Spencer Parker’s Work Them imprint has quickly built a reputation for unreconstructed dance music that flits between house and techno, enlisting the likes of Dana Ruh, Pittsburgh Track Authority, S:VT and Radio Slave alongside original work from the Berlin-based DJ and producer. Following the label head’s EP in March, Parker enlists Patrick Graser and Aaron Siegel in their Answer Code Request and FIT guises to sprinkle their own dust over the thumping techno of Spacial and Faster Forward’s classic piano house leanings.
The FIT Remix of ‘Faster Forward’ subverts the original’s house aethsetic into a shuffling, off-kilter mix that focuses on the piano and pads’ melodies and envelops them in broken percussive loops, adding a dream-like glow to its lofty intentions.
The beginning of 2014 saw the end of Spencer Parker's It's Not Over project but avid listeners of his boundless house and heavy duty techno satisfied their appetite for new material when Parker released his EP The Moment Not The Memory in March (with support from the likes of Dave Clarke and Danny Krivit). Well now it's had the remix treatment from two of the scenes most in demand producers...
First of the three tracks is Answer Code Request's remix of Spacial. An uncompromising techno number from the outset; broad and heavy bass pumps life into this track at an unrelenting frequency. However, it proves its melodic abilities as it invites arpeggiated fuzzy synths, accompanied by tight yet dampened notes. It remains consistent and somewhat uneventful, but delivers in its purpose of a club-ready track that's fit to make an audience burst. DJs wanting to give this mesmeric track a lick of their own paint can make use of the beatless loop.
FIT's remix of Faster Forward takes a turn from the previous track and retreats to a melancholic cove. Slightly offbeat pangs have backup from alluring, drawn out house-synths and dashes of high-hat that are, though subtle, carry the track through. Modest yet timeless piano keys dodge in and out as a grooving bassline swims underneath. This nine-minute track reaches full circle as it closes with its introductory notes; a sound that belongs in a closing set.
