Content: Together with the “Re-Design”-EP Metroland also released this ‘extra’ production entitled the “Spacious Edition”.
We get exactly the same songs, but this time remixed by 3 other artists. The EP this way sounds more diversified in influences, but I can already tell you it’s fully complementary with the “Re-Design”-edition.
Jauzas The Shining is not exactly a familiar name in the underground scene, this French producer being involved into techno-minded productions, but his remix of “Design” is absolutely remarkable for its little EBM flavor. It sounds rawer and more into minimalism compared to the original song.
We next get a remix of “Vers La Cote d’Azur” by Notstandskomitee. I don’t’ know if this band has been reactivated for the special purpose of making a remix, but it’s an interesting feature and cool remix as well.
Last, but not least we get another remix of “Design”, but this time by Jean-Marc Lederman (The Weathermen) transforming the original version into another minimalistic electro formula, which totally fits with the original work of Metroland.
Conclusion: Great music and cool remixes for “Re-Design”. This EP is not as much into minimalism, but is always featuring intelligent electronics.
Best songs: “Design – Jauzas The Shinign Remix”, “Design – Jean-Marc Lederman Remix”.
