This And That Lab is a label headed up by Davide Squillace as an outlet for music that matches his critically acclaimed taste with a vibrant back catalogue featuring established artists like Yousef, Carlo Lio & Carl Cox. The latest This And That Lab release features new remixes of Re.You and Florian Busse’s classic track “Cuando” which was originally released on the label in 2016. Adding to the booming tom drums, dramatic synths and atmospheric vocal of the original, are three new solo reworks from Matthias Tanzmann, Haiku 575, plus the label boss himself Davide Squillace.
First on the EP is Davide Squillace’s remix which has the original’s melodic bass overlaid with a new percussive groove. Using bits of the original vocal, this rework is all about the drums with a series of flangers and other effects being used to raise the drama. This tribal rework is true to the tech house sound Davide Squillace has made his trademark, but still reminiscent of the original version. Track two is the rework from Matthias Tanzmann that strips away the original’s bassline and focuses on chopped up snippets of the vocal, which are creatively arranged into rhythmic textures. Adding a twisted lead synth, this remix is distinctly different from the original, with the fast flowing percussion being at the centre of the up-tempo groove. Finishing things off is Haiku 575 whose version goes down a synth lead, melodic route, with the original tom drums still at the heart of the track. Adding their own bassline and keeping the percussion stripped back, their spacious remix has a deep sound full of atmosphere. With slow building tension and an uplifting mood, the tracks laid back vibe adds great contrast with the other two versions. We are happy to premiere Haiku 575’s version of ‘Intersection’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy !
