Press Info (English):
Having just premiered her first ever live set at various festivals Steffi revisits her Power Of Anonymity album with three completely new versions of “JBW25” by Further Reductions and Answer Code Request.

Brooklyn-based duo Further Reductions left a big impression on Steffi with their 2014 Woodwork LP on Cititrax. Now Shawn O’Sullivan and Katie Rose turned “JBW25” upside down and inside out. The original version’s hypnotic synth bleeps are still there, but rhythm-wise Further Reductions live up to their name: Their version is a stone-cold and arhythmic interpretation of “JBW25” with additional vocals, pushed to the absolute fringes of dancefloor compatibility.

Berghain resident Answer Code Request contributes two versions to this release: While his “Vision” adds a tough drum beat, percussion and a stronger focus on the Ambient textures of the original, his “Revision” is more break-heavy, melodic and dreamy while setting a darker tone and mood overall.

With the original version and its Techno and Electro drive this 12“ comes full circle – a good fit for record bags travelling to various party settings and moods.

 

Press Info (German):
Nach der Premiere ihres ersten Livesets im Rahmen verschiedener Festivals wendet sich Steffi wieder ihrem Album Power Of Anonymity zu – mit drei neuen „JBW25“-Versionen von Further Reductions und Answer Code Request.

Das in Brooklyn lebende Duo Further Reductions hat mit der Woodwork-LP (Cititrax, 2014) großen Eindruck bei Steffi hinterlassen. „JBW25“ haben Shawn O’Sullivan und Katie Rose nun auf Links gedreht und auf den Kopf gestellt. Die hypnotischen Synth- Bleeps des Originals sind immer noch da, aber in Sachen Rhythmus werden Further Reductions ihrem Namen gerecht: „JBW25“ klingt mit den ergänzenden Vocals arrhythmisch, eiskalt und hart an der Grenze zur Tanzflächenkompatibilität.

Berghain-Resident Answer Code Request steuert zwei Versionen bei: Fügt seine „Vision“ einen schweren Drumbeat, Perkussion und einen stärkeren Fokus auf die Ambient-Texturen des Originals hinzu, ist die „Revision“ breaklastig, melodisch, träumerisch geraten und setzt zugleich eine dunklere Klangfarbe und Stimmung.

Mit dem Techno- und Electro-Drive des Originals ist diese 12“ eine runde Sache – und eine gute Ergänzung für verschiedenste Party-Settings und -Stimmungen.
