Ebb, the much touted Swedish singer / songwriter who’s electronic excursions have been creating a great deal of buzz follows up his Alive EP with a killer selection of remixes.
Six versions make up this package and they cover a great deal of ground stylistically.
Spain’s Carreno is LB brings a deep, emotional texture to the track Silence - built around a simple, haunting melody and submerged, muted drums.
Hamburg’s own 53 Keys take on Time, and rework the original into a dreamy, heartfelt pop moment, with crunchy beats an undulating bassline and sparking guitars.
Panthera Krause’s two other mixes of Time are distinctly different - the Springtide mix utilizing Ebb’s vocals fully over an urgent slice of advanced electronica, while the other version brings in some breakbeat elements for a completely different vibe.
Taking on the title track Alive - Smallville boss Julius Steinhoff adds his signature deep and hypnotic take on the original - warm pads, crisp drums and shimmering percussion grace both the vocal and dub version.
