Review: After celebrating a decade of Create Learn Realise with a series of five releases, Chris Liebing returns to his Auf EP from last year enlisting a premiere cast of remixers to reimagine his epic Schranz beat. Scottish duo Edit Select extend their remix of "Auf Und Ad" over two parts, with part one a relentless EBM pump, little more than a distorted electronic funk beneath a pounding kick drum with a rising siren for company whilst part two is a fuzzier industrial take. Drumcell & Audio Injection also offer two remixes of "Auf Und Ab" which stick pretty close to a minimal groove. Dustin Zahn & Decimal team up and tackle "Auf Und Davon" for the remix highlight, with big fat kick drums piercing through the minimal soundscape of atmospheric chords with a sense of tension rising throughout the mix.
Review: Dustin Zahn's mix of "Kinda High Auf Und Ab" leads this release on Chris Liebing's imprint and it's a real techno treat. The vocals from the original are processed and looped stunningly over the top of a moody and hypnotic beat that maintains its momentum perfectly throughout the tune. Alex Bau's ?Arctica? is also included, and it's again made up of all the classic components - dark rumbling bass and ear-piercing hats that show no mercy.
