Franksen – Dub 120 feat. Daniele Casa/ Original Mix The club-track of the pack. Minimal and dub-techno expert Casa and Franksen explore a dense web of bassgrooves. Dubby synths keep the stomping groove aloft. Distinct teasing vocal snippets and strings fill the twirling air with love!
Franksen – Dub 120 feat. Daniele Casa / Phable Remix Known for elegant techhouse vibes for Audio Safari or Plastic City, Phable polishes the dusty original to a shiny deephouse gem, making us see the light when the dub led us into darker spheres. Mind you, his soothing chords are real rays of light, sunglass advisory!
Franksen – Melon Collie Dub / Original Mix Piano dub chords caress a low-slung groove while heavily dubbed-out FXs and percussions lend a light in the dusty atmospheres. Melancholy becomes a sweet and meditative mood. Dwell in a groovepool of inner pleasure!
Franksen – Melon Collie Dub / Shayde Remix Connaisseur Recordings’ artist Shayde hails from the depths. Stripping the original down to 111 bpm this refix welcomes summer days, encounters within your inner depths and an elastic groove that shuffles a cool breeze into any kind of heat!
