Lemonchill – Clearness (Plusquam Chillout)
Israeli producer Lemonchill made himself a name as a very versatile artist, delivering heady Chillout tunes, joyful Lounge and Downbeat, but also highly danceable uptempo tracks and Minimal Techno. Two of his titles have now been re-interpreted by no less talented musician colleagues: Kalahari and Deepernet.
In his remix of Clearness, Kalahari manages to combine a rather fast and driving bass line with weightless sound textures. The result puts the listener into a state of blissful tension, highly stimulated and energized on the one side, chilled-out and relaxed on the other. A fine piece of Psy Chill that stands out due to its crystal clear production level.
Deepernet presents the popular Lemonchill title Freak as an uplifting Downtempo stomper. A really kicking kick drum and sharp, modulating synthesizer leads fuel this remix, surreal sounds and seeping melody layers create a proper pinch of psychedelic experience. The arrangement comes with some pretty mighty departures that would well fit any dance floor if played at a slightly higher tempo – its amazing to see how pushing a Downtempo track can be!
