For Kiosk ID’s 24th release, Michael Ritter and Felix E deliver an eclectic bouquet of dreamy saw waves and body-moving percussion. ‘Plastikrosen’ feat. Solveig Eger is a gently morphing 5-tracker that explores the auditory intersection between natural and synthetic soundscapes with remixes by Mulya, Xinobi, and Jacob Groening. ‘Plastikrosen’ merges emotive sirens and organic drums with clanging resonance and electric undercurrents. Resonant stabs and Solveig Eger’s mangled vocal hook cut across the track’s warm, chord-driven aesthetic in a thought-provoking juxtaposition that leaves the listener to fill in the blanks.
Mulya’s rendition builds on the original’s underlying tension. Morphing staccato stabs and Mulya’s signature martial drum work transform ‘Plastikrosen’ into a pressurized up-tempo groover with stripped breakdowns and a shuddering energetic apex. Xinobi’s interpretation opens up a fairy-tale world of heavenly choirs drenched in nostalgia. Soothing waves of angelic chords and a sweeping carpet of washed-out white noise conjure a weightless dream of sensual exultation. ‘Berührung’ strips Michael Ritter and Felix E’s mesmeric grooviness into an emotional hymn with anthemic qualities. An emotive chord mantra envelopes the track in waves of soothing warmth that transport the beauty of human interconnectedness.
Jacob Groening’s version of ‘Berührung’ trades drama for danceability. Anchoring the original’s cinematic chords in a compact groove with a percussive edge, Jacob transforms the original into a floor-focused tool with a sweeping energy arc.
For their Kiosk ID debut, Michael Ritter and Felix E deliver an EP steeped in the warm embrace of the saw wave. Combining melodic euphoria and an organic substructure with an intriguing vocal hook, ‘Plastikrosen’ is pure brain food for the soul.
