With releases on Marc Romboy's Systematic label and Riva Starr's Snatch imprint, this German duo have been steadily gaining a hot fanbase - one that should grow even further with this new release on Defected. Subtle deep-yet-funky grooves abound here as a simple key riff is slowly raised while jazzy hats and cymbals fashion a beat around it a la St. Germain. Reboot's remix goes seriously deep by keeping the piano riffing at almost sub-aquatic levels of EQ, but makes up for it with some razor sharp drums and thick kicks.
Wherein Kaiserdisco gets to grips with music from some of house music's biggest names and emerge smiling. The take on Steve Lawler's "Distrait" is classic Kaiserdisco, with heavy bongo drums leading into shaking percussion and later on a dramatic, string-led breakdown. Meanwhile, the take on Dualton's "Face Off" is slightly more understated, with stripped back, minimal rhythms underpinning insistent vocal sampling and an infectious disco filter. But the killer remix here is the re-rub of Booka Shade and label owner Marc Romboy's "Every Day In My Life". Over tribal beats and a huge filter, an unnamed woman sings the catchy refrain "I got something for your mind, your body and your soul /every day of my life". It's the kind of vocal refrain that will seduce even the most hardened purist.
