Artist: Here Today
Release: Down Here Remixes
Label: Claqueur Records
Since its inception, Claqueur Records has always aimed its releases for both home and club listening purposes. With this very notion, a sound three decades in the making continues to breathe life into its core audience who desperately wish to find something more in electronic music. It takes dedication and commitment from everyone involved in a label to provide a glimmer of hope.
Here Today comprises of German resident musicians Engin Öztürk and Florian Schirmacher. The original vocal and instrumental tracks contain a moody bass loop, resonating chords and patient house rhythms in one simple package. This formula sounds routine and basic for avid deep house fanatics, but the electronic duo manages to keep an interesting flow of ideas throughout this house structure. UK veteran Ian Pooley heads the first remix, no doubt adding his signature thematic tone to the existing deep nature of Down Here. Including wild pitch elements to the second half of the track, Ian creates a track perfect for an energy-packed dancefloor. The Flying Remix, rearranged by Berliners Andreas Baumecker and Gokhan Demiray Biond, features a more pacing rhythm section and emphatic chords to compliment Ian's version. While both of these remixes are well done, you can't help but love the original instrumental and vocal mixes that much more.
