Moon Harbour welcome back Super Flu after their appearance on Orbiter II for a series of remixes of their 2007 hit ‘Monaberry.’ Label boss Matthias Tanzmann and the pair themselves offer up fresh new versions.
This track was first released on Lorna in 2007, and Super Flu used its title when they later started their own label. Since then they have put out five studio albums and plenty of EPs on the likes of Mule Musiq and Hommage.
Up first is ‘Monaberry (2019 Werkzeug)’ which is a dark, twisted tech house tune with subtle layers of bells and whistles, scintillating synth lines and creeping darkness all making it utterly absorbing.
Matthias Tanzmann steps up with an excellent remix that is built on crisp house drums and hits. As the toms ping, female vocal coos add soul and a warped bassline prowls down low to bring real menace to this slow-burning banger.
Last of all, the original is included and still sounds standout with its quickened drums, deft synth stabs and floating sense of groove that sweeps you up and carries you away.
These are three very different but equally effective tracks that are guaranteed to make their mark.
