of ‘From The Inside’ is certainly no anomaly.
Konstantin Sibold’s mix is a completely different reworking altogether, as he uses denser kick drums and haunting claps as the bed for reverberating vocals and a bouncy hook.
Hamburg producer Lovebirds provides a classic house twist on the original with his Forte Piano Mix; a remix that combines gentle bongo percussion and soulful piano chords resulting in a funkier and more upbeat cut.
Tying up the release is an energetic remix from Copyright who make use of busy percussion and a catchy lead hook to forge a track capable of setting fire to any dancefloor
So the first track from their new album is christened “a future anthem” by Pete Tong on his radio show, hits the Number 1 spot on the DMC Buzz Chart and is Tune of the Month in Mixmag. Time to take the rest of the year off I guess?
Not for Kraak & Smaak – they have been busily sourcing like-minded souls to remix their summer hit while making sure the album that follows is an all killer, straight thriller affair.

One-half of Cologne-based house duo JTRP (a group who has frequently appeared on T. Williams’ Deep Teknologi imprint) Jorge Takei has released records of his own via Suruba and Kolorit which have slipped largely under the radar. “Aretha (Vocal Mix)” is one such production; initially made for a well-known white-label series, the sample-heavy track is now being offered up here for exclusive download. The edit of—you guessed it—an Aretha Franklin song, draws ample inspiration from the current wave of UK producers who are keen to explore the intersections of house, bass, and R&B—utilizing a slick low-end-oriented pulse to underpin the edit’s classic, hands-in-the-air vocal sample.
Viewers of the new video for “C O O L” (directed by Renata Raksha) who know their 90s music will likely pick up on the influence of a number of cultural touchstones from the time: chart-topping crossover club acts like Technotronic and Black Box, house divas like Robin S. and CeCe Peniston, and R&B icons like Aaliyah and Ginuwine, as well as a visual sensibility that evokes Herb Ritts in his role as video director to the decade’s biggest pop superstars. It’s got retro style while maintaining completely contemporary feel that’s free from gimmicks and offers stylishly relaxed relief from the ongoing onslaught of dayglo-tinged dubstep.
