In the years since Nina Kraviz dropped some of her earliest music on Radio Slave’s Rekids, she has become a bonafide global superstar. Founding two record labels трип (trip) and Galaxiid, she regularly headlines the world’s largest music festivals and has continued to stay at the forefront of electronic music.
‘Taxi Talk’, initially released on Kraviz’s lauded eponymous debut LP in 2012, still stands the test of time with its spoken word vocals and smoky deep house grooves. Remixing the track alongside its reissue is Vision Ekstase founder and Lehmann Club resident David Löhlein who turns in a fresh remix, and Dutch techno mainstay Steve Rachmad, who unearths a remix made under his Sterac Electronics guise that had, until recently, been unreleased.
Löhlein’s remix sees the Stuttgart-based artist reach for his trademark ’snake sound’, delivering a sleek version flipped into a quick and urgent cut with pulsating synths and dynamic minimal drum funk. Sterac Electronics brings a distinctive sense of electric funk with a boogie-tinged remix full of colourful synths and hip-swinging drums that cannot fail to light up the floor.
“Taxi Talk is one of my all-time favourite tracks by Nina, so I asked her if it would be alright to remix it. She agreed, and we both ended up loving the result. I’m really grateful for the opportunity to remix a track that has accompanied me since I was much younger, and I truly appreciate the trust and support Nina has shown.” – David Löhlein.
