Joseph S Joyce’s 2014 dub techno hit ‘Vedanta’ returns in 2023 with fresh remixes from El Choop, Sebastian Mullaert, Van Bonn, Federsen, Paul 90 and more, on this six-track vinyl and digital package, coming via his own Default Position imprint this June.
The original "Vedanta", which featured remixes from the renowned Sebastian Mullaert, was met with acclaim and support from leading DJs such as Sven Väth and Joris Vorn. It was therefore only natural that a remix EP should follow.
Nearly a decade on and El Choop opens this new release with his ‘Reconstruct’ twist. The Echocord artist lays down a typically raw and subtly nuanced rework before Sebastian Mullaert returns once again with an ‘Ambient Mix’ providing, as the name would suggest, a cinematic journey through washed-out chords and subtle melodies.
Freund der Familie and Kontakt artist Van Bonn steps up next, with a slick, reduced, dub techno take before San Francisco’s Federsen shifts focus to tribal-tinged drums and deep hazy atmospherics.
Paul 90, follows with his ‘Basement Mix’ offering up a deep house-leaning aesthetic via bubbly chord sequences, crisp percussion, and dubbed-out vocal hooks. Joyce’s own ‘Live Revisit’ rounds off the release and comes as a free bonus download with each copy of the vinyl.
