Following the release of “Bigamo Remixed Pt. 1″ EP back in April, Âme’s Frank Wiedemann series exploring the back catalogue of his imprint Bigamo through the lens of friends of the label continues with the second installment. This time round, Wiedemann taps the minds of Running Back boss Gerd Janson, Alex from Tokyo & Neil Flynn, and Rina for remix duties on works by Abrão and Fred und Luna.

The EP opens with a “backwards” remix of Abrão’s “Por Ela” by Gerd Janson. On the six-minute remix, the playful tone of the original born again as a stylish house cut filled with deep pads under Janson’s capable guidance. Central to the track is the reversal of the genre’s iconic deep keys into a rolling hypnotic overture, which, filling the senses with lush lower frequencies, only highlights the crisp perfection of the percussion. Abrão’s naturally percussive vocals are heavily manipulated, and all the better for it.

The “Bigamo Remixed Pt. 2” EP arrives on June 19th via Bigamo. Pre-order it here.

Abrão: “Too Late To Ganges (Red Axes Remix)”

Âme’s Frank Wiedemann calls up friends and family for remix duties on nine tracks from the back catalogue of his eclectic label, Bigamo, reaching for some of the most respected names in electronic music to dig into the archives. The first three form the first of a trio of remix EPs, with Red Axes, Sado V (one half of Red Axes) and Dengue Dengue Dengue taking their talents to tracks from Brazilian-born Israel-based singer/songwriter Abrão and duo Keope.

Tel Aviv power pair Red Axes are no stranger to Abrão’s work, with the latter’s vocals featuring on their 2014 debut album “Ballad Of The Ice” on I’m A Cliché and 2015’s “Sabor” EP. The familiarity shows itself in the Israeli duo’s careful rearranging of “Aguas Sagradas Do Ganges” into a sundowner-set beauty, opening the track up to the dancefloor whilst preserving the original’s measured approach and plaintive vocals. Sublime from start to finish. The original track is lifted from Abrão’s 2018 “Omnam” LP, produced by Red Axes.

The “Bigamo Remixed Pt. 1” EP is out now via Bigamo. Get it here.
