May – the gateway to summer, and to greet it, Finnish sorcerer Orkidea has conjured a temperately charged remix ace from his hallowed 2015 ‘Harmonia’ album. The arch Retrofuturist has engaged the remix services of that master of the more progressive trance arts, Jerome Isma-Ae. The Munich native has subsequently reinterpreted the tones of ‘Harmonia’s irresistible ‘Nana’.
Keeping the track’s drum-centric rhythmics clean between his mix-crosshairs, Jerome nudges the tempo, intensifies the bass, jangles the percussion and zooms in tight on ‘Nana’s progressive tendencies.
Looping & modulating its summery Afro-funk vocal, he channels its exulting sub-Saharan chants into a spiritually uplifting conclusion that – floor-side – well, you may never completely recover from!
