Description

Six remixes of David Walters' hit 'Nocturne' album across this 12". The French singer/songwriter/DJ/composer's penchant for creative re-invention is on full display on this EP that shows off the creative dexterity of DJs and producers from Europe and the Caribbean.

Featuring remixes from producers from France (Folamour, Synapson, Patchworks/Voilaaa); Germany (Henrik Schwarz); Portugal (Batida) and Guadeloupe (Déni-Shain & Mister Francky) the EP enacts Walters's resolutely international and collaborative artistic vision.

Henrik Schwarz's take on "Mama" - the German DJ best known for his mixes of Ebo Taylor and Pat Thomas - introduces a distinctive keys motif, shifting the scene to dancefloors (far removed from the song's original lilting, lyrical vibe). If there's a through line for the new remixes collection it's the EP's delicious groove. See, French producer duo Synapson's version of "Baby Go" that's sustained by disco dreaminess, strings for enhanced effect, playing around with momentum. Or the gorgeous Folamour-helmed "Sam Cook Di" sustained by the intricate Romantic sensibility of 90s Parisian House.

The inclusion of Folamour - the Lyon-based DJ/producer charged with carrying the torch of French electronica, check out his Mix Mag cover from April 2021 - in the EP line-up is quite a coup. Other highlights are the EP's twin re-invention of the song, "Papa Kossa" - a homage to the Cameroonian saxophonist/singer Manu Dibango, dubbed "Papa Groove" who passed away in March, 2020 - by Lisbon's Batida and also DJ team, Déni-Shain and Mister Francky, who are currently based at the legendary Debs studio at Point-à-Pitre, Guadeloupe.
