After releasing their critically acclaimed debut LP NOW (MALKA 007LP) in September of 2019, the people at Malka Tuti felt it was the time to continue pushing the name Shari Vari to new realms and territories... A remix pack was born. For the remix pack, Malka Tuti chose a few close friends of the family to give new life and new interpretations to the now "instant classic" songs by the Hamburg duo... The EP begins with Fantastic Twins's mid-tempo, Coil-inspired, break-beat groove, slowly building up in emotion with warm pads and '90s vibe acid lines towards an epic catharsis. Benedikt Frey takes it from there, remixing a personal favorite -- New York City, turning it into a dark trip-hop inspired journey, cleaning those distinct vocals, echoing Beth Gibbons's smokey high tones... On the B-side, you find Black Merlin's 11-minute trippy mid-tempo dancefloor banger. Cuts and slices from the original vocals of the song "Dance Alone", laid carefully on top of a repetitive modular bass line, and sprinkled on top -- those out-worldly sounds and FX that makes the track simply huge. Last but not least, Düsseldorf's very own Lucas Croon's Dub Version, released digitally in 2019, finally sees its day on wax. '90s break beat beats, gated vocals and everything else that takes to make a dancefloor hit the roof.
