Connan Mockasin – Forever Dolphin Love (Erol Alkan’s Extended Rework Version 2)

6 July 2012

Only a Londoner like Erol Alkan can produce and remix such a delicate voice and one of the best tracks of 2011 and only a Londoner can raise the bar on one of the best remixes of last year, his own rework on Connan Mockasin‘s Forever Dolphin Love.

A new edit for the new Bugged Out! Mix / Bugged In Selection mix which happens to come out in a couple of months on !K7 Records (September 3rd to be more precise). 2 sets, “one side club-oriented, one aimed at home listening” which compile and reflect the magic he’s capable of… from Smith N Hack’s ‘To Our Disco Friends’ to our much admired In Flagranti.

Erol mixed the set live in a couple of takes, no computerised beat matching or studio trickery. Why? “For me, that’s what DJing is about, spontaneity, mistakes, records trying to keep up with one another” he says. It took just two takes, as he was nearing the end of the second, the sub bass of Spandex’s ‘The Bull’ shook the speaker off the mantelpiece of his music room at home and sent it crashing to the floor, leaving a deep dent in the floorboards. “I just thought, It’s going so well I’m going to carry on,” he laughs. “I didn’t want to detract from capturing that moment. That’s where – for me – the electricity lies: in the moment, not crafting something that’s perfect on a computer.” No computers for Mr Alkan then, he clearly doesn’t need them.

This one is not included in their previously released & hot-as-hell album” Worse for Wear”, but “Interdisciplinarity” (also on their very own Codek)  is too good not to be sold separately. For In Flagranti it’s always been about filthy parties, now they mix dirty house with some old disco to create the ultimate dancefloor experience.

The duo formed by Sasa Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor who’ve been producing these beats for quite a while  are back with their vintage porn aesthetics (now that everything is vintage and / or porn) to influence those who’ve been left out.

Btw the cheesy Swiss duo will be mixing some vinyls live @ Eastnor Castle next Thursday and London’s Queen of Hoxton the following day (no need to go to Field Day you know, or rush straight after it). If not they’ll be back to the UK early September too! (The Nest).

Their WFW album can be fully streamed on Codek’s soundcloud page and bought via Juno… in case you missed it. Enjoy and dance!
