MFM 14 – Neko Neko – Between Two Cities (pt 1)

Neko Neko drops the first part of his “Between Two Cities” series, entitled “Where“, backed by remixes from everyone’s favourite French beat-maker, Fulgeance.

Neko Neko‘s original mix on the A-side pairs lush harp samples with hefty kicks, claps and layered percussion loops. The track evolves nicely til the halfway point when it shifts direction, breaking down to a cosmic arpeggiated synth line that gets tweaked away while the other elements are expertly weaved in and out of the mix.

On the flip Fulgeance takes things down and dirty with a brutal remix aimed squarely at the clubs, chopping and filtering the main riff and layering it over his trademark rugged beats and subwoofer-shattering bass. This is followed by thugged out vocal samples and some innovative vocoder work.

To top things off, Fulgeance contributes another remix as a digital-only bonus track under his “Claude” alias, which comes free with the vinyl version via a download card. This time he steps up into housier territory with more subdued but still excellent synth melodies and uplifting piano chords.

Vinyl release includes original version and Fulgeance remix of “Where“, plus download code for free download of all 3 tracks.

Limited to 300 copies – Neko Neko‘s last vinyl release sold out in under 3 weeks so don’t sleep on this!
