PREMIERE – Alex Niggemann – Technology (Fabrizio Mammarella Remix) (AEON)

AEON is nearing its 50th release. But before they reach that milestone, comes a fine record by the label boss himself, Alex Niggemann. The inspiration behind this release was found in experimenting with a vocoder. Alex explains: “society might have us all as robots if we don’t take care to be open minded – both musically and in general. That was the inspiration for the record and it was great fun to make”. A view that fits the current zeitgeist perfectly.

The ‘Technology’ vibe is inspired by late 80ies breakbeat. Once the beat is in full range with the sparkling & upclimbing synths, pictures of vintage B-boys & girls, making their acrobatic dance moves, are projected in our minds. A slight twist brings the classic Juno 6 lead synth, characterizing the main part. For the remix, AEON invited Fabrizio Mammarella, who’s known from his releases on DFA, Permanent Vacation and Correspondent as well as his collaborations with Lauer as Black Spuma. Mammarella’s version of ‘Technology’ transforms the break beats into a solid 4 to the floor groove, while the more electro bassline of the original is replaced with a classic Italo inspired synth sequencer that will undoubtedly please the crowd on the dancefloor.

Release Date – 29/01/21
