My Bluff (Dairmount & Berardi Perspective)
Artist: Audio Soul Project

Audio MP3

The original of “My Bluff” appeared earlier this year on Audio Soul Project’s full length “Hip Shake Heartache”. This tune combines the voice of talented Minneapolis native Alexander East with a tempered electric piano performance by Frenchman Richard Gow. Mazi’s original production is part Salsoul-style disco, part 90s deep house. For this mighty remix package we’ve enlisted talents from Germany and our beloved home town Chicago.

Hot off their highly successful work for Freerange and Composite, Phil Darimont and Marino Berardi aka Dairmount & Berardi present the first reinterpretation of “My Bluff”. Their organic approach is astutely modern, taking it’s time to develop; each element – the new electric piano, the freshly chopped Alexander vocals, the re-freaked guitar licks, the arpeggiated synthesizer – slowly blooms to the surface of the mix. The Hamburg natives manage to invent a remix that is at once atmospheric and bone crushing on the dance floor. The Dairmount & Berardi Perspective walks the path trodden by stalwarts like Tom Middleton, Circulation or Moodymann in one of his psychedelic moods.

Third wave Chicago phenomenon Joshua Iz takes the reins for his ‘Vizual Mix’. Josh has been a staple in the Chicago and San Francisco house scenes since the mid 90s releasing some of our favorite tracks via landmark labels like Prescription, Guidance, NRK and Tweekin. He just released his impeccable “It Iz What It Iz” long player on Vizual Records. His 10 minute plus reworking of “My Bluff” uses all of Alexander’s vocals rewriting the musical structure from the ground up. The result is a cosmic disco romp brimming with layers of pads, emotional strings, subtle drones, finely sculpted synth stacks and bouncing staccato bass – the sound is almost new wave and completely Iz.

Klas Lindblad’s Freestyle Man pseudonym should need no introduction among house heads. Under one of his many guises (either as Sasse, Thirsty Monk, Mr. Negative, Morris Brown or others) Klas has steadily become one of Germany’s most revered and consistent house producers. His spacious Easy Street Dub of “My Bluff” is designed for the long blend. Each of the loosely swinging elements hop almost invisibly into the sequence, imprinting an unforgettable groove into any dancers long term memory. The swelling strings, skipping echoed clavinet and morphing sub bass serve as perfect compliments to edited parts from the original.

The final entry in this package is an elegant extended version of “My Bluff”. The track’s main sections are kept intact with additional bars of rhythm added to the introduction and end maximizing every last bit of groove for club play.
