Faded Ranger - the amalgamation of Chicago's Nick Maurer and London's Neville Attree via their adopted hometown Heildelberg - are set for exceptional things in 2014. With their debut album coming in autumn on hfn music, the duo have been honing their dynamic, affecting sound, ready for a full-scale assault on the senses.
Following their debut single 'Be On The Lookout' on hfn music, the impressive remix package is now released on hafendisko, the realigned subsidiary for the more club-oriented releases and mixes.
First up on remix duty is Berlin's techno gentleman Ed Davenport, who delivers a signature slice of brooding Berghain-esque techno goodness, with plenty of grit and menace thrown in.
Avant-garde dancefloor pioneer LOPAZZ joins up with Hawaii-based Willis Haltom to rework the track in a completely different direction - a spacey, drifting slow burn into the cosmos. Their work comes in two versions - a vocal and dub, while Vincenzo also drops a proto-house/electro rework that highlights Faded Ranger's new wave leanings.
Also included is the boys' 'Faded Rethink' remix from the original release - their clubby version that has been doing serious damage to dance-floors in the know for a while now.
