KLIT005 – Aoo&ooA “Vodka” Klientele – TECHNO
The project Aoo&ooA was created in 2006 by two producers named Andrius Klimka and Igor (aka Oxide). Aoo&ooA is a project that has always tried to diplomatically walk that line between accessible sounds, available to everybody and true underground culture. An impressive list of talent has been enlisted on remix duty to present a wide range of styles.
First up is a super hot remix from Harvey McKay (Soma/Perc Trax). McKay was quickly picked up by Jon Virtue and had his first release on Virtue's Artificial Silence label. Since then he has gone on to release on Perc Trax, Cubism, and now Soma. His influences range between Alex Under, Mark Romboy, James Holden and Soma label-bosses Slam. Ironically enough one of Harvey's first attempts at production was attempting to recreate the sounds he heard on Slam's Alien Radio album, in particular the deep techy bass frequencies.
Rounding out the release is Klientele's own Angel Alanis (Tresor/Klientele/A-squared) returning to form with a jaw dropping rework of the original that invokes shades of DBX classic on Accelerate while remaining absolutely modern.
